Atleast then you can get a closer view, without really imposing...
In this day, I would never ever suggest that. At least not going without at least one, preferably more, people, and potentially armed. Never ever go to someone you don't know, into a place you do not know, in a situation that you don't feel comfortable with for a horse from what you saw from the road. That is a bad idea. Call me paranoid, but a lot of bad could come out of doing something like that.
I'd stick with the, there is nothing you can do unless the horses are without food/water/shelter(even sub par shelter).
