    That is what horse traders and trainers of all kinds have done all their lives, upgrade horses, as many as possible, as many as there is a market for.

    So, now they call themselves a rescue?
    Good, just as some others out there, that are really horse traders playing with donated money, as "rescues", to get to work with horses.

    Then there are the REAL rescues, those that work with animal control and the sheriff's department to help abused and mistreated horses, that are a whole 'nuther world, not horse traders/trainers/mock rescues.

    Welcome any and all that can train and place horses in good hands, that is all any horse professional wants for any and all the horses that cross their paths.

    I think what they are doing is posting these things on this BB, so that the nuts here will go and harass the owners.

    I doubt they're doing it to help advertise these horses in the hope they'll stay out of the slaughterhouse.

    In other words, they are instigating. And if a horse dies because of it - that's ok as long as it's for "the cause".

    They have more in common with Mr. Sappington than they think.

    Considering the source of this thread, I think you are right.

    No - the guy states emphatically he is NOT a charity.

    He is advertising a for profit business - he weeds through the horses he picks up at auction and sells those he thinks there is a market for.

    A business transaction; not a charitable one.

    No sale? On to the plant they go.

    The superior posters have arrived. Chiding and ridiculing all the way.

    I see him doing what all brokers are doing, he just added a "friendly" touch.

    So you'd prefer if he didn't offer the horses for sale and just sent them all to slaughter.

    Ok. Gotcha.

    I'm not sure I'd call it "superior". From the stuff I've been reading on the other thread I'd more likely go with "logical".

    I think you nailed it, he has to be an ogre, no way around it, of course, from the usual posters.

    No, I just inferred that he's doing business as usual for a broker with pretty wrapping.

    How the hell did you get

    Ron Andio just recently got fined for something he did while hauling to Canada. Can't recall the details though.

    The one and only horse he has posted so far is set at a good price.

    If he is open to allowing individuals to come to his farm to purchase horses, more power to him.

    There are some KB's around here who won't let you within eyesight of their property, which yes, is thanks to nut cases who have nothing better to than to harass them, even if they live clear across the country. (But that's another story).

    So far it's looking like he is not going to use a "middle-man" i.e. the Sheidys of the world.

    And you all may remember the thread we had on here of the Ramey horses that were being advertised by his girlfriend via you tube.
    Didn't one of those horses find a home with a COTHer?

    Again, more power to them.

    So? Who gives a damn. He can put pretty bows in their forelocks, too.

    The guy isn't lying and he isn't misrepresenting himself as a nonprofit. This is a standard horse sale.

    It's one less horse in a kill chute. One less horse in long distance transport.

    I thought that's what all the anti slaughter activists wanted.

    If this was a nonprofit, they'd be depending on donations from a public still exhausted over an economic collapse. Those nonprofits did not save those horses from the KB.
    The KB is giving a few a decent chance at life.

    Don't deny them that chance by trashing his efforts.
