Oh my god. It's like I died and went to TB heaven. I LOVE Company Approval. I wish I could have him for my very own to make loffly babies. Except that I don't know anything about breeding. Or owning a stallion. Oh and I can't afford ANY horse right now. Details, details.
Hey, it looks like Company Approval used to stand at Xanthus Farm in Pennsylvania. Do you think they might be interested in him or his babies? I wish I could do something, I just don't have any funds for any horse. I hate to feel so helpless.
Her conversations include a "just do it" followed by "why not" & "oh just go ahead" with a "you only live once" sometimes thrown in. And the final one is "well we just won't tell your father".
My all time favorite was "I'll just turn him out & see how long until he notices". This is when I was 11 & we bought a pony while dear dad was at work. She then rationalized it to me (she was teaching me young) with "he's small, he poops small & he only eats a handful of grain". I love my mom.
Good luck shopping to anybody that goes. There are some good looking horses.
I really like Carrot Top (Western Playboy) pedigree -the sire line is the same as the famous xx sporthorse sire sacramento song?). And she also comes from the mare family of Palace music --the sire of Cigar (take a look at Come hither look) with the grand little current thrown in there.
(and she has Pretense who has the same mare line as Touch of class)
Has a donation fund been created that could be applied towards the most "at risk"? I can't take a horse, but can contribute an amount- would others also be willing to contribute a donation- perhaps the ILEHC is accepting donations? Anyone know?
Thanks, I sent an email to them and will be donating. Hope others do to and that it will help! FYI, I've included a post on my blog, and in my facebook account and will update it with this donation contact information. I bet others have done so too, but just an idea for those who haven't! Spreading the word and including the donation contact information to all of your contacts may help- I sure hope so!
There are probably many who would be willing like me to contribute an amount to go towards this, even if they can't buy or foster a horse. I hope that I hear back from ILEHC about my donation.
This place is just up the road a ways from me, but alas, I cannot take on another horse (was lucky enough to be able to sell one to a great home). I have, however, posted this all over my facebook and myspace pages, hoping that some of my horsey friends will take a look. He's to hoping they all get a 2nd chance!!!
I was just forwarded this by a friend. Apparently there are many mares in foal. The link will take you to all of the information. It is this Saturday, December 6th in MT. Vernon WI. This is close to Madison WI.
I don't know anything more than what I have read, sorry.
