OK, I get it, they raised horses, had a great life and things got ugly.
They don't have anyone to step up and take the farm to the next level in the next generation.
WHEN, are the agencies responsible for overseeing and regulating these abuses going to STEP in?
This story has been going on for years, though not publicized.
Can ANY employee of Lollypop or the regulating agencies tell me WHY, they haven't gone to their bosses yet and told them that an emergency exists and something needs to be done? NOW.
Don't let this become another sad story of finding animals dead...

Sorry to see anyone go tru hard times,but if they can't take proper care of their animals they should either sell them or give them away to someone that can. If they abuse any animals they should be arrested and get jail time.Just the way I feel.

so, where's the ASPCA and Lollypop on this issue?
Are we really going to wait until there's dead horses at this "breeder"?
Every day that goes buy is hell on those animals.
Oh, I forgot, you can't see it from your place...
what exactly is the "duty" of you enforcement folk anyway?
Get off your ASSES and stop this already.

is Rodney Farms next?

City closes Queens stables temporarily after six horses die over six months

The Cedar Lanes Stables, which were run by the Federation of Black Cowboys, were shut down by the Parks Department. Some of the animals living there were malnourished and did not have proper accommodations.

Johnny Alexander, who boards his horse named Sweat Pea at the stable, wonders why it took the Parks Department so long to crack down.

“They need to put out bids and find another group to run this,” said Alexander.

great.

US companies seek final approval to start slaughtering horses for food.

About eight miles outside of Roswell, N.M., a shuttered cattle farm is getting ready to reopen its doors. Only this time, the Valley Meat Co. won’t be killing cows. It hopes to be the first U.S. farm to start slaughtering horses for human consumption.

Not far behind could be plants in Missouri, Iowa and Oklahoma.

Across the country, companies are applying for permits with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to kill horses for food – a practice Congress ended in 2007. The measure to stop the slaughters, though, lapsed in 2011 and now companies are clamoring to get back into the game

so, this means that the horses will receive less attention from the SPCA than 5 pit bulls?
or is it just the Rochester region? Buffalo seems to care...

PATHETIC.
I vow to NEVER donate another PENNY to an SPCA event, fundraiser, request, solicitation, newsletter, door-to-door, or any other way they approach me.

ALL of my donations from here on in, go directly to Scottsville Veterinary Hospital.
They adopt out more pets than ANY organization locally, and they NEVER send ridiculous high cost glossy requests for money.

5 pit bull terriers seized by SPCA in raid at animal rescue in Elma

An animal-rescue operation called Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue on Bowen Road in Elma has been raided by officers from local law enforcement and the SPCA Serving Erie County, as five pit bull terriers were seized and taken to the SPCA's Town of Tonawanda shelter.

Gina M. Browning, a spokeswoman for the SPCA, said Eric Gray, the operator of Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue, a 15-year-old not-for-profit organization, has been ordered to appear in Elma Town Court for proceedings in the animal-cruelty case April 4.

Browning said the raid on the shelter at 610 Bowen Road began early Tuesday afternoon. No spokesmen for Smilin' Pit Bull could be reached to comment Wednesday night.

The organization's Facebook page lists it as a public charity focused on helping needy pit bulls in the Northeast. It says the organization is “committed to increasing pit bull awareness and to furthering responsible dog ownership.”

Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue has been controversial in recent months. A Facebook group called “The Truth About Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue,” which started Jan. 11, includes dozens of stories from people who say they have had experience with the organization.

Those making critical comments identified themselves as one-time foster families for dogs from the group, people who adopted dogs from the group, or people who were once active in other ways with Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue.

Some of them complained that dogs had been denied veterinary care for injuries or illnesses and had deteriorated while in the group's care. Others said dogs had been confined to crates for extended periods.

Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue's Facebook page and its companion website include a forum discussing many aspects of pit bulls, from veterinary issues and training to diets and sports.

A posting by Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue says,“This site journeys through our past 15 years of owning and rescuing this wonderful breed.”

I worked for this farm in the late 90s. I had huge concerns about the care some of the horses received back then. I was a young girl just out of high school and have regretted my silence ever since. Some of those horses only got out of their stalls once every few months for a turnout. Except for niatross and call for rain, most of those horses were starved for attention.
