Owner says she's done nothing wrong - she just had too many horses. This is just sick & wrong...I am in charge of 70 plus horses as well,(42 are mine) I am NOT rich and this IS a big job. Her excuses are just that - EXCUSES! I also rescue and its sad but so gratifying seeing them (the fortunate ones) come back to health and finding good homes for them. In reading the news reported, I do not understand "deciding whether to file charges or not?" For God Sakes, Why would that even be a question??? And what about the NEIGHBORS? or the OFFICIALS that were called when the "several times they would get out?... OR ANIMAL CONTROL IN YOUR CITY? Or is your city like so many others throughout states, animal control for pets - and dairy - but NOT HORSES! WHY was it allowed to get this far. What is wrong with the laws for horses -(besides that there is hardly any)... As usual - the horses, they have no voice - they have no choice!
This is NOT a forum to point fingers, but d... it - this happens over & over in so many states and the outcome is the same. Ignorant horseowners, if they are lucky enough the (some) horses are rescued and given a chance to come back to health, and the owners get a slap. It's sooooo discusting. How long does it actually take for horses to get in this condition? This was NOT overnight, or even within a month. THIS TOOK MONTHS! WHY was it not taken care of earlier - before it's full blown news and heartbreak and so much suffering and grewsome deaths? Cudos to Days End and the volunteers for their efforts now BUT WHY WAS IT ALLOWED TO GO THIS FAR?
