It doesn't matter who was SUPPOSED to be responsible for these horses...Pamela Lunsford had them on her property and should have been taking proper care of these animals or entrusting them to the care of someone who could. I hope she is thrown in jail for the entire 364 days and has plenty of time to comtemplate what these poor animals may have gone through. This is just sickening!

Thats like saying he said he would get the kids on the weekends, but didnt, so she didnt feed them all weekend because that was his responsibility. you cant just let something die like that, pinned up without food. the lot across from the graveyard is despicable, too. i have seen the horses out there when it is completely covered in water, and they are standing there for days. that can cause hoof rot (like gangrene) which is a death sentence for a horse. they are usually so skinny their ribs stick out. they have no shelter. i have called animal control, and in typical carlsbad police fashion, the did nothing, and then said there was nothing they could do. that is animal neglect, and abuse, plain and simple.

You people do not know the whole story either. Shawn should be arrested and charged with many counts concerning these horses as well if she is going to have to endure this BS.

You got that right about the cops, they would just like to hang out with each other and not do their job, same as the city employees gathering to eat somewhere. Mayor should be ashamed of himself for not having the balls to stand up to these loafers. Or I guess when he thinks about it, he starts to throw up.

How is it BS when she let a horse die on her property and then left it there? she could have called animal control and had them taken away. she has children who watched this happen! they watched their mother fail to value life in any way. if she can let her horses starve how does she treat her children? she should get locked up for more than a year in my opinion.
you know the whole story? then tell us! tell me something that makes this OK! there is nothing you can say that will make this ok!

Who ever this is makes me sick. id like to feed her just enough to let her live for a few months, let her get down to skin and bones, eat in front of her, and then... well i cant say i would kill anyone but at that point id turn myself in, and her too. claim temporary insanity or something, do some jail time of my own.
truthfully id like to kick her ****. kick her square in the teeth with my country boy boots that have been in a hell of a lot of stirrups. horses are family where i come from. when they die of eventual old age after having been pastured for some time, we grieve. youre disgusting and a disgrace. i have never wished this on anyone, but i hope pita gets a hold of you.

No, the kids not watch their mother not value life. She treats her kids very well. You dont know all that she has had to go through. They need to go after Shawn. Just for your info, the judge made her keep the horses and did not make Shawn do a damn thing but be allowed to terrorize the family.

If you were so meaningful about your words then where is your real name on here at? You dont know her story or what she has gone through. She got down to 95 lbs already due to what all Shawn did, she had no money and starved to allow her kids to eat.

The poor dear. We had no idea she was forced to receive her husband's property, thrust into the family home and, sob forced to cash his child support checks. Oh, the travesty of it all.

Still, if she could afford a telephone to pump all her bull-shy6t into your ear, how come she couldn't dial up a horse buyer and make him a real good deal? Or even the Sheriff to whom she could explain her plight?

Doesnt change the fact that she could have gotten them taken away by animal control before they starved and died. im glad she fed her kids, but if shes that desperate there is the ISD office, set up so people dont have to starve.
NOTHING YOU CAN SAY CAN MAKE THIS OK! i dont care what she went through, she should have done SOMETHING!
Probably a jealous desperate ****. everyone looses weight when they go through a divorce. shes probably on drugs. thats why shes at 95 pounds. for that matter, let them GO! Fu3k it right? they could have survived off the land. she most likley just wanted to hurt her husband.

She let her kids watch her torture a horse and kill it. Torture several more, and luckily a neighbor helped and called authorities that finally took the horse away.
SHE DID SHOW HER CHILDREN SHE FAILS TO VALUE LIFE! she let an animal be tortured to death, in front of her children. get them an advocate, see what they have heard and seen. i bet he gets the kids after s
he is outed as the monster she is.

As Gawd and everybody on Topix knows, I ain't no fan of lawyers, but geez......somebody dumb enough to wither away to 95 lbs in this day in age austensibly to feed their kids? You're not describing someone who's mentally 'right', which means their ability to parent should be challenged. Clues to their mental state are visible in how they maintain animals in their charge. Her children might be next.

Today is not a good day to risk children just to give crazy-assed adults the benefit.

Is this Shawn talking stupid bs? Obviously if this is not Shawn, then you don't know her. No, she did not do a thing to hurt her EX husband. In fact, she is scared to death of him as he is a crazy pos. You wrote the word probably meaning you dont have a clue. How can she have a husband to hurt when she is divorced and has been for a while? As to my understanding the state already knew about the horses, in fact I am damn sure they did.

so the fact that the her ex husband isnt fit means she is? i dont think so. maybe birds of a feather flock together.
SHE did something wrong, and needs to be held accountable. if he couldnt be around them why was it his responsibility? the horses could have been sold, or given away.
how could she have been trying to hurt him? well lets see... just because she is divorced doesnt mean she is over him, or done wrecking his life. and no, i am not shawn. i am a decent human being, a quality i see you are unfamiliar with.
CYFD should look into her. if she needs counseling she needs to get it. saying people are her ex husband, are you her? probably. who else would excuse such animal cruelty

He wrecked his own life by screwing people over. Then he should have sold the horses, huh? She is over him. I don't see you are decent. He was responsible for the horses so he should have took care of them, but instead he is getting engaged, then goes to another person and gets married, then trying to get out of that and find someone else. Either way, obviously you don't know the full story or much of it.

And yes, she is fit to be the kids' parent. They are just fine too. They are scared of their father as well.

I'll just cough politely and leave you to fall on your sword over that little gem of 'wisdom', Likeisaid.

Still before I go, I'm curious - what did CYFD do with the Lunsford kids while she was hauled off to jail for that STELLAR show of wisdom you've bought off on?

You sound like a bitter old hag getting at her ex husband. Pamela did not starve herself to feed her children. She is always out and about trying get it in with any random that she can. She is nothing but a drunk who has one thing in common with those horses... she looks like them!#cameltoe
