Photo has nothing to do with this post, just I thought this neighboring Gypsy was gorgeous.
ON to the post of which I'm sure will bring a few arguments or controversy, just because we haven't done it in awhile, BUT is it me or have I been noticing an influx of elderly horses that for one reason or another suddenly need a new home because of the "economy". My question is this, "Why always the horse in his/her late 20's is in sudden need of a forever home?" It's something I've noticed a lot lately on the net in various places. I know this is really nothing new, but it makes me question how we value our horses. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the economy, however, sometimes, I wonder if it's just because one cannot be bothered with the increased care and cost and time of the horse that no longer can hold it's job for that person or is it really a matter of , "OMG! I cannot afford any horse young or old right now!" What do you think?
