poor horses... I am glad that they were taken away from thier owner. If you can't take care of animals, you shouldn't have any.... same goes for kids... but that's another thread!

This makes me so sick!!! If you can't feed and care for your animals then freakin' call somebody who can! Don't just keep them pinned up and starve them to death. From now on whenever a situation comes up like this the owner should be locked up and abused likewise.

Thanks to the Daily Times for covering the plight of these neglected and abused horses. Thanks to the New Mexico Livestock Board for sticking with a difficult case. Thanks to all the volunteers from Four Corners Equine Rescue who helped with the round up and transport to Farmington. Thanks to everyone at Animal Haven Clinic for their professional services. And thanks in advance to everyone who's continuing donations and support will contribute to a better life for these deserving animals!

MANY thanks to the Daily Times for publishing this article! It's important for others to be aware of the animal cruelty that looms in our society. Domesticated animals are helpless without proper care. Situations like this break my heart. The more people who are aware of cases like this, the more help we have to "reduce the abuse." Thank you, Four Corners Equine Rescue, Debbie Coburn, and Animal Haven Clinic!

Good job. Now why don't you go save some of the millions of starving rez dogs.

A note to the Navajo people. Whether right or wrong, the quality and humanity of a culture is frequently judged by the way they care for their animals. In other words, those dogs are making you look pretty ghetto.

I know this is probably "a few bad apples spoiling the bunch", but it reflects poorly on all of you.

awwww that's so sad. I hope that man serves more then 10 years in prison for what he did. Laziness is an excuse used far to often and it's good that this time it did not work in his favor.

I'm sure the community will help, we do have a very small and caring percentage of people who really care.
Lets help these poor animals out, they were God's first creatures and we should care for them as he once did alone.

This is terrible. Just like seeing large dogs in small kennels, or tied up in the sun.

To person that sounds to the tune of What the F---------- you failed to mention the unattended horse's, cow's, sheep's & goat's, that roam the REZ & owners don't seem to care enough to care for their live stock's? I witness it when I go hiking on top of mountains & in my travels, I've complained to the live stock officials, but it's seems not important enough to address? even though it's a hazard on the roadways! till someone is injured severly or killed! it should not be over-looked, as it is now! thanks & beware travelers!........A Concerned Native

Seems to me that there is not a person who knows any of the particulars here and from the area. the Olivas' have had an independent Vet examin the horses and said they were OK. I know them and they are upright people in the community however i do not know the horses except for them being examined. It is easy being in California and making statements and i guess that how this new goverment works -- guilty until proven innocent.

Hmm, sounds like how we feel about your posting.

RE: Cuban friend's post
I have personally seen the Pasos at least twice (through binoculars). Also, I helped gather the horses on Friday. I wear glasses, but I'm not blind. I know a skinny horse when I see one!
If anyone has doubt's as to their condition, visit the Four Corners Equine Rescue website and judge for yourself.

To FHS403 -
Appreciate your thanks, but I was just a "grey ghost" minding the perimeter. Debbie & Terry Coburn, Robin, and the other pros did the real work. Because of them nobody - horses or people - got hurt. Credit where credit is due.

Nevertheless, it is appreciated by us, and definitely the horses. Please give the others our thanks as well when you next see them.

I live in Pennsylvania now, but while I was living in New Mexico I volunteered at FCER and saw first hand the selfless dedication that Debbie devotes to any needy animal, but her first love and passion is the horses. I admire and respect her, and the sadness that you feel when you see this kind of abuse is quickly overcome by the satisfaction that you get in seeing them rehabbed and loved. To see the horses spirit grow as the food and attention is lavished on them is, in a word, priceless. Not all of the horses are success stories, because, frankly, some of them are too far gone by the time the government wheels grind enough to seize, but the ones that can be saved are always heartwarming. Good job FCER.

This is silly. Really you saved four skinny horses in a DROUGHT? That is not pat-on-the-back worthy. Why not focus on real equine issues?
