Rescuing A Horse?
What are the pros and cons in rescuing and/or adopting a horse?
I was thinking, next year, after I sell my boy Wrangler, that I would like to adopt a horse. I am looking for a younger horse, like between 1-4, but would prefer a horse 2-3 years of age.
I have found a couple of rescues in Alberta, Canada (I live in Saskatchewan) that I will travel to, and even found a few horses I am interested in. Now, if they are still there when I am ready to adopt, I will look at them first.
But, until spring, I am trying to get as much info as possible in rescuing a horse and where to adopt.
I was thinking either adopting from a horse rescue farm (where they outbid eat buyers and buy from feedlots), getting a PMU foal, or adopting a mustang (although I cannot find ANYWHERE to adopt a mustang in Canada)
These are the places I have found so far:
Paradise Stables in Saskatchewan
Bear Valley Rescue in Alberta
Dare 2 Dream Rescue in Alberta
I am really leaning to go to Dare 2 Dream and I love some of the rescues there.
Do any of you know good places to look to adopt or rescue a horse. I can travel in Saskatchewan and some places in Alberta.
And any info you have on rescuing or adopting, please share!
