Okay so I heard it through the grapevine that the barn I have my two horses boarded at have been reported to the local humane society. I have mentioned to the barn owner that her horses are looking skinny and their feet had needed done but she didn't really say anything to me about it.
One of mine is looking much better than he did before, not underweight by anymeans he just is lacking in the muscle department. Then my other one is skinny and I have been telling my barn owner to bump up his feed and whenever I go out I always give him extra hay and grain because I know she isn't bringing him in like she says she is. She told me she brings him in in the morning feeds him breakfast gives him hay then he stays in all day with hay in front of him all the time. Then he is supposed to go back out at night after she feeds him dinner then she throws hay out to the whole herd at night. I have came out to the barn numerous times at random times and he is ALWAYS turned out. I even sat out there all day one day working different horses and she never brought him in.
I have been thinking about moving barns but I love the location and I have just decided soon I am just going to start feeding my two on my own.
But can I get in trouble with the humane assc. For my boy being underweight? I don't see how I could since I am working on his weight and its not like with her how all except like one of hers are showing their ribs.
