you can ask for help, and work it out with the various individuals, but you can't ask for money. The forum does not allow solicitation of donations/funds , for any charity (with very rare cases where we've allowed posts in the case of natural disasters).

there is no "help needed" section that I am aware of.

Where are they staying at right now? Who came and picked up the horses and the people from the wreck scene?

I searched for information on this wreck and found nothing about it, which is odd, because usually there are tons of stories on the news, and also these get to circulating when a horse trailer is wrecked, between all my horse friends.

What town was this near and can you link to story about it?

That would help to pinpoint areas in which some of us may know horse people.

I've seen people post ads on craigslist in my area looking for transportation. Perhaps you could try a couple of ads in the bigger cities along the way and see if you get a response.

Happened around Las Cruces around 6 am on the morning of June 6th off I-10. They are in Fairacres. Another blessing was where it happened (I think near Deming) was close to Fairacres, Her mothers ex boyfriend lives there.

He has not offed to help, her grandma even asked him if she gave someone some fuel money if she knew someone who would bring them here (Alabama) and he said no.

I definitely not asking for money, heck I'm rare to ask for help. Just never been in a situation like this before. Just non of our families have disposable money. I guess I could ask for a little hear and there for help, but goes back to the I just hate asking for money.

To be 100% honest here we (me her and her grandma) have about $1000 to spend on it, Maybe someone here will know someone who would do it for that.

To help with areas I'm in Fairhope/Foley Alabama, on the Gulf Coast, I live off 181 within 15 miles of I-10. We are directly across Mobile AL to our West and Pensacola FL to the East

Here is a pic of what was the truck and trailer and the 2 horses in Needles CA taken the day before the accident.

Here is the Uship listing I made
Cost to Ship a 2 Horses, Emergency Situation Ship to Foley

Thanks again for all the suggestions
