It takes a LOT to get the government involved in animal welfare cases... too much, really. For the "city to get involved", something had to be seriously amiss at this place, so I'm not sure why you are complaining that the person who reported the farm did so?

I guess I don't really understand the original post entirely, but it seems like you are crying over no longer having somewhere to keep your horse that is convenient for you? If that is the case, shop around - there have to be barns around (whether private, etc).

So with the updates to the facility, board is still only $60.00?

Self care or not, that is an insanely low board.

$60 for board? That's crazy low, even for self-care. I'd gladly accept the $30 dollar raise, if it meant better conditions for my horses! Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and look on the brightside of things.

I'm not sure what you are looking for. I must say I applaud Jalter for standing up and helping make a change. I don't understand why you are complaining about your horse's living conditions improving. It would be nice to have an explanation as to why you feel that way.

$60 board is not bad. Its $2/day. I've seen self care go for $300 in some places. If I could find $60 board for self care in my area, I'd get another horse...or two.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Last time I saw board that low I was in Texas... And it was $50 a horse, self care. Sawdust provided.

Geeze! You can't get self-care in VA for less than $150/$200 depending on whether you want a stall or not.

I watched some of the video, as an outside I would've seen the plastic as a wind buffer more than concealment, but I'm naive to the situation.

HOLY CRAP! For $60 dollars a horse, even my husband would let me have another one!!!!! And we're pretty darn broke lately!!!!!! O_O

...Then again, I also like my horses not to be cut by barbed wire, nails, junk...I also like to know the BO has my back if something happens...and the Peace of mind that the city doesn't have to get involved in the places I board at...well that's pretty priceless too...

I'm all for giving someone the benefit of the doubt, but going off of some previous posts where your actions where questionable you SHOULD NOT own a horse, or have anything to do with them!!! From what I can understand from your above post, you come across as someone who cannot afford a horse by any stretch of the imagination, feels entitled to have one, and is the type of person that keeps rescue facilties to capacity.

I PRAY THAT I'M WRONG!!!!! And that your post/vent got lost in translation.
I am more mad that my kids are not going to be abil to play sports and I am in all the heat. The "girl wouldnt ever hurt a horse it was my horses that became the target. And yes the cop came over while we were working there this weekend and talked to me. He is also getting a lot of heat and blame His stalls were storebought and oh he has to take them down to so he isnt at all happy eather. The only thing she did wrong was thinking that ONLY the bad borders would be affected. I am going to walk over and take a few pics of the utah side but note I am not legaly allowed over there because I don't bord there. And I have already ordered the "new shelter" for my horse but they will not be going up untill Aug. End of summer??
But truth all they are doing is moving horses out making it look pritty. They are not DOING ANYTHING about the horses who need hoof care, or vet care. I can at least find a vet willing to come out nexed time I am in need of one now and have passed his name out. I have also found a horseshoer / chiropractor willing to come out if I can get more then just one horse lined up. What is needed out here is not a "beauty lift" we need a thing called resources. Ok the lift also helps but only if the horses were staying. When I can get pics of this side going up you will understand what I mean by not better off because the horses over on navada side have the panel fencing, over on this side.. they are being boxed inside of boxes.

A) sad that I get to see more horses out my window in apalling conditions
B) I am the one taking all the heat, and all I did was agree and pass on her word
C) we need resources not just to make everything look good. NOTHING is getting done with the horses that need vet help exceped getting moved under my window.
D) I have to wach what happens over there untill they get closed down -yes I live in utah. So as untill someone can prove a horse is killed because of living conditions or on verg of death they get to stay put.

I could read your post but it took more effort than most people would take.
I need out of this town before I can do anything about schooling (hint when I first went to get my ged my dad asked me why He felt it was a wast of time, it led to an agumeent that ended with me on the back of my boyfriends dirtbike)
