Hey guys,Vivi here.

I really need your help:
My mum recently bought a plot for our horse.
But,as you may know, horses aren't animals that live alone-they always need at least one partner.

The huge problem is that neither me, nor my family has enough money to afford a second horse right now, but we don't have much time:

Because:

A friend of my mother called a few hours ago and told us, that some stupid guy wants to kill his 10 horses because he really doen't care about them. One of them already was slaughtered today sadly..

He will kill the rest within the next few days, so I really need help fast.
I would be really thankful, if you click purchase on this file: <da:thumb id="499266276"/>
It's only 50 points (~50 cent) but even this tiny bit of money helps a lot!

And,if you don't have the points, it would also be really amazing if you spread the word.

THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!

You are going to save one horse to serve as your horse's companion, what about the other 8 still alive? Why not contact a shelter, private owner, somebody who can do something for all of them? There are thousands of havens and rescues and even more activists who can do more for those horses than saving one would do... And faster. DeviantART is not the place to go to save the life of an animal in need if you're in a rush.

In addition, horses are perfectly capable of existing without a partner. They don't need one. I've lived all my life with horses and worked with them competitively - a horse does not need another horse to be happy. You should be his companion, and if you're not spending enough time with him to consider yourselves true companions, best friends, then perhaps some prioritization should be the next goal for yours and his relationship...

I wish you luck, and hope that you will call the proper authority or figure.

well,we already asked around. But here where I live we don't have shelters for horses. A friend of my mother
takes care of old horses or ones which were abused, but she simply doen't have enough money to take them all.
And of yourse saving 8 is better than saving one, but, if noone else can take one, saving one is still better than saving none.

Really? The horses I know always got crazy when they were alone.
In addition we simply don't have enough time to take care of the horse every day.
The horse we already own lives together with 3 others and that's perfectly fine.
Even if we don't have time she still has other horses to do horse stuff with.

Just as a side note, why do you need another horse if your horse is already living with three other horses to do horse stuff with lol
RTHBN's avatar
lmao yeah that was a question of mine, as well

they sent me a ridiculous note which i refuse to even acknowledge

-- In addition we simply don't have enough time to take care of the horse every day. 

Caring for a horse is a daily task. If you don't have enough time, do not get a horse. This is a LIFETIME commitment. Horses live well past 20 years, over 30 in some cases. You are making the animal suffer for no good reason. How exactly are you on a time constraint if you're using deviant points (that equal to fifty cents) and whenever you FINALLY get the amount necessary, it will take no less than 2 weeks MINIMUM for deviantart to give a check. To be blunt, if the friend of your mother takes in the abused/neglected horses, she should probably consider yours one as well. Minimal neglect is still neglect. I, like RTHBN, have owned numerous horses through-out my lifetime. I have rehabilitated numerous horses on separate occasions, both separately and with other horses as my other companions/their herd mates. Including a stallion. Horses don't "get crazy" if they are alone. I'm not trying be cruel, but I'm not going to sugarcoat it either, because your feelings aren't worth an innocent, helpless animal's well-being.

I can understand that, I've been in the position of caring for animals that no nearby shelters are able to take >w<;;I have about thirty rescue animals to take care of right now. It gets tough.
However, for something like this I think a lot of shelters would be willing to travel to pick the horses up, since it's not just one. It could be an idea. 
I just feel bad, because I don't really believe you will be able to raise the money on dA in time. I hope you have another source of funds coming in. ;-;

I'm sorry but I don't support this idea at all, if you're having trouble affording proper feed and care for your current horse - how are you going to afford another? To put it bluntly, they would very much be better off humanely slaughtered versus starving to death or suffering otherwise. I know "saving a life" seems very heroic and enjoyable and nice as an idea, but when it's a situation like this it is NOT the thing to do. The best thing to do would be contacting people in your area, a local SPCA, big animal vet, etc anything of the like that could lend a helping hand, rehome the horses, etc. If you're struggling to pay for feed for a horse, I am doubtful that you'd be capable of affording a big animal vet for routine check-ups, a farrier, etc.

I think you got me wrong.
We do have enough money to take care of them. We have enough money for the vet etc.
But at the moment it's a little hard, BECAUSE we bought the plot for the horses and it did cost a lot of money, and we need money fast or it's over.
And, before any of the animals we own starve, I would rather stop eating to make them live, you can be sure about this.
We already asked others but here where I live shelters don't take care of horses, they don't know where to put them.
A friend of my mother takes care of old and abused horses,but she doen't have the money to suddently get 8 new horses sadly...
Also she is planning to save some horses from the horse market in Skaryszew, and she needs all her money for this...

I didn't get you wrong, I read your journal as it was written. 

"The huge problem is that neither me, nor my family has enough money to afford a second horse right now, but we don't have much time:"


This blatantly states that you do not have the money to afford a secondary horse, therefore insinuating further lack of necessary funding for continuous care -- including BUT not limited to: feed, vet care, and so on and so forth. Again, like my previous comment, if you do not have much time, you are looking at a two week minimum for WHENEVER/IF you get the amount necessary/needed to turn it into cash for deviantart. It is not immediate money in paypal. 

But at the moment it's a little hard, BECAUSE we bought the plot for the horses and it did cost a lot of money, and we need money fast or it's over.


Again, two week minimal wait for whenever the amount necessary is reached. You should always have AT LEAST one acre minimum for each horse, that is something you should research and prepare yourself before you even have the horse -- much less multiples. I'm aware of how much horses and horse care cost. Although I was/am lucky enough to live in the country with lots of acreage, vet care is still a necessity and can become costly. When my last horse became violently ill and I could not afford continuous big animal vet visits (which in themselves are costly and typically 100-200 for just a routine check up and seeing as how these are horses a person is willing to simply slaughter they are likely poor in health otherwise it makes no financial sense to simply slaughter versus sell, even to a slaughterhouse) I did the RIGHT thing by surrendering him to the veterinarian so that she herself could continue his care. 

If your mother's friend does not have the money to suddenly get eight horses, she shouldn't be trying to "save" horses from a market anywhere. Horse business is expensive business and their lives and care are not to be taken lightly, this is a daily and lifelong commitment I don't think you're taking very seriously and it's painful to see.
