I agree. But sometimes there is just nothing we can do.... although I have stolen a horse before that was ready to die((keep in mind I was 15. Young and stupid but had a big heart)). I have called the animal control and police they did nothing. That poor horse, you could count every bone in his body and it was 23 outside and he was laying in mud and wouldnt get up no matter what I did. I called a few people (I was 15 and I had plenty of friend who could drive and pull a trailer). They got there and it took five people to get him up and 3 of us had to say in the trailer to keep him standing. We took him to my friends house and we were up all night with him trying to take care of him we had heaters in the stall after awhile we fed him hay and feed.
4 years later he's a fine healthy horse now and soo fat!! He is still at my friends and gets ridden all the time. He adores her but everytime I see him he runs up to me and lays he's nose on my shoulder.
And if your wondering what the owner thinks...well the BO's uncle, Carl, I told him about in becuase I knew I could trust him, plus he was friends with the guy. He talked to the guy who owned him and asked him "Hey! Didnt you have a bay out there?" and this was the guys reply "Yeah, I think he must have died in the woods. Oh well. One less horse to worry about."
