Maybe the sheriffs dept. Should start investigating things instead of just assuming people are guilty of a crime, this mare would be alive and doing well!

They could have waited until the owners were contacted. It's a joke to law enforcement that Paul Moreland is even carrying a badge. But then what do you expect from Ron Lockhart.

just another in a list of bad decisions by his deputies and the department. Hard to say whops, when you are going to have a major problem with a lawsuit, including false arrest.

My 22month old is still asking where his angel is, and my 3yr old is still having nightmares about a mean cop killing her angel! Pathetic he would let a personal grudge against us kill a horse to teach us a lesson... I want his badge!

After Amanda and Scott win this case why don't the Federal Authority check into why Lockhart keeps returning the crackhead, meth making, snitches back on society. Good luck Amanda and Scott...

Wait a sec. Did Paul shoot the horse in front of the children? If not then where did the kids hear about a mean cop killing anything?
Lemme guess.... I'll bet that info came from the same folks who set the fine example of cursing and yelling at cops, right in front of those same children.
Great parenting!

If you cared for the horse you would have been responsible enough to secure it. If you are going to curse aloud in front of your kids, instead of owning up to your own irresponsibility, cuss at the "snitch" that called the cops or the vet that opted to euthanize. There were more people involved in this but the main fault is on you alone.
Do something constructive and use this to teach your kids the value of responsible action.

We did not cuss the lady that called the cops, and the only "curse word" that came out of my husbands mouth was damn. We ain't arueing that the horse was loose, infact we said if anything they should have fined us for "animal at large" instead od killing her... the kids were right there when we found out she was killed, when we called the sheriffs dept. All we knew was that she had been picked up by paul moreland, not that she had been killed... and when a cop shows up out of the blue after all is said and done and starts cursing infront of our kids, and saying "y'all killed yer by not taking care of her", that kinda completly gave it away... we took responsibility for our actions, now its time for seq. County to take theirs! Oh, and we have met with the vet, she is a great person, and we have met with red ward, they were lied to from the start with this horse... we save horses, that's what we do.

And in the official vet report, she opted to euthanize because ward was not willing put in the rehabiliation that we were and have already proven we were.. not thAt she was to sick to make it...

I don't think anything could be rehabbed at that dump of a place. Trashy people looking for a way to become famous. Get a life

I got one, and we aren't trying to get famous, personally I don't like people being in my business, but this was wrong on every level.. and our dump of a place, yeah ok, it ain't the greatest place in the world, but we do what we can, we live here because it has enough land to do what we want with our horses, but to each their own. We have rehabbed a lot of horses here, even the mpd officer that lives beside us would verify that.. grow up,
RIP angel

Scott and amanda pour everything they have into saving those horses, and they are raising their kids to always do the right thing, and to stand up for what is right. They may not have a huge house, or have fancy things, but all of us are very proud of what they do. They use their own money for this, they purchase those horses, and loose a lot of money doing it but they are living their dream. They both have been doing it since they were kids so before you judge their place or their character, get to know them, their kids and horse come before anything, those horses are family to them!

go take a long walk off a very short cliff. How dare u judge, until u have walked in their shoes. That's what is wrong with this country, ppl like u judging ppl by the outward appearance and not the true place... The heart.
