I think they should take him down to the creek and not feed him until he dies.

I sold that farm to him. He said he was from Arizona and that he had a horse ranch there. The mother to the dead colt is Kate. My Amish neighbor retired Kate and gave her to Smith with Smith promising to care for her. Kate was pregnant with that colt when she was hauled from her home here in Holmes County to Gallia. That colt was born April 2009, since it is a draft horse it should have been 2 or 3 times bigger had it not been starved to death. Does anyone know if Kate is still on the farm and if she is ok? First he burns down the beautiful house I sold him and now this!!! He needs to be locked up!!

im the daughter of red682 and we are this piece of shits neighbor [And his name is John Smith.] and i was the one that found the horse in the creek and Mrs.Webb (hope all is well where you are)im sorry to tell you this but Kate passed away last year (allong with a cow) and I no it was from malnutrion..all the horses looked like that. after i found the horse finally the horses did get taken away probaly about 3 months ago or so. and the state did end up pressing charges on him for Animal Cruelty. And my mother and i whom heard all the odd an weird noises late the nihjt before and she was home alone an even ccalled me saying she heard these noises..wellwen i found the horse i looked around and theres no hoof prints and a draft horse of that size (esp when its the size its suppose to be) should leave nice big prints in the mud by the creek. but i did everything i could to save the horse. i sat in the creek to my waist n my shorts boots an tshirt, it was freeeezing i felt sobad for the horse...but held her head up until help got there an we got the horse drug out an the vet came out and we got her to come back around she stil was very very weak an couldnt hold her own head up. the next two days instead of taking care of the horse which it could have survived if he would have actually tried to help it an give her the meds and FOOD AN WATER.. i checked on her a few times when they wasnt there and they hadnt even bothered to do anything with her or try. me an my dad tried for hours to get her to stay sat up an would go over to flip her to her other side etc.. it was a very long day..but im glad that i tried everything i could to help that horse and the rest of the horses are gone an taken away so that makes me really happy. an as for the court thing, my mother and i went to court yesterday to b state witnesses..and his was found GUILTY! which is a no brainer to me..his sentencing is on October 4th. We are planning to attend . ill letcha know what happens!

yea dudes shady and creepy and a P.O.S!! he isnt anygood thats for damn sure. i took a buncha pics when all this went down.they are pathetic. sad and its a damn good thing he doesnt have kids thank god....he needs to be drugg out to the creek with a knee to his throat holdn his head under water (teasing him with a gasp of air once n a while just to make sure he is miserable) also with that hot lead enema. Cuz altho suprisingly the state continued an went this far with the charges which shocked me, but im glad, but im sure the sentencing wont be too much kinda like a slap on the hand which is bullshit we all know this.

This guy received 10 days in jail, a $500 dollar fine, and not to have horses until he is off of probation. smh

I bet that horse was worth more than $500, even in it's ill condition. Its very sad but he didn't get much more than people who abuse their kinds, in most cases. Pity
