I forgot to mention that the horses were knee deep in manure and mud. The guy must have been tipped off, because he would only give 1 round bale per week for 10 horses, but always had a fresh bale when the sheriff came around. He figured the horses could dig thru the mound of hay and manure below it to get more if they needed it.

My horses are almost knee deep in mud in some places right now too. It is a crappy time of year for mud.

Mine will soon be knee deep in mud (or water if it really floods), not a lot you can do about it sometimes.

My 3 horses go through a round bale about every three weeks... less now that it is getting warmer. Doesn't sound like he is skimping on the hay. My horses have access to a barn but very rarely use it. A windbreak is all that is required for shelter in South Dakota last I checked.

Man I want your horses! I have 4 that go through a hay roll every week and 2 in another yard that go through theirs roughly every 2 weeks.

I do feed good heavy bales... Next year we are going to try squares and see if we can get into spring without pregnant looking geldings

2004 Washington State Supreme Court held in 118 Wn. App. 730, State v. Zawistowski, that Webster's Third New International Dictionary 1621 (1969) definition of "pain" as "a state of physical or mental lack of well-being or physical or mental uneasiness that ranges from mild discomfort or dull distress to acute often unbearable agony."

Any state has the ability now to use this as case law in prosecution of equine abuse.
