Your post is a bit hard to follow. Are you unsure that the horse's owner is aware of the injury? If so, and if you know him (as it seems in what I have taken from the post), why not ask him about it?

If I read that right, the owner just recently got the horses, which means they were already in that shape. Maybe they are rescues?

You need to explain it again.

But if the owner is nice you may want to talk to him.
Nothing gets me more aggravated than someone calling in the big guns when a quick conversation would have cleared the air. Not to say it is wrong to call the humane society or whatnot after you have stated you peace and the situation isn't improving.

My horses have done so well on dac that I became a rep. Stand behind 'em 110%.

Take a walk and talk to him. This is a no brain-er,especially if you already know the man.
