What's To Happen To Them.........
If anything was to happen to me? I'm not sure if many of us or any of us has put any thought into what was to happen to your horses if something was to happen to you. It's not something I've thought about until recently. I cannot remember which month it was, but within this past year, A couple and their grandkids died of carbon monoxide poisoning in their camper/trailer while at a horse show. This couple bred and raised Clydesdales and were at a show, I believe, when this happened. I know in the end, the horses, and there were a lot of them, were auctioned off. If something was to happen to me, I could count on Steve to feed them, but when it comes to knowing they're ill or need trimming or need to gain weight rather than lose, or even if they were sore or injured, he himself admits, he would not know it. So we discussed this the other night and I told Steve what I would want him to do, unless for some reason, Zoe, would want the responsibility, which I doubt, I would want them to go to a rescue, but not just any rescue. One inparticular, in this area. It is called the Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation . They take great care of their rescues and have strict rules for adoption and follow-up for at least five years. That is my plan, if something was to happen to me. What's yours?
