I have my mustang gelding to feed as it is, but I wish I could afford to get the horse from the bulletin board. The add says that if no one takes him, they'll have him put down. I saw that and started bawling. I went on the site to look for a puppy and there he was again. This time with 4 pics. He's beautiful and I'd hate to see that happen to him, but I just can't afford to get him.
I'm not sure if you'll be able to find under this link, but here he is. http://www.thebulletinboard.com/Search.aspx?category=15000&search=free
I can't help it. I'm a sucker for an animal that needs a good home where it will be loved for the rest of it's life.
Here in Nevada we are having a terrible problem with this. Unfortunately this area has been hit very hard by the economy, which so many of you can identify with. Folks that had good jobs a few years ago when they got their animals are now hurting so badly they can't afford to feed them. The horse rescues are full and the situation is getting worse! I have seen pictures of horribly malnourished animals on CL and I'm afraid I feel like it would be better for the poor animals to be put down than to have to die slowly of starvation. It is so sad but it isn't going to go away either. Glad you have accepted that taking this horse would not be a great thing for you, your family or the other animals.

WHY WE SHOOT DEER
Why we shoot deer in the wild. (A letter from someone who wants to remain anonymous, who farms, writes well and actually tried this)
<snippity do dah>
I finally managed to crawl under the truck and the deer went away.So now I know why when people go deer hunting they bring a rifle with a scope......to sort of even the odds!!
All these events are true so help me God... An Educated Farmer
I am nowhere near caught up but I HAD to pause here to run to the bathroom because I was truly laughing so hard.... to need to do so. If'n you know what I mean. OMG.
...continuing to try to catch up.... now that I am empty.... and in new undies.....
I'm laughing almost as hard at your descriptive post as I did at the story when I first read it!
