Any idiot can realize that they should probably stop the truck if the horse is dragging behind it. How do you go so far as to grind down a horses foot? No one is that oblivious.

You're brother should charge his triple or quadruple the going rate for care... and call it a "stupidity surcharge!" I hope this yahoo isn't allowed to own a horse or any other animal after this.

Around my neck of the woods, you go to jail faster for animal cruelty than you do for murder of another human!

That's terrible! And there is absolutely NO excuse for it, I don't care WHO you are! Sandie is my very first horse and I've only been riding for 3 when I got her, I had limited knowledge I will admit. But I board at a barn where everyone is more than happy to help and give advice and through them (and this forum!) I have learned SO much about being a horse owner.

BUT had I ever had a stupid idea like that (and I would NOT! Anyone should know how unsafe that is for a number of reasons!) I would have just asked someone for their advice before I actually did anything! I ask people for advice all the time when I'm not sure of something or have heard of some new way to do something, before I actually go and do it. Sounds like "C" stands for "complete moron"!

This isn't the first time I've heard of some moron doing this. Darwin's theory should really come into play here, "C" should have an unfortunate "accident".

PLEASE tell me you are kidding -- Oh, that poor horse - I hope he will be okay - he certainly deserves someone with more sense than his present owner! I could not live with myself if I did something so horrific to an innocent animal - what in the world?????

Ditto of what's already been said. Stupid isn't really the word that comes to mind.

Stories like this always remind me of Black Beauty, when John goes off on "just ignorance!" It's no excuse. It really makes me wonder how these people survive in life if they've always been THAT ignorant.

As for RiosDad, you need to read more carefully. Considering you just called a whole bunch of people "lazy and sloppy" for not letting their horses fight out a solid pole to learn how to tie, I wouldn't say you're in the best position for telling someone they shouldn't own horses.

smrobs - Haha, ever tried that method on a crazy Arab? I owned this real spitfire once who thought the shortest distance between A and B was as fast as she could go. I got so fed up with fighting with her one day, I said "Fine, run until you quit!" I kid you not, she galloped the entire 10 miles home. I was scared to death. I think I rubbed thirteen bottles of liniment into her. The next morning I could barely get out of bed, and she was prancing in the pasture, ready to go again.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

This is soooo sad!
In my area if some person did this they would go to jail. The law would fine them and take away animal ownership.
IMHO- people do not ask for help sometimes because of "pride and ego"
It is so unfortunate that there are people on this planet who live this way...
It breaks my heart that this type of thing happens, but the reality is it is probably happening more than we really know.
I hope that someone....has reported this and that in doing so Gray may have a second chance at life. How dispicable! Utterly disgusting....
There must be something that can be done to this man for the harm he has caused to this horse....
Pictures of the horses wounds....did anyone wittnes it happening? I would have called the police right on the spot if I saw this happening...
Just disgusting...I hope your brother will be able to get the horse taken care of. Did the vet come out??? This guy probably did not call a vet being that he dragged the poor horse...
I cannot even imagine the horse not having vet care after something like this. I hope your brother will not get in any touble for not reporting it...He is only trying to help.
So sad...
Keep us posted
Best of luck
