I'm a little hesitant about posting this, a little worried about the response I'll get. But it seems like you all are very nice, level-headed people that won't start any arguments and will focuse on the welfare of the horses. If there is a flare up of any kind, I will delete this thread. Thank you. These horses are located on a feedlot in Yakima, Washington. There is a lady that works with the feedlot owner to try and get permission to place horses before they get shipped to slaughter. This handful of horses have until 8:00 am, Monday 24, 2007. These are all nice horses that deserve a chance. Horses rescued from this lot have gone on to be show winners and the best buddies you could ask for. Many people are dumping their horses before winter, not wanting to pay the feed bills. Many of these horses are perfectly healthy. Some may have a few minor ailments, and others may need special care. But they all deserve a chance and that is why I'm posting this. If you are willing and able to adopt, please do so immeadiately! If you are hesitant about the distance, don't be! We have adopters up and down the western states, and even one in New York. So it is do-able. If you are not able to help that way would you be able to donate? If so please send (no amount is too small!) your donations to: firstname.lastname@example.org What you'll need to do if one of these strikes your fancy: Submit an adoption application! Columbia Basin Equine Rescue Email the placement specialist! I will post these with the horses, see bottom reply. Tell them you are willing to adopt "_____" outright and to please put a rush on your adoption application. If you can't adopt outright, we *may* be able to help raise money for either the bail (adoption fee) or quarantine. But not both. If you are financially able, please don't ask for help. These are not "free" horses. Quarantine is usually 30 days, costing about $9.00 a day. They will be picked up from the lot and taken to either Sam's or Deb's place. This will give you time to arrange transport also. The placement specialist will tell you what to do from then on. But you will have to pay for the horse after you are approved. You can find the paypal link on their pages. For simplicity purposes I will post a picture and the description of the horses below. THANK YOU! Just by looking at this it shows you care :cutekiss: .......... Original post put back by Moderator. April'sDanes- Please do not delete the entire contents of your original post. It will not make the subsequent 8 pages of replies go away. And honestly, it just draws more attention to a thread that you clearly would like it not to have.
