GYPSY HORSE RESCUE
There is no doubt, that as our economy continues to give us grief, horses of all breeds will be found in need and possibly starving. Many breeds have their own rescues, but as far as I know, to date there is no rescue for Gypsy Horses/Vanners/Cobs, in the US. and Canada.
Happily, I can report that as of June 2009, not one Gypsy Horse has come into rescue, in the US. Compare that record to other countries, where thousands end up on someone's dinner table, and it looks as though we are being careful regarding our breeding practices in the US.
As the numbers of Gypsy Horses increase in the US., sooner or later we will no doubt, come across some in need of rescue. A few members of our forum, have offered to take in any Gypsy Horse needing good food, a warm bed and veterinary care etc.
Please know, those members of our forum, listed below, will NOT purchase horses. They will purely take in a needy Gypsy Horse which the owner can no longer keep or a horse which has been relinquished to animal control or an all breed rescue. They will feed and house it, assess it's temperament and place it in a NON-BREEDING, forever home.
It will be the decision of those who rescue, if they will ask a fee or request a donation from those who adopt, to help with medical expenses/gelding etc. Rehabilitation of rescued horses, can become very expensive to those who rescue.
If you would be willing to take in a needy Gypsy Horse and would like to add your name and area to the list below, please do drop us an email and I will place your information here.
If you know of a Gypsy Horse in need, please contact someone on the list who might be in the area. If nobody seems to be close to the needy horse, email me and/or place a post on our forum and we will try to help.
If you should discover a horse in need, please do encourage/beg/demand the owner, not to place the animal in a public auction, where horses most often, end up being sold to a killer buyer to be sold on yet again, to Mexico or Canada for meat.
Those listed below, are members of our Gypsy Horse forum, whom we know well and who
have experince with the breed.
I unfortunately cannot possibly, place names of the now many, who have asked
to have their names listed, but whom I don't know personally and/or have experience
with feathered, Draft type breeds.
I hope those who asked will understand.
