    Oh, man, some of those poor little guys are in bad shape. My chubby little 36" furball will be getting extra pettins and scritches.

    $150 and 5 days for a Coggins test? Good Lord, around here a Coggins is around $18-$25. You can get an immediate Coggins done at the sale barn for that.

    Yeah, that is really high, wonder if the price includes a health certificate?

    On a side note, Washington does not require horses coming from Oregon to have a coggins.

    I don't really need a mini, but I could probably foster one or two. Have to see what the SO says, but maybe I'll take a trip down to Grants Pass...

    Looking through the pictures, I can't help but wonder why these ponies were confiscated. There is one little gray that is in pretty bad shape and a couple who appear to have eye injuries but the rest of them look in pretty good shape. I'd love to have the little line backed grulla mare and there were a couple of paints that were cute. If I ever get rid of all the big horses, I think I'm going to have minis. They are cute, don't take up a lot of space, don't eat much and I can drive around in a cart instead of ride.

    I wish Grants Pass wasn't such a long drive from Yakima. There is a little buckskin that I'd love to have. Would take one of the mini donkeys too.

    I posted a thread on this a couple days ago and it didn't get any views. Thanks for bringing it up again. There is a link in my post to a thread about why these horses were confiscated.
