Awww, the poor babies! Give them extra kisses from me. This is absolutely heartbreaking!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Thank you for taking them!

Can you call Animal Control and report the barn?

Wow, even in the shape they're in, you can just tell they are quality animals - congratulations on your purchases! I cannot wait to see update photos in a few months - I bet they will both be absolutely stunning. You're absolutely correct - the 22 year old has a great trot.
Can you report the neglect to a local animal control?

@ tinyliny: I'm sure that the riders knows the state they are in. They had numerous riders in their past being some kind of school horses. They were saved because one of the riders that is volunteering at us wanted to save them.

@ AlexS : We don't have animal control over here so it's impossible to report the barn for what they are doing. Here you can do almost anything without being punished. And it's very sad. We hope that we can save another 2 horses from the same barn that are in the same condition. But I'm not very sure because we are almost full.

@ JustDressageIt : Thank you. They seem to be great quality animals indeed. I'm not expert but I can see that they are gorgeous and seem to have fine conformations. We don't have animal control. So nothing can be done.

And thank you all for the good vibes and wishes. Glad to see so much people thinking at this horses. They really deserve all the good wishes.

what sweet boys <3 I wish them full recovery and a happy life! The thirty two year old looks like the gentlest, most honest horse I've seen in a long time, and that Romanian...he's a looker even in this condition! Can't wait to see how they turn out in a few months after some much needed TLC.

be in your journey, but not all of

So horrible!! i will never be able to understand how people can do this sort of thing to another living creature. Espeshally in this kind of situation, if the horse served them so well in his prime, how could you just toss him away when he ages. its so horrible. poor guys. i'm so glad you took them! and I hope you can take the other 2 aswell, or find someone who can! keep us updated, they'll be gorgous once they gain some weight!

Wow, that is so sad. Those horse probably worked their little hearts out for their people, and their people let them down.
