Just seeing if anyone else is out and about looking at stallions to breed to for next year?
I am looking for my Diesel Only x Sudden Impulse mare, though I'm not sure if we'll breed or invest in training for her while I finish school. We ended up selling our 2016 appaloosa colt to a hunter farm, so now I'm foal-less again. This time looking to get a top quality APHA western riding and trail horse. Been searching high and low for homozygous studs and DR.
How about anyone else?
DISCLAIMER: I know how a lot of you feel about kill pens and kill buyers and the people who buy from them, but what is done is done.
So. On Saturday, I was contacted by the sweet lady that helped me get Calypso, with a photo and a plea: a young mare that had a home offer and full bail had abruptly lost the home offer, with only 20 minutes until then deadline. Could I do anything?
I am a TOTAL SUCKER. I contacted the woman who quarantined and hauled Calypso, and said sure, fine, I would be the home offer and pay them last remaining bit. ($200, plus 30 for a health paper) I looked at the pictures and video, and despite being dark and blurry, nothing horrible jumped out at me--she walked, trotted and cantered (briefly ) under saddle, seemed sound, although hard to tell. Whatever, no big deal.
My original plan was to get her into quarantine, and then have them woman quarantining her rehome her. But, then she sent some photos.
Nurse mares, why we need them, and how to stop the production of nurse mare foals: A rebuttal to Last Chance Corral
From above link.
And I have already urged many donors to this organization as well as others to truly investigate what they are donating to. The definition of fraud is “wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial and personal gain” and fraud is what this organization is committing. Their taxes speak volumes into where the money they are raising actually goes. The nursemare foals with which they are “rescuing” are actually bought from a provider that was neither killing the foals nor neglecting them.
