    Default Foster Homes Desperately Needed for Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society (TX)

    BEHS has been contacted with a request for assistance with a seizure of
    several horses. The herd includes at least one stallion, mares who are
    likely pregnant, and younger horses. They have also been requested to
    assist with a second seizure and another agency has requested our assistance with several horses they've already seized.

    BEHS has not yet committed to either of the seizures - they must first
    determine whether they have the resources to assist. Currently, the rescue has the manpower to perform the actual seizure but will need foster homes lined up for each horse after the seizure. The rescue is seeking foster
    homes primarily in Texas but will consider those in Arkansas and those on the LA and OK borders closest to Texas. Please email Jenn at
    jenn@bluebonnetequine.org if you can help with foster. You can download a
    fostering application at http://www.bluebonnetequine.org/help/foster.htm

    And thank you!!

    One of the things I admire most about Jenn and Bluebonnet is that she's realistic with what she can and can't do. It's difficult but critical.

    I hope some viable fosters can be found.

    Thanks, Wendi.

    And thanks poltroon - it is hard to say no, and hard to walk away. I understand how people get in over their head - you think, I'll just squeeze these in and it'll be ok. But really, I cannot commit to taking these guys in until I know they have places to go...

    And of course, the cost of these additional horses will be substantial.

    I'll post on my FB and see if any of the stables bite down here. I know my barn won't foster any though we do have the facilities and experience for the stud. I'll ask!

    This morning's update - I've got homes lined up for most of the horses, just need 2-3 more foster spaces....

    Some days the need feels a little overwhelming!
