***#974 - Don't want to write a book but just have to share: So, when I get to this horse, woman is standing there and asks me if I'm the rescue, so I say "Yes". She says "this horse needs rescuing" and then she starts telling me about him. So, I ask "Is he your horse?" and she says "Yes" -- that conversation just said it all--"Norbert" is a dark bay gelding, about 15.2 hh, Mom told me he was 13 and Frank announced him as a smooth-mouth. Guessing he's probably late teens, needs about 200 lbs or more. Was telling me he was a "Polish Warmblood", has a "21" branded on his right hindquarter and possibly a breed brand on left stifle -- too much hair to read. The Story: "someone gave horse to daughter about a year ago", didn't ask mom first, kid rode him, lost interest, so I guess Mom didn't make sure kid was feeding him.

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE OF DEALING WITH THE QUARANTINE OR UNCERTAINTIES OF PURCHASING A DIRECT FROM PEN HORSE, CONSIDER ADOPTING A HORSE FROM A RESCUE. THEY HAVE BEEN QUARANTINED, HAVE BEEN HEALTH CHECKED AND EVALUATED AND EVEN TRAINED UNDER SADDLE. THAT OPENS A SPACE FOR THE RESCUE-ORG. TO SAVE ANOTHER.

THE ANIMAL RESCUE SITE CONTEST:
Wow, it's nice to see a smaller list tonight. Two questions: why didn't Norbert's owner place him directly with a rescue, instead of taking him to an auction in the off chance he would be picked up by a rescue?
Second question: was the grey mare, 926, ridden or led through?
I hope someone can take in that poor mama that needs to have her baby! I wish I could, but we don't have the facilities. Just when she should be "nesting," she's being shipped to an auction house.
Thank Edie - she uploaded lisa's photos to the page and I added lisa's descriptions.
Fingers crossed for a smooth coordinated effort this week. YIKES - I better get to bed :)
no - i'm going to bed - and I can't upload photos anyway to FB - for some reason
the new page this week was created to help the admins of the different facebook groups communicate in a central place - it's a temporary fix - until a webpage can be developed.
because it's a "page" folks joined :)
the normal pages and groups are posting the descriptions and photos as they normally do
