    DEFO need a hair cut lol! I actually think they look kinda funny. Though the burs can get into the eyes and cause irritation. It doesnt seem to be bothering them. He should probably burn down the burs too... But that is easy, if they really wanted to help, take half an hour to clean up the bur bushes.

    Serious Abuse Case in Olive Hill, Ky Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue
    If you read the whole blog and clicked the link to the facebook photos as directed, I am shocked you would laugh at the condition of the horses.
    Maybe you did not click the link, as mentioned, so I will include the link here to the original blog.
    The blog above is a follow up to include property photos only.
    However, the burs are enough of a sign to show serious neglect. They are as sharp as little razors and for a horse to get in that condition shows neglect in many areas; and the colt is clearly undernourished.

    Those are just a few photos of many

    Please read the blog posted first and consider contacting the authorities about this.
    The foal above died yesterday in the condition you see him in above.

    Burs are NOT razor sharp, I know this first hand. They are itchy, and a bit pokey, but that's it.

    The horses that have the burs arent underweight. Why they didnt put up the pics of the scrawny horses insted of the barn pics confuses me.
