Every few posts on FHOTD readers are reminded to supply a "forever home" for their horses and to not do so is irresponsible. This is why I find Fugly's following statement on HD beyond stupid.
"As for forever homes, I've probably owned at least 50 horses and have kept, let me think, seven until death and one is still living that is 29. I do intend to keep Cecil for his lifetime. So that would be less than 20% that I gave a "forever" home to, and I suspect I'm more likely to keep an old horse who can't do anything useful than the average person. I do not think producing horses with the idea that you will keep them forever is the least bit realistic. None of us knows what will happen to us in life. I could get in a car accident tonight and be unable to work and Cecil would have to go to a new owner no matter if I liked that or not - at least I know he is registered, attractive and well trained, so that he would be wanted."
Some how I don't think that her legal assistant job would pay the board for fifty horses. If not that, then she buys a new horse every year and dumps the old one. In addition to a series of horses that she has bought and dumped, there is the question of how many rescues does this woman own. In the following statement by GL, Cathy has given the impression that she's rescued more horses.
"Yet she posted about "her" horse rescues, on HD, quite recently, without ever mentioning where/when/how they came to be rescued. That struck me as very odd. If you are into rescue, and have rescued some horses for a rescue, wouldn't you tell people where they were? How YOU could help?"
Anonymous 7:33 response clarifies the situation.
"Go lightly those were NOT her rescue horses. Do not let her chatter about "we" and "OUR" fool you. They were "rescued" by someone else I guarantee you. She may have been there but someone else is doing to work and footing the bill on those horses. The photos show horses in an area with large fir trees. Fugs lives in LA. Those photos are not LA and those horses are not with Fugs."
Anonymous 9:59 clarifies the picture more for us in this quote.
"FUGS is not involved with horses in LA at all. She is head over heels involved with dog and cat rescue, just a quick check of her twitter account will tell the story. She left Washington in disgrace and left all of her horses behind. So typical for her to palm her horses off on other folks to care for, cause yanno the day to day work of caring for them is more than she really wants to do. Shooting her mouth off about "Celebrity Rescues" and posing for photos is really more her style. Just like her time spent "on the job" she is more flash than brilliance. "
It appears that Fugs has moved to LA to hob nob with celebrity rescuers and has dumping her ancient rescues and the VLC in the process. It appears she is telling everyone online about all her horses yet not owning any. I don't even need to mention the hypocrisy of her actions. Please up date me on this issue. And, if anyone can expand upon the "left Washington in disgrace…" comment it would be appreciated.
