Upset at the horse world today!
I guess this is just a bit of a rant. As some may know, I took a mare on loan last year, told not in foal, but was.
Then we recently took on rescue in the last month, 3 yrs old, in foal. We are building her up, giving her the feed and care she needs, and hopefully helping her through her foaling.
Today I took a friend to look at a mare from a rescue centre, she was in a bad state, but was 3 yrs old and had been born there. My friend is taking her on, and she will turn out to be a lovely mare. Its seems even the rescues arent really looking after them!
I know someone who has a mare in foal, who will not give her up, no matter how much we try, who will foal in a bog! All because she promised a friend she could have her, but she can only visit her 3 times a week! What are you to do? Foal stands no chance!
I despair at the situation. Why dont people just geld when needed to stop unwanted breeding? Are people really that stupid?
Im frustrated, and wish I could save more, as it seems to be such a huge problem. Why dont people love and look after horses as they are meant to be!?!? The world is wrong....so so woring :(
