    Wow, I am disheartened to hear that so many faithful horses and mules are slaughtered in old age. I pray more organizations can be formed and funded to save these animals from such a sad end.

    Horses Sold to Killers vs Adoption

    I’m a bit confused. Are you writing about Standardbreds? Saddlebreds are more riding horses and some are driven but not the way the Amish would want. Now Standardbreds are bred to pace or trot in front of a racing sulky. Thought this information might be helpful for you. Regards, LC

      Saddlebreds and Standardbreds both

      Well, the article repeatedly uses the term “saddlebred” and also quotes someone from Saddlebred Rescue, an NJ organization.

      American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation also mentions the Amish on the front page of their site, and there are multiple articles mentioning Amish using saddlebreds.

      I’m no horse expert, but Amish use Standardbred as well. This link describes the horses Amish use:

      Maybe if our resident horse expert Mr. Oldkat is reading this he could chime in, but I hope that clears it up 🙂

    Praying that more rescue organizations join. Animals are God’s creatures as well.

    Saddlebred and other old Amish horses

    We try to live like the Amish even though we were not allowed to join. I had an abusive husband who beat me and said he would kill both my parents if I left him.
    When we buy a horse, or have bred one, that commitment is for a lifetime if need be. We have been married 28 years. We still have our foundation Morgan mare I bought at a Morgan auction at age five months in 1992. She will be 26 this year and still going strong. Lots of love, pasture and good hay and grain.
