Still ongoing. With the help of a horse rescue, we have got the county animal control to come take a look. Because of the setup, its more complicated than it should be. The city owns the stables, so it's going to be a political issue. We live 200 miles from the nearest town, so I'm suprised county came. They saw my video and showed it to the sheriff.

One rescue accused me of being a pissy teenager looking for something to rant about, and said there is nothing wrong with the horses. Today, the Humane Society contacted me back finally, I gave them my contact information, and I'm waiting for a reply.

Apparently she was too stupid to look past the home page. She only mentioned seeing a door in need of repair, which doesnt concern her.

Hate to say it.. but I have seen worse (MUCH worse) and have rescued a few and rehabbed/resold the outcome of those rescues.

You probably need to look at the Ag and Markets law with regard to Livestock in your state and locality. Horses are usually considered Livestock under most jurisdictions and all that is required is feed, water and shelter. If the animals have those things and those things are deemed adequate, then you are all done.

IMO most of the horses look to be fed enough food. Most appeared to have clean water. Some could stand farrier work. Most of the shelters looked inadequate (unsafe) IMO for keeping horses. Some of the corral enclosures also looked unsafe for horses (IMO). Some corrals had little manure control but seemed dry.

It is a "self help" stable with space rented. The individual owners are who have to be gone after. You need to read a typical rental arrangement to know who is responsible for maintaining fences or shelters. Again, if it is a triple net rental agreement, the shelters can be the responsibility of the renter.

IOW's it is likely a bit more complex than politics.....

Like Elana said they look to have food and water horses don't look to be skinny either. I know around here if they have food and water local sheriffs wont do a thing. Iv seen alot worse then that myself. I rescued one 10 years ago was hide and bones. Yeah shelters are unsafe but at least they have shelter. The hoofs arent great but again iv seen worse there too.
