35 Starved Hackney Ponies seized in NC


Anyone want a Monty clone? These guys will be going up for adoption once they're back to good health.

Aww poor things! If I wanted to adopt one - once they are better of course- where would I look?

Horses may be cookies to the soul - but ponies are Ben & Jerry! ;)

It's enough to make you cry. Not only are they starved, their hooves are pretty much ruined from neglect.

Carpe Diem!

Poor creatures!

And the owner says: "I've been doing this since 1958," Carter said. "It is my livelihood. It is just me out here. I'm just tore up on the inside about this whole thing, and that is really all I have to say." I'm just speechless. I do understand he's elderly and all, but how is it OK still to starve horses even being elderly? 14 (!!!) stallions and 21 mares, just no words...

Maybe he is senile. Some of his family should have stepped in and taken care of things.

Carpe Diem!

That just breaks my heart! I don't understand how some people can sleep at night.
