Yup he's no qh lol. He's a walker. Some are big boned and others are really refined. He just happens to have a really refined build. He looks just like his dad. His mom is a hand taller and is really stocky. She has draft size head and feet, wears size 3 shoes I think. The mare we bred him to is really refined, has a tiny arab size head and size o shoes. Big difference! And the mares look so silly in the pasture beside each other.

Go afterthem. Take them to court get a not fit to own order against them.
If there are other horses there who knows what shape they are in.
They are only trying to intimadate you to cover their own butts. That's the only thing they care about. You have already done alot of aspcs's work for them with the vet being the best documentation.
I am so sorry you have to see him like this.
Thank God you didnt just let this go.
The best of luck

If Spca doesn't respond get ahold of your state rep and senator and report spca to them.
Don't forgot your local tv stations.
You will get action.

I would bet you can sue them for property damage without messing with the ASPCA. That horse was your property and they destroyed its value before they had it paid for. Contact an attorney if you want to persue it.

Also for what its worth I would geld the horse once he was healthier. Geldings, in my opinion, have a much better life than stallions. They generally are calmer and can socialize much easier than stallions. If you wanted to keep him for income then that would be one thing but since you want to lease him out you won't likely make any money on him. Geld him and sell him to a good home or keep him and ride him.

Usually people like this don't have anything worth going after.

This is just a terrible experience! I'm so sorry this happened and your beautiful horse had to suffer so much!
I agree with what so many other posters have said about listening to the vet and going after these guys. For me personally, I can't think of a single thing to say about them that wouldn't have me permanately on the FBI's "watch" list. GRRRR!!!!
