    Ok let not turn this in to a fight but......

    The ACO came out and said they were a little skinny but she could tell we were trying to get them better.

    She came out and we were cleaning the pasture and they had tons of food in front of them. We explained that they are older horses and hard keepers and we were really trying.

    And like I said my parents buy the feed. They buy the de-wormer. They pay for vet and farrier. I didnt really get to decide on how much or what to feed them.

    And yes my parents were responsible at the time bc I was 16.

    If the horse has food and water and shelter, you can't really do anything. If the horse was in good weight and is being cared for, there is no reason for AC to be called. DO NOT ASSUME. That what my neighbor's friend did when if she would have came up and talked to me I would have gladly explained the situation

    Sorry to say but you basically have no right to touch this horse whatso ever. He's stalled, food, water, and even blanketed just because his owner doesn't want to come play with him doesn't make it cruelty. He's already got it better than some horses. If you're civil with his owner it wouldn't hurt to ask to exercise him or just do something with him. You've noticed they haven't had the opportunity to make it out to the barn recently and were curious to see if they would like their horse to be exercised? And if you like him that much you might be able to talk them into a free lease or something. But this is not a reportable case of neglect, its just stupid horse keeping. And if you don't want to inquire to his owner, mention your concerns to the barn owner. Your barn owner should be somewhat interested in the well fare of the horses kept on their property seeing as how it could make them look bad.

    Just like someone else said the horse could be badly injured and need to be stall rested.. How long has he been like that?

    My horse weaves and he gets great care! Feed, clean barn, Groomed and put out in their pasture and he has another horse for a play mate. They are not getting ridded at the moment because of the ice and snow we are getting.
