I had this happen to me when I bought my first horse. He was kept at a boarding faculity that had the owner living on the property, and he was constantly neglected - along with all the other horses.
In the middle of the summer, water troughs would be empty in paddocks with up to 6 horses in them. In the winter, or cold rain, none of the horses with have blankets on, or hay to eat.
Luckily for me, I pulled my horse, and not too soon after she was shut down! :)
A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
