Awww I hope he’s taken in.
(PS, Some of y’all are terrible. lol. )
Falcon is a direct descendant of Secretariat and Northern Dancer. He is absolutely beautiful, kind, charming and has a great sense of humor.
He likes long walks beside the beach and candlelit intimate dinners.
You knew that going in, MJA!
Seventeen hands, that’s a big’un! At this time of year, even giving a horse away is difficult. Once the grass is green, the price goes up considerably. Horse owners all seem to overlook the possibility that winter will come again.
In that way, they are like the folks in hurricane country who have to run out and buy plywood to cover their windows every time a storm is brewing.
It’s winter here. But I didn’t throw my lawn mower away.
God bless the Barbie Twins.
Looks like there are a couple of legitimate interested parties. I would think a thourghbred would be worth something – or has the horse been fixed?
Some are retired race horses. – They can bee a handful! Life at a track is very, very different than a “stable” home. We had one for a while. Big beautiful horse named Frost. Several trainers tried to work with him but made no headway. He ended up at a trail ranch in Northern WI. Big horse for the guide to ride with so much energy they didn’t rotate him – he went out all the time. Great ending!

How does a horse have a “great sense of humor?”
The wife rescues horses, I just feed them.
We get them any number of ways but mostly a princess’ daddy buys her one when she is 12 and then is stuck with it when princess discovers boys.
A cheap stable bill now a days is $600 a month.
The horse arrives out of shape, usually thin, vaccinations, Coggins, out of date.
That translates to thousands of dollars just to get them fit enough for somebody to adopt.
We now do the best we can, I am retired and we can no longer do as much in this economy. You cannot give a healthy horse away.
If the stupidity about not allowing the slaughter of horses were to be lifted, the horses would be way better off.
Nobody loves horses better than we, emotion is no way to deal with real problems in the equine world.

@Boobie — “I walked into a bar one day and the bar-keep says, ‘Why the long face?’ Damn near laughed my horseshoes off. Never heard that one before. Anyway folks, did you hear the one about the old race horse? Okay, my cousin is at this glue factory, see?…”
