Thank you for the help everyone. I am taking notes!

Another thought came to mind today. Have any of you ever put a 2x4 balanced on a couple of cinder blocks? Ever stood in the middle of that board as a kid and bounced up and down on it? Then, did you move the cinder blocks inwards and notice that the shorter the distance between the blocks there was, the less the middle gave, it had more support?

Can this be applied to a horses' back? A shorter horse back is stronger compared to a long back? I'm trying to pick out a horse breed I would like if I can't find a really gentle mustang to adopt. Trying to get a 2nd and 3d option in there. Of course, I'm looking for one with a good temperament, that's not need of saying. But what does need saying is that I want one strong enough that when I get on its back I don't feel guilty because it's having to haul my fat bum! >.< I don't want to feel like I'm hurting the poor animal! Draft animals look strong. They look like they'd be harder for me to break riding them a lot. But I don't know enough yet to know up from down. More homework! >.<

I love your idea about donating the hay to people who would otherwise have to rehome their animals. If this is something that you aren't able to figure out, what about donating the excess hay to rescues? I am also in OK and know of a few rescues in the area that are always watching their pennies. Another contact would be Red Earth Feed and Tack in OKC, after all natural disasters in OK they seem to donate resources and feed to horse/people that were affected by the storms.

I personally don't own any hay, at all. It's my dad who's got a ton of it. And I can't speak for him but I know he's a good man, has always helped his neighbors in need and has taught me to do the same. It's me that's wanting to see an organization like this up and running. Talking to my geeky husband about what it would take to build a web site to get it going. And thank you, I'm glad to hear about Red Earth.

Please tell me if you can watch this video on YouTube and see when you get to the end of it. Because I watched it and now I'm a mess. These people love horses? I don't think so. There is no love in how these horses are treated. These are people using horses for financial gain, again. What do we have to do to get this kind of thing to stop? How many letters do I have to write to the US senate? What else can we do? I'm a freaking mess. I can barley see though my tears. As a people, haven't we come out of the dark ages yet? Geesh.
