    I am not in the market for a horse right now. And my trainer does not believe in buying off a video for her amateur and junior clients. If that was all I could afford she would work with the horse if...

    Well I am not sure if she is ignorant or if she is on to a great thing! That is why I started the post. The prices in Europe are really good for what you are getting even if it is green. I am...

    this is really pi%ss%ing me off. seeing all these mares and foals at the last stop weigh station in Texas ready to be shipped to Mexico for slaughter. one pony mare gave birth at the weigh station....

    this is what I am worried about! My sister's horse looks lovely but I am surprised that she was so brave to buy a horse that she has never seen before. I am not sure that I am brave enough to do...

    So then my sister's quote is spot on!
  9. I have no problem with this! If the horse is...

    I have no problem with this! If the horse is unsound and the owner is going to be miserable, and does not have the means to support 2 horses, then euthanasia is an option for me. Not sure that I can...

    this is the best post ever! and I am vehemently against people who send their horses to auctions for the mere fact they are too cheap to put the horse down and want a few bucks for their next horse....
  11. I never threw out name calling. I am describing...

    I never threw out name calling. I am describing people who send their old horses for slaughter instead of giving them a dignified end with a veterinarian by the horses’s side to ensure it has the...

    I do not see how it is disrespectful to give an opinion on a message board that anyone who sends their old horse to a slaughter plant is a cold person. that is not disrespecting your mother. She did...

    Thanks for your reply. I see the riders butts glued to the saddle keeping those hind ends underneath the horse with soft hands but never allowing horse to waver between the shoot created by the...

    Well how do they do it at the auction? What is the prep? It seems like the perfect deal to get a lovely horse this cheap. But something is backing me off from this idea!

    yeah that trip was crazy! but I was determined to get a horse! and I rented a car which was supposed to be a Nissan sentra and they gave me a candy apple red mustang convertible which was bad on gas!...
  16. I have no idea who she is using. This is the...

    I have no idea who she is using. This is the price she told me. I don't think she is getting the horse vetted because she bought it at an auction and I believe it includes quarantine.
    I still think...

    Vandenbrink: I think I tried a gray horse at your barn in 2007. you sound familiar.

    I agree with you! I absolutely do not understand how a little bit of money makes it worth putting a horse you cared for thru all that suffering. the long ride to Mexico. the torturous death. I...

    This is the thought that runs thru my mind a lot. Is it better to keep an unsound horse and have the owner be basically miserable because they have all the responsibilities of horse ownership and not...

    very interesting! thank you everyone for all your informative replies. If I ever in the future decide to pursue this method of buying I need to be informed of all the risks. I am not sure my sister...

    I work a full time job! I don't have time to have more than 2 horse and right now the one I have is taking a lot of time. I am in the process of learning a lot of things. I finally have access to the...

    well I am impressed too! I thought importing was at least 8K. but that is what she told me, so I guess that is the cost!
    and I do know that green costs money too! I paid $50 bucks a pro ride. this...
