Okay so, 'someone' I know has 3 horses, and they are more so 'lawn ornaments' then pets. They are not in good conditions what so ever, but the owner REALLY does love them. The horses hoofs have not been properly trimmed in SOME time. They are well ever grown, and im worried it may start to cause hoof / leg problems, if it already hasnt. They are a good 2-4 inches too long. One of the horses' hoofs has what looks to be, 'broken' or 'chipped' off, just the front hoofs though. Not sure if it was the owner who did it them selves, OR if the hoof just broke off itsself.
Here are my options, I could talk to the owner about it, and risk losing a good family friend, or just call anonymously to the local humane society, and hope that something happends.. im stuck because im one of those people who wants to help every animal, but I don't know what to do in this situation.
What would you guys suggest?!
