In today's times people are unble to take care of their pets. It has happened in other countys and citys that people are backing up to someones gate and turning their horses out on someone elses fields. When you show up you find out that you have additional animals. What are you suppost to do ? You have no clue who did it. Then you have someone turn you in for not feeding your animal. It takes along time to up weight on a horse if he is down on weight. In the winter it is extremely difficult! All this does is make people not wanting to take in hoses in that condition , because someone will turn you in for not feeding the horse and you have all of this to deal with. I know of people who went to the farm to find horses tied to the fence or in their feild. I have horses and they are very well taken care of . I too have people ask me if I would take their horses and this is why I say Know. It also depends on where you live in the country as to how a horse is suppost to look as to weight. Here we are to the heavy side of that scale. There has been calls backing up what the lady story.

OH PLEASE! This "lady" is so obviously a hoarder! She needs to have ALL of her animalss confiscated and she needs to get psychological help. She is starving and dehydrating these animals, and she needs to have ALL rabbits, cats, dogs, goats, and horses taken from her and placed where they can be properly fed and cared for. You can bet if she had WANTED help, she could have asked for help. I don't buy her "Poor ME" sad story.
