Been awhile, doesn't seem like it.

Foal growing like a bad weed, mama is Sweet, such a good mother!
Attempting to get the grey mare bred. "Attempting" is the correct word. We shall see but I do think Mr. Buddy eventually got the job done - and has his marks to prove it!

On the grain, find the senior feed is more a feed mixed for medium to higher performance horses as well as senior. The rice bran, beet pulp and the yeast culture, plus all the other goodies we used to add by ourselves makes for a good feed, albeit one that must be watched for molding. Not big gobs but where not every bit was mixed it will mold, especially in these high heats or if the sack gets exposed to any water, ie rain. The super added is about $800 a ton while the other is about $420 a ton. Huge increase in price over the years.

And in this all-scooped together blog type post: The Kaufman Kill Pen is now requiring 60% paid up front by a home willing to take the horse/pony/mule, etc - up from 50% as funds are increasingly hard to obtain - ie donations. Also since it is a private webpage they can AND ARE removing posts pointing out their doubling of the price, selling horses with broken knees for $1000 etc and banning them. One way to stop their nay sayers.

Hopefully all the horse people are safe in the West Coast fires.

Quickie this morning

From the Kaufman Kill Pen Facebook page

This page was set up to save horses from slaughter.

FALSE. The entire page was set up to make Mike McBarron bucko's of money. Saving horses lives incidental IMO

Animal Rights people have shot themselves in the foot or perhaps not, might be this is what is wanted. Fewer and fewer dollars coming in donations, more and more wising up to conditions of horses.

Here in Lubbock, couple individuals have taken it upon themselves to be the Craigslist moderators removing posts by Flagging as Violations of Policies. Which is not true. In fact, Craigslist making every effort to stay away from this group. Everyone needs to call them when they try this. One party emailed me, thus in writing folks, how post was Flagged for Violation offering pigs for sale.

Course I fought back and one of these AR's, in email so in writing, said No Sales of Animals, opposite true in Terms in CL policy, No breeding, CL has no reference anywhere to breeding. For awhile at least, they will lay low.

Kaufman Kill Pen upset horses been moving slow
Today there are Arabian mare with filly foal about 2 months old, 2 older chestnut mares in bad shape, one bay mare prime of life and one 2 year old chestnut filly.

Leading Arabian rescuer stated, Everyone is full up with more horses than they can/probably should have; the money has dried up because all people tapped have none left/willing to give to save; so time has come where we can do what we can do, one day at a time, but our efforts are about done.

Urged to let McBarron know the facts. By the way he wants more, double +, what a private seller is asking/trying to get. $775 for the bay mare.

There is no room for these horses in the show ring, there is no demand for riding horses, there is no association pushing for other venues for these horses, endurance for the wealthy, team penning is a no no it seems, mounted shooting whatever it is called a laugh, so off to Mexico to the kill plants.

Horses are coming down the slaughter pipe line - showing up from Montana and North Dakota

Finally last week of June into first week of July got over 5 inches of rain. FIRST real rain of the year, before that dribbles with the ground lacking any moisture, hard, heat baked so grass if it grew, mostly did not grow only of course the weeds, and if it grew was tough, lacking in nutrients.

Neighbor bought expensive protein tub, lasted about 3 days with his 4 cows!

Yesterday a grey Arabian stallion came into the feedlot to go to slaughter at Kaufman KIll Pens, Forney, Texas

Obviously well bred, obviously taken care of, and pretty much a go this horse is registered. He was badly beaten up from other stallions along the way of his path to a slaughter truck. One party mentioned he was now in with geldings, mares, mares and foals, getting along quietly. Someone must know who this horse is from his photos. :twisted:

Few more words on these Feedlot Racket Games and then done with it.

If Rescues would all back up for two weeks, or maybe at most, three weeks, these SALE PRICES would drop to where still a reasonable, realistic cost would be available. Go through the listings and read the posters on these Facebook pages, you will quickly note about 90% of all the posts are either rescue people begging for donations on Animal Rights Activists playing the game to the hilt.

Prices of $875 on unregistered Arabian mares, not broke to ride, never had a foal, and probably can never be registered is not a "saving" price, an Angel (Animal Angels HSUS) for a forever home. One woman posted "furever", this is a SALES PRICE. $1000 up to $1500 unbelievable

When a 23 year old BLM mustang gelding showing his age is priced at $675, com'on.

Let them all go and watch the reaction.
