I have yet to hear of a gelding clinic in PA. I would gladly recommend a few people to it! I feel the same, but with a herd of 4 and a possibility of moving now, i don't need another horse....(keep telling yourself that
). I hate going on craigslist and seeing horses free to good home, and most have problems because they weren't handled or used much.
Actually my cousin and a friend of mine, both have TWH mares free to good homes, the one my cousin has is 12, cataract in her right eye, and difficult to ride, and nasty with other horses, and knows no boundaries.
The one my friend has is a 3yo virtually untouched, but lovable and affectionate, it was his sisters but she got pregnant and has no time for her now. She would make a lovely trial horse. From what i know she was a rescue. I'd be glad to take them in, but i can't, i can't possibly be allowed any more horses on the property, along with 30 head of beef grazing too. I do hope they go to good homes. Its just sad.
Not only that i'm rather infuriated with another cousin of mine who has 7 horses on 1 acre of ground, i can only imagine what is going to happen to those poor creatures in the winter, and all of them were free to good home!!
Many of which have serious training issues and should see a professional. But like you said we have no control over what others do, and we can't save them all (even though it would be great) <sigh>
