She just reduced the price on him by half (now $1500), had to pull his shoes because she states she can't afford to keep him shod. Getting very nervous for him, wonder if she would agree to give him to Akindale?

This is concerning, especially when she says, "but time is running out." There are so many options for her to give Fourseventeen a good home. Sure hope she doesn't do anything foolish. Wish I could help.

I contacted Akindale- they did contact her, as well as former connections. Fingers crossed!

Sounds like she wants the money so she can get her truck fixed. "If not sold within a 2 weeks I'll keep him." Maybe former connections would pay for him. He does look like a happy and healthy boy. Sure hope this works out well for him.

A former owner did offer to by him, just under her asking price. She said that a friend of hers was going to take him, and that she could possibly get him back at some point.
Last I saw, she was waiting for a check to clear for the sale. I REALLY hope that he will be ok, will try and keep an eye out on him as best I can. At work today, twice with adding some columns, it totaled 417- I kid you not. I feel good that I did what I could for him, hoping for the best.

Wow, nice confirmation that you did what you were meant to do. Good job and Godspeed to Fourseventeen!

Failed prosecution in US underscores uphill battle to end horse slaughter
Animal welfare advocates left exasperated with Proposition 6, a law that has done nothing to stop California horses from ending up on foreign dinner plates

Food for thought.

The one that got away
I lost a horse once. It was both heartbreaking, devastating, and alarming – but more importantly, I had absolutely no idea how to solve the problem. He was gone from the equine stratosphere, and no amount of internet or Facebook searches led me to his re-discovery. To compound my grief and disparity, I was tightly linked to his breeder, his race owner, and his trainer. I knew his every connection, and had great respect for each. And yet I knew that if he did resurface, and resurfaced in a less than ideal location, it would be each of them that would catch the heat – not me. More importantly, not the people that put him directly there.
