Step away from the computer,
Came up on a friends profile (she doesn't own the horse, someone posted it to her in disgust)

I'm not familiar with any NSW rescue orgs & who's dodgy & whatnot but if anyone knows of them can you please pass this on?

lets see its a bussiness trying to make money and survive, so finding a compainion home is a bad thing?

or if not send off.... dogging is by the least worst end.... me i think living in the paddock starving and not looked after a far worse life, than a quick trip on a truck.

while not my choice, it not the worst fate.

No - finding a companion home is NOT a bad thing - hence why I just put this post up.

Sending it to the doggers just so you can reclaim a little bit of money back - are you kidding me?

Yes, your right there are MUCH worse things than death - so put the poor thing down instead of enduring a unnecessary trip to the knackery.

nsw does not have the same access to body disposale as does vic....

so while they might be able to have horse pts at home, the local council by laws might see them on a polution charge if in a built up area like most riding places.....

i have never seen anyone make money from doggers in nsw often they want you to deliver horse at your expense so they can offer you $200.00...or more often less...

At least they are being honest and not pumping full of drugs and selling it on to an unsuitable home. There are far worse things than the knackery.

For all you know they have been trying to rehome him for some time, there are only so many companion homes out there and they are becoming rarer as everything gets more expensive.

Woman that was rang stated that he was just put up for advertisement - so no he hasn't be around for ages. They want him gone asap or he will be sent to the knackery.

Taylorboy - I actually never knew that NSW was like that - thanks for the heads up.

Nope - purpose of finding out the truth first. She is willing to take him once she can figure out transport but the main point of this post was to see if any rescue orgs up in NSW can take him on. Not for people on the forum to take on out of the goodness of their hearts - if you can, good on you!

That's okay! thanks for considering it but!

I don't expect people to open up their hearts to take him on - I just thought if someone out there from NSW can give anyone a heads up about him it might buy him some more time until some can do right by him.

I'm no way associated with this horse - so don't shoot the messenger! Just trying to help out!

A little too far from me too, and I can't afford another arthritic horse Sad Already have an arthritic paddock companion here... Poor boy. If it's the riding school I'm thinking of, they have PLENTY of room to retire him or even pts and bury, as it's on huge acreage. Shame on them. And I always thought they were reputable too, this has changed my mind.

Yes that's them.
No, they do not need to send him to the doggers - if worst came to worst, they could have him PTS and buried on their countless acres of land. Legally, they are able to do this also.
They are just money-hungry ferals and I'm not in the least surprised about this.

I'm moving back to the coast (not far from them) but haven't moved yet and at the moment I'm about 6 hours away Sad Sad Sad I will forward his ad on to some people I know on the coast though.

As I said though, doesn't surprise me in the least about these people. Sad

Unfortunately, I agist about 20minutes from there but do not have the $$$ (agistment in NSW especially only an hour out of Sydney is through the roof).

The poor thing, he has probably been used even with his arthiritis, like RE said they have a ridiculously large property and are more than capable of PTS opposed to the doggers.

Glenworth are notorious for many reasons. I would never ever consider leaving a horse in their care.

Who knows what laws are what these days, but they might be able to rehome him, I would take him, but I don't know how he would take a 12+ hour truck ride, depending on the extend of his arthritis,

Don't know if I'm just reading too much into the picture, but he looks in the back end too (or he maybe leaning forwards to ease the pain in his front legs?) - I wouldn't think that putting him through an extended float trip would be very fair on him... poor old man Sad Twisted Evil

I have to say why is it "soo disgraceful" when a horse might be sent to the doggers when for one its getting old ,
2 has no use for the current owner and
3 is unrideable ?
SERIOUSLY not being harsh or anything but horses are stock and cattle get killed everyday and know one cares why is a horse any different?

I completely agree R4R but in this instance if this horse has provided that much work for them & generated money it deserves a retirement or at least a week / month off then put it down in a loving way. Not ship it off in a truck to it's fate. They owe that animal a dignified death.

As others have pointed out - yes there worse fates than death in this world but if that's the case - put it to sleep on the property!

This computer will self destruct in 10 posts
it annoys me, cos they dont want to look after it anymore, yet put the guilt trip on all of us that if no one takes it, it's off to the knackery.

It would be kinder to PTS at home in his own environment peacefully without the stress of transporting and the smell of death at the knackers
