I am happy to give a home to one animal or a mare and foal. However,
I cannot take financial responsibility for the costs of caring for a sick animal.
I re home animals from time to time, but I do not generally sell to my Spanish neighbors as I find them very heavy handed with equines
I have access to three (3)sanctuary/refuges in Malaga Province. Albert

Hi Albert

I would just like to say it is great that our silent friends have a voice in a person like you. I too have rescued many horses, nursed them back to health, both physically and mentally, and found fabulous new homes for many of them. Each one takes a little of your heart with them when they go.

But please don´t be quick to paint everyone with the same brush. One beautiful old mare who ´appeared´ after a great fire in our valley, hobbled and with bad infections in both eyes, came back to health (turned out to be a fabulously schooled mare who also jumped in competition years before!) I re-homed and she has spent the last 4 years now living with a Spanish family who have a grown daughter with a permanent mental age of around 10. Maggie, the horse, is not ridden, but every day she is brushed to an inch of her life, fed carrots, and stands patiently whilst the girl climbs onto her back just to sit a while and hug her around the neck! She is in a regularly cleaned paddock with a shelter, fresh water and all the hay she can eat. This year she turned 25. The worst thing she suffers is sometimes the hugs are too tight!

We all deserve a chance.

Friends?

PostSubject: Part 2 - but really part 1 about Maggie the rescue   Wed May 27, 2009 10:00 pm

It was late, brain not engaged. I really should have started at the beginning!

Maggie originally went to an English couple after I cured her eyes, feed her up and started her in light work again. They had one horse and needed a companion and an occasional ride. A year later Maggie was left tied up in my yard whilst I was out. The wife at least telephoned me to tell me that´s what she had done! Somewhat a shadow of the horse that had left me greeted me on my return. The couple were divorcing and she was first on the hit list! Strangely enough, even though they had enjoyed a year of riding her and her being good company for their other horse, the other horse was kept for nearly a year more (without company again)! The other horse, though lovely was not a patch on Maggie in character and training!

So there are good and bad no matter the colour or creed unfortunately.
