    Hey, I rescued a horse! Can I please have a free pony cart and harness? I'd prefer new, cause I still want to look sharp with my free stuff.

    While you're at it, can I have a free barn full of hay? My loft holds 2000 bales. I'd like it filled please. Also an unlimited-balance gift card for my vet for the next two years would be great, since y'all are such giving folks

    Unless they're a LEGITIMATE, REGISTERED rescue that's proven by their listing as a 501c3 organization, you're extremely naive if you send things to people just because they're begging.

    Do you really want to help someone else support their horse hoarding habit? Because that's all it is. They want to sit back on their butts and let other people throw money and tack at them.

    My money, items, and time can be better spent on local shelters and legitimate rescues.

    It amuses me that you think somehow you're more noble that the rest of us, because you're not smart enough to get a tax deduction on items and money you give away.

    Anyone can call themselves a rescue. Doesn't make it true. Real rescues do their due diligence and get all the proper paperwork and legal classifications in order before they start asking for donations.

    OP, if you want stupid people to just blindly give you stuff because you're claiming to be a rescue, go over to the ABR Forum. Those people are dumber than a box of hair, and throw money at anyone who will give them a sob story.

    I have a saddle and pad with cinch that you can BUY for $325 and if you are a legit non profit rescue, you can write it off at the end of the year.

    Dude guys im just trying to help out. And its not so much the people I want to help its the horses. Like honestly not one of you is going to believe me but I honestly sat down with my grandpa and told him I want to be president to help horses out like. I want to restore all the wild horses. And not neccesarliy president of the us but something that will make a difference. Herer in utah all the wild mustangs are being brought in to be adopted out to people. I believe wild horses made this world. Theyve been around forever as wild horses that roam the free lands. I want to make a difference. Those who care for what I say thank you. Those who don't believe me im sorry but this is what I want to do in my life. I want to make a difference in theses horses lives

    Where is this forum where they throw money at you? I rescued a couple kids from my womb and need money for a nanny.

    OP: I don't see anything on that site about them being a non profit rescue. There is hardly any info on them at all. It looks to me like they are flippers.... who are getting a great deal of stuff already from other people providing for their horses (look on their thanks for donations page).

    If you look on their facebook I see a whole lot about funds and donations but nothing about their legal status as a rescue.

    Sorry but people are cautious about these kinds of things. Nobody wants to support people who are going about things the wrong way. Now if you could prove they were a legitimate rescue....

    Omg I work for them I know who these people are. Its not just a joke. And it is a non profit organization. My grandma even works at walmart and they lady that established the rescue and has asked for help from walmart. This is rediculous you guys. They hardly get any donations at all because people are greedy and don't think of the animals. These people support these animals through donations. That's fine forget I asked anyone. Some of this means nothing to people. But those of you who been nice and have cared and helped thank you may god be with you

    Your immature attitude will get you nowhere in the horse world. Its a nice thought that you want to help horses. What do you think we want to do to them? I agree that your friends 'rescue' looks more like a flipping organization. I see no indication that they are taking in any actual rescues.

    They get no donations because people are CAUTIOUS about their money. If I am going to donate ANYTHING I need to know where it is going, what its for, and who it is helping. I have a family. I cannot afford to just throw money and usable tack in the mail because some rescue a few thousand miles away from me wants donations.

    Heres one question for you. Did Walmart give them anything? I doubt they did. They require a 501(c) and research before donating anything.

    You know OP, you really should get that chip off your shoulder. Maybe if you didn't have multiple OTHER posts asking for people to send you things, your post might seem more legitimate.

    And just a word of advice... If you intend on being president of anything, please focus on finishing school. Your run on sentences and poor grammar usage make you sound much younger than you claim to be especially when you are busy being snarky with people who ask LEGITIMATE questions. Just one example of this? Your signature.

    What you have written:
    racing is like your flying. Close your eyes, hang on, and sore

    The CORRECT way to write it:
    Racing is like YOU'RE flying. Close your eyes, hang on and SOAR


    Please ask the RESCUE president/founder to come to HF and provide 501 information for the organization so anyone who chooses to donate will know it is legitimately going to the rescue, etc. How are WE to know you aren't providing us with YOUR address so we can support YOUR horses?
