Both horses look so much better & happier,glad they are in a much better place now. & yes, we may make plans for after we are gone, but sometimes things happen & they aren't followed. All we can do is try & let as many people know as we can while we can still be heard. Good luck to you.

Very nice progress with these horses! They look so much better!

sierrams, when I was reading through your posts, I really had no idea what point you were making. Yes, it's a sad that these horses ended up like this. To me, it sounds like people did try to care for these horses, but were overwhelmed. That's a lot of horses to care for, especially if the person didn't even like horses. It's a lesson to all of us that we should plan for our dependents' cares after we pass, knowing that we cannot place that responsibility on the unwilling. Other than that, what is there to say?

It's unfortunate that a "call to arms" wasn't sent out across the internet to place the horses faster. Are there still horses that need homes at this farm?

OP- I hope that everything continues to go well with these two. They are beautiful!

There is one APHA stallion (who should be gelded/the owner is saving up to have gelded) left in the barn and five or six older or un-sound brood mares that are being taken care of over at her farm. Really the only one who needs a home asap is the last stallion, however I have absolutely no room for a fourth stallion. Now that he is the last horse on the farm she will be making a small 6 panel "pen" off from a stall so that he can at least step outside. I told her if he is still around in the summer when this colt is gelded and after my foals are born, I will take him. I bet he is very lonely over there :(

What nice projects you have. I am glad they are now in a good loving environment. Are you considering gelding the second horse? I think he would also be a good gelding, personally.
