I have done a lot of soul searching about that and i probably should have reported it when i saw it any one of the several times i saw it . i really wanted to but the fact is that everyone is related out here and I'm not "family". i did speak to the police officer neighbor and she said "don't even waste your time they are all family and I've reported them till I'm blue in the face our animal control officer for this area is their family." still i should have spoken up. I was really torn between the idea that what they do with their animals on their property is their own business, and knowing that nothing would happen anyway and thinking that i don't want to make any enemies with my neighbors if I don't have too.....

thanks i was beginning to think I'm the only person who doesn't want to mess with anyone elses horses LOL and the horses are fine. in fact i bought them some alfalfa hay today so they are super happy :) it's a rare treat down here. Other than having the tooth broken off which i don't know how that will affect him, big red is totally fine. I probably overreacted but her they are my babies and i love them. i was just playing over and over in my mind seeing him get hit in the head and it made me really really mad. made me think i should have reported it before and let the chips fall where they may. at least then there would have been a record if it.

will you need to have a dentist do something to the broken tooth?

i don't know that is what i was wondering. i really feel terrible about it and i know when MY tooth breaks off it hurts like the dickens. i don't know if horses teeth are the same tho since they file them down and i think they keep growing?? there was another thread that said that they do fine with a missing or broken tooth. I noticed it yeaterday and i think ill call the vet and ask him tomorrow.
