Say What????$23.00 in feed per horse per day??? I don't know why anyone would exaggerate the cost of feeding these horses, unless (of course) someone has the audacity to be making money under the guise of a "rescue/shelter". We have 16 head of horses that must be fed out of our back pocket...we have no pasture to supplement their diet. You could board a horse in a total-care facility for alot less than $23.00 per day. I am sorry, but now there are some of us that question your motives. Please feel free to explain if you can.
more coffee please

I am not a vet nor have I ever owned horses so feel free to enlighten me on this subject.

If these horses have been malnourished and are underweight wouldn't they be needing a higher quality of feed to help them to gain weight and bring their bodies back up physically? I would think higher quality food (in other words more nutrients and vitamins in the feed) would be higher priced. At least for a while they would be needing more vitamins and such which usually translates into higher prices.

As I said before I know NOTHING about the care of horses I just know they are a beautiful animal that I love to look at and admire (from a distance their size tends to make me a little nervous.)

we are not accusing anyone of anything, we just wonder why these rescued horses are so darn expensive. We attended an adoption/auction for a local equine rescue a few years back and we were astonished to find that they were asking more money for their "adoptable" horses than any of us were asking for our registered stock. I am thankful that these volunteers are saving equine lives. It just seems as if somebody somewhere has priced these animals at an unaffordable cost to the average joe.
