we thought about that, we also thought about contacting his brother who actually OWNS the property and who is a well known lawyer and obviously he wont want abusive behavior being associated, somehow it never worked, apparently its not important enough to know horse people. And I have tried to get pictures over the years but now that they are looking better, I really can't do much. Im going to offer the man if I could lease the pony and start to gain his muscles back so the little girl in my neighborhood who rides could maybe ride him. If I leased him, then at least I could have some control of the health of the horses.
And LCharvon, we have tried to tell him on how to care for the horses. We have even given him blankets for the horse during the harsh winters. He doesnt use them, he has an extra paddock that has grass, wont use it, the horses shelter collapse during our massive snow storm, so the horses have really no usable shelter. He is an alcoholic and is so extremely ignorant, for example, his drive way is on a dangerous corner, people for one speed on it and can't see around the turn plus we have a HUGE deer problem...a car came around the turn, a deer jumped out, and the car hit his mail box. When he found out he made a big sign saying "YOU COULD OF KILLED ME YOU IDIOT" things like that are just a little bit odd about him. My mom many many many years ago accidently hit his dog coming around that same turn, the dog was okay but yelped and ran straight to his house and my mom knocked on his door apologizing and saying if he acts weird its because of her and that he will need veterinary care. His response? "are you crazy? You didnt hit my dog, my dog is over there". It was in fact the dog she hit. Its all just a bit weird
