What a horrible, cruel way for humans to treat aged champions, and after all they give to us. It's heartbreaking. I can only imagine the pain and misery those horses went through standing in a stall and not being fed, day after day after day. Cruel cruel humans!
Thank you so much for taking them in! I hope the old guy makes a recovery. Please keep us updated on his progress. If you are all full at your barn, do you have friends or neighbors who can go get the other starving horses at the equestrian center?
One question, why does the equestrian center wait that long to give their old horses away? Why can't they do it sooner? Even slaughter would be more humane than starvation.
A good horse is worth more than riches. ~ Spanish Proverb
