I didn't hear about that I must of missed that story about all those horses. Thanks for the link! They are from Tahlequah. The sorrel horse lived with me for 9 months and I fattened him back up and sold him to the mans ex wife she put him in a pasture down the road he is still looking great. But since she was willing to pay for him it showed me she had money to care for him and I recouped most if what I spent feeding him. I think I made her swear a hundred times to never let him get that way again lol. And the yearling is in a little country community outside tahlequah sitting in a trash filled lot with nothing to eat. He is so emaciated I don't know how he is standing. The sun kinda messed up that pic. He is just skin stretched over bone, no fat stores and running out of muscle fast. My heart really goes out to him since he still growing so his body is really hurting for calories. That colt is maybe a year old if that. I just don't know why they got the lil guy when they obviously don't have a safe place to put him and obviously don't have any means to take care of themselves well let alone an expensive horse. I'm thinking they didn't know what they were getting themselves into. I'd been by that place several times over the years and never saw a horse and then they got this colt one day. At one point it looked normal and then I go by the place again a few months later and its a bag of bones. Humane society is going out there today to see if they owner is willing to relinquish it. I offered to foster him for a bit if he got cleared for infectious diseases.
This is the same sorrel horse after just feeding him daily and proper care. Posted via Mobile Device
