OMG just WHAT is wrong with people?!?! Thank you Arlene, hopefully people will stop supporting irresponsible breeders like this.

Here is the short of it:
The owner at a horse farm outside of Paonia had contacted Spirit Wind Horse Rescue to take 23 horses that could no longer be properly cared for. After 14 horses were removed and placed at foster homes, the owner would not allow the remaining nine to leave including this horse. Spirit Wind is hopeful the owner will have a change of heart and allow the other horses to be taken for adoption. It is estimated around 30 to 35 horses remain in the large herd

“She had a horse dead in her pasture. We weren’t able to determine the cause of death. There was speculation on how it died, but there was no autopsy done.”

SHOCKED!!!!


This is a prime example of what I've been saying over and over again on this board, if one does not have the financials, care and game plan for the offspring and are not prepared to keep the offspring if sales hit rock bottom then dont' &*^&%%* breed!!!!! PERIOD!!!!

....and DON'T hoard horses.......that is a sickness!!


This makes me very angry!!!


I hope all the horses find good homes. God Bless the rescue.

There, but for the Grace of God, goes every horse owner without unlimited finances who ever tried to keep up with showing an exceptional horse to reach his potential, chase the National Championship title, and just couldn't keep their head on straight when it came to realistically looking at expenses.

Not defending her by any means, but I can so easily see how this happened. It's a graphic warning to those of us who chase the dream on a shoestring budget.

I can't easily see how this happened unless the person responsible for the horses' care was mentally ill to start with.
I've known plenty of people who "chased the dream" on a shoestring budget and did NOT allow their other horses to become emaciated.

This kind of behavior has been seen time and time again from people who regard horses as no more than a way to advance their status in society.

I totaly agree. Also when someone offers a big price for that "one in a Million" horse. Sell it! That money will buy alot of hay for those poor guys left at home. I've seen this one time too many.

I've been "chasing the Dream" for a few years, I gave away several horses ( to WONDERFUL Homes ) this year so that I can afford the dream...I have a question... if she has Eden C on lease, isn't she getting $ from it ???
