    Yes! It does hurt. Like the child that cried "Wolf!" The authorities become numb to the hundreds of unfounded calls and real drastic situations then go unanswered. The authorities are so over-worked and under-paid that these kinds of issues get little attention any way. To call in unfounded reports that are much better served by being friendly and helpful to someone is not in the best interest of anyone or the horses. Nothing is accomplished by just going out of one's way to piss someone off.

    I bolded the part you must've skipped over... No worries.

    I don't know about OK, but authorities here are required by law to visit a property if there is ANY chance an animal is being mistreated, abused, neglected, lack of necessities provided, etc. If it turns out to be unfounded, GREAT! But if it IS bad, or on the way to becoming a bad situation, they can stop it or bring it to an owners attention before it gets worse. If OP is unable to educate the owner in question the next best thing is to call, if nothing else they can have a rescue get in contact with owner about proper care/husbandry.

    I would be not be pissed off that someone would care so much to stop or call if one of my animals were in clear pain or danger... Nothing to hide here.

    There are too many people in this world who just look the other way and keep on a drivin'.

    That ain't necessarily so in my parts - depends who you ring, but some will just shoot the horse.... which does tend to hurt them a bit.
