Re: [RC] Auburn-horrible craigslister - Lynne Glazer

D'Arcy, responsible people don't give potential responders TWO DAYS though. The price of hay has been rising for a while. Do you suppose they attempted to sell their animals before now? And why did they BREED them? I'll just guess. The stallion is a stud colt that is the offspring of one of the mares, and they were all in together. ;-)

Within the last couple of days on the Fuglyhorse blog, there was a person who tried to do this with two warmblood mares, 18 yrs old or so, for $600 for the pair to anyone who would come pick them up. With no notice, just like this. in Cave Creek, not exactly the poor side of Phoenix. It's just irresponsible, and people like this should own motorcycles, not horses. That way they can park them in their garage when they can't afford to use them.

Unfortunately, Lynne, this is the tip of the iceberg, here in CA. With the
cost of feed going from 8.50 for a bale of alfalfa to now $28.00 (in some
places) there will be far too many ads like this in the near future. I have
received numerous calls from rescue groups to see if I have any room. With
my place for sale I am not taking in any new rescues. My heart goes out to
all of these horses.
