    5. The skins make great floor rugs and stop people poaching the really cute animals, save a baby seal wear a horse skin.

    6. people who can't afford to care for a horse can buy a dead one,stuff it,& still be able to ride,saving money on feed/agistment/vet care.

    Oh I love the false tails one!!

    Shar........I just love it when you come into these threads......lololol **)
    Watch out you don't get accused of "grilling".....or torturing or using "tone"....Heaven forbid there be 2 such terrible people on this forum....


    I'd love it if every horse was a darling and didn't NEED to go to the knackery!!
    Its those ones that give knackers a bad name.......
    The old, the sick and half dead get killed as a favour and the 'problem' horses get murdered because they are misunderstood? :}

    Yep I knew I had it all wrong.....lolololol

    lol Beagle, my Mum had a draw string purse made from a big buck kangaroos scrotum when I was a kid. It started of all furry but ended up bald and smooth over the years . She always got comments on it and you should have seen ppls faces when she told them it was made of roo nuts lol

    ok have read every one thread and agree with majority,i have a situation my mare is not a problem as such her mannerisn is fine very healthy have given me 2 beautifull babies,the problem is i have tryed for the last 3 months to get her in foal have taken her to the vets for a check and all is fine a part from alittle fluid,im now at that dreaded decision piont where enough is enough. i don't want to put her down but no one want a horse that you cant do any thing with it is just so sad cos she really is the most sweetest thing not to mention a looker. and the last thing i want to do is give her to someone and find out that she dying of starvation, if i was on 50 acres i would put her down the back and she could be a nanny but im on 5 acres. my friend has offered to stay at her place for awhile so i can have seperation and then have southdale pick her up. i totaly agree if they are dangerouse but this mare is sweet her only downside is she wont get in foal so that is the sad fact.i have taken horses to the dealer because they old and full of problems but his the hardest of all

    If she is of particular quality that warrants spending money to investigate her "fluid" and lack of breeding I would do that.

    Breeding mares that have any number of problems has advanced so much in the last few years.....a little fluid as you mentioned might be able to be overcome with just some drug therapy.....
    But you would need to have your mare assessed by a specialised person at a facility where they can really manage her through a cycle and breeding and do everything needed post service to hopefully get a result.

    If her lack of breeding potential and space to put her means you need to re-evaluate keeping her, then that is a decision only you can make.
    Horses are sent away for less reason than that......and lots of very individual personal reasons are the catalyst for those decisions.

    I would rather send my old dear to God rather than have her be cared for in a manner that she has never experienced feed, no shelter, no love. THAT is not what they sign on for.......I think our last and most intense responsibility to our special friends is to send them home with dignity!
