I appreciate what she's doing. It's nice to know someone is out there keeping an eye on the pens.
I watched one of the videos and there WERE some nice horses in the lot, which most of us know there are. Unfortunately way too many heading that direction. I have banned myself from sales, I'd take too many home. Most of the horses I've owned have either been given to me, been in rough situations, or like Rick purchased for dirt cheap before he was sent "off". (No I wasn't suckered, my vet told me about the situation).
I honestly don't know what's better in some cases. Spending a fortune getting a lame or seriously emaciated horse back into condition, or spending the same money on two horses that are looking good and just haven't been given a chance. I want to help them all, but sadly that isn't a possibility.
Yep, a bunch of people are cynics. But it's because they've been burned, read about, or see local "organizations" run amok or take advantage of good people. Not saying that is the case here! Hope they get to connect with some locals and get the word out. Good luck! I'd have been in the middle of those nice Appys!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
