    I'm going to try and sneak some pictures to bring them to the town judge. And if he does nothing then I will have to resort to what you guys are suggesting. *sigh*

    Keep in mind that technically he's obeying the majority of equine and livestock laws. Your efforts may be better placed in getting the laws themselves changed.

    Most places require only food and water - only certain places require shelter because shelter is a VERY broad term. Technically, properly cared for range animals do not need shelter because they have enough trees and windbreaks to do it for them. So a lot of places don't include it as a law because it can be taken out of context.

    It's great you want to do something for them, but yes, you're right, a horse IS going to have to die before someone does anything. It's bad enough in places with proper animal control - good luck in an area with nothing.

    Why are the horses so skinny if they have a massive round bale?

    I just want to thank you for all your attempts to solve this situation. Not too many people step in when there is an obvious abuse.

    I can believe that. One barn I knew used to buy massive round bales for horses. The only problem was the hay was a quality the cow wouldn't eat. All rotten and such. What killed me the most borders were OK(!) with it. Number of people filed complaints to authorities, but I'm not sure what happened (because I moved).

    Thanks everyone <3
    I don't know why they're so skinny. The round bale has been sitting out in the snow + rain + mud for a long time. I tried a round bale once, our horses ate it for the first few days and after that never touched it. No horse person in their right mind in NY would consider buying a round bale for their horse unless it can go inside. It's so wet all the time.
