I saw kids with shoes with soles falling off. Some had no shoes. Kids scratching coal out of the earth. People living in huts up on blocks, with newspaper tacked to the walls for insulation. Many had almost no food. I guess that is why Jim Jones started feeding the hungry in the area. He has done great things for those people. Christmas that year, we brought in shoes. Hundreds of pairs of shoes, so the kids could actually walk through the hills and attend school.
I could tell more, but won't. Just want others to know there are people in this country, very close to starvation.
Lizzie, this may be so, but the OP has a cell phone and talks about buying a new computer.
Cell phones generally cost money. Even if it's paid by welfare cash, I imagine there's a couple dollars there. Or hell, pull grass like the kids in that third world country!
If she's talking about shampoo, grooming supplies, trainers at 125 an hour, etc.
PS) I just rescued a starving 2 year old colt this weekend. He's a foundation QH colt and when the breeder can, she will finally send in the breeder report, and he is registerable. ALL her horses are registered, I think.
He is severely stunted from WORMS and lack of food. Can you believe he is 2?
She has no water. She runs it from her aunt, the neighbor. She doesn't have power either!!!
Oh and she just got flooded. OP, this lady, with originally 18 head on this tiny tiny property, no water, and no power--her horses have more food than yours!
And that is a shame!!! I am truly, truly trying to help, but as long as the OP makes excuses, excuses are being made FOR her, and she agrees that things need to change but doesn't change anything, the horse will continue to suffer.
Here are a couple others:
I don't know if you can see right up on the fence, but she has a bunch of bales of fresh hay that got damp, so she dumped them all next to the fence for the horses. She has a few more dry ones with a tarp over them...
