    So you don't think feeding and caring for a disabled OTTB horse for 12 years counts as saving a horse, but flipping thousands of them into questionable homes for a profit does?

    And I've put Ms....

    Oh good grief. I bought my OTTBs from very reputable track people. I was saving them because I provided a way for the good people in racing to rehome their horses without having to pay for their...

    Yes, I'm guessing that a McMansion with a Lexus in the driveway might have had a bad impact on donations ;)

    One theory is that it is stashed away somewhere for when the scam finally implodes. There have apparently been trips to Disney. It seems they may have waited a little too long or gotten a little too...

    Well I've saved 5 OTTBs myself. You seem to think that AC4H was doing some kind of public service. Anyone who goes to the track and buys an OTTB is "actively involved in a rescue movement that...

    Maybe it could be someone who saves horses without leaving them for who knows how long, in a concrete barn in 90 degree heat with no food or water. And this is not the first time I've heard these...

    Strangles Central and no steps taken to even try and prevent it. And your horse was one of the lucky ones. I don't believe in horse slaughter but I do believe there are worse fates for horses. The...

    Sadly, I think this is true. In this wreck of an economy, it may be the only way left to make money from horses. The price of grain is so high that it is all I can do to take care of my 7 horses.

    I first ran afoul of the so charming Ms. Christy when I asked how she managed to make a living. I was accused of having an agenda and promptly banned from Mr. Brown's forum.

    I am very skeptical about how many horses were actually saved. Regular rescues have trouble adopting out even a few horses and this place was apparently finding thousands of "good homes". Some horses...

    The real problem is they are dealing in horseflesh behind a rescue facade. And if you have a problem with that, they will threaten and demonize and they are crass and unprofessional. The horses...

    I don't think that is established at all. Having to raise $9000 per month to pay a mortgage before you even begin to care for the horses is a very poor business plan.

    I call it irresponsible to borrow 1.7 million dollars to run a retirement farm or rescue or whatever you want to call it. That is just plain foolish IMO.
