I was wondering if you could help me, I know nothing about horses. For the last week i've been concerned about this particular horse in a field near where I live. I went down today to have a closer look at the horse. Its very thin, its ribs are clearly visible as well as its hip bones and back bone. The horse also has very noticeable indents above each of its eyes. It looks like it hasn't had a good feed in a while and i've never seen anyone with the horse nor do I know whose it is. The horse also hangs its neck lower to the ground and shakes its head up and down slowly, is that normal behaviour?
When I got back I did some research about Emaciated horses and this horse really does match the description, it looked exactly like what the horses looked like on google images. I've been really concerned about it so I reported it to the RSPCA.
I was just wondering if what I have described matches the description of an unhealthy horse? I really want to go down and feed it each day but can imagine obviously if the owner was to see me they wouldn't be happy. I was just wondering what you guys would suggest I do, leave it for the rspca to have a look (i don't know when there going to have a look) or to go and give it some food each day?
