Wow, I hate hearing about stories like this (although I'm glad the horses got rescued)...my horse was a rescue who came from a similar situation, and I don't know how people can knowingly starve an animal! Why wouldn't you just say "hey, I can't take care of her anymore, so I'd better find someone who can!"??

People who can neglect and/or abuse animals have deep issues IMO...

yeah, I'm defiently going to do something in the area of horses and maybe horse shelter things.
If I can save just one horses life, it will be worth it.
:( I hate people who do things like this. It is very upsetting .

being in this area, these stories make me so angry, horse racing is a big thing here and the conditions that some of these horses are in is rediculous. I can't believe this was a headline on MSN!
