Emergency situation.

I can't do this anymore. I have to save this horse. I am located in Southern California so people who knows laws please help! I beg you


So there is this drop dead gorgeous paint. And Belgium draft.

They are in horrible conditions. There hoofs have not been trimmed in probably 2 years. Feet look like dinner plates. And are actually curling up ward.

The horses stall which is about a 36x12 has not been cleaned in a year. Their is 4 feet of poop and pee. And he is standing into his ankles in it.

Another big problem is that the horse has a fungus I'm guessing and has no hair on his belly and I am guessing it itches because the owner has thrown in a railroad tie in the middle of the stall. The horse lays down on his belly and rubs back and forth to relieve the ictching pain.


I need to get this poor horses out of their . The draft is in the same boat with a problem. I am willing to put the time and money for the paint. With shoes and all the stuff needed to hopefully save him. I know he is close to lameness.



How could I get possession of him or at least get him out of the situation. The horse is not starving so I am scared the local equine SPCA will over look this.

Can you buy them from thw owner ? Or call Animal Control and Code commission keeping animals in dirty pens is against most County code laws.
But the property owner could also get into trouble. You need to check the animal codes in your area.

At this point that's all you can do contact your local SPCA and maybe sheriff's department to see if there's anything they can do to intervene. With laws, there's not much you can personally do besides get the word out and hope one of your local groups will take action! Good luck, please keep us updated.

If it is an issue with inadequate feed, water, or shelter, animal control will do something. They should also do something if the stalls are that unsanitary and if the feet are visibly really that bad.

Can you not ask the owner to take or buy the horses from them?

This guy is actually crazy. He has threatened to shoot me.


He is a caretaker I guess of another property. He feeds and cleans the horses. One boarder complained and he cut the tail off to the bone and said the foal did it.


I get so angry I want to knock this guys block off. It hurts so bad. To see the horses in pain. I don't care. I'll take care of them. I try. I come and feed and give them vitamin supplements.


I tried to spray some anti itch spray on his belly. It's bad

I just have a feeling the local agencies will give him a warning. I'll walk them down to the property and show them my self.

Yikes. Yeah, they will probably give him a warning to fix the issues and not do anything about it then and there, which when dealing with somebody like that can be a bad thing, but the only legal thing to do if he won't give them to you or let you sponsor and completely care for them.

I am not sure how old you are, but if you are feeding/messing with/ attempting to treat someone elses horses not on your property, you can get into big trouble or your parents can.
You are tresspassing on someone elses property and that is illegal.
I would call the animal control and report the horses. Even if they only warn the guy, maybe he will take better control of them.

You can't get possession of these animals. If AC takes them, they'll go to a rescue where they'll be fostered and hopefully eventually adopted out. Chances are, you won't be allowed to be either the foster home or adopter.

How you putting yourself in this situation? Are you allowed on the property where this horse is at?

If so - contact the authorities. They HAVE to investigate.
