How does it get that bad before someone takes action?

There was an Alberta man the courts said could no longer have horses as his had had to be rescued. Within weeks he'd managed to get back some of his original horses, despite the court order, plus others. I think what we are seeing is the same mental disorder similar to obsessive hoarders. These people are very complicated to deal with as removal of their belongings/horses can prove most traumatic.

14 stallions and 21 mares!!!! Good grief. The poor little things. Haha the one at 1:18 in the video really does look a lot like Monty.

Poor ponies. That makes me so sad.

Video does not work for me.

Maybe that is a good thing.

I am just appalled by this. Can't believe it was happening so close to home and at a farm that had previously had a decent reputation.

In this case, (and I know because this farm is 15 minutes from my house) it is so tucked back in at the end of a dead end road, with trees blocking it, that unless you trespassed and went onto their property, you'd never even see the horses. I have known of Renn-Brook for a long time, but nobody had a clue things were like that, or somebody would have reported it a long time ago. Most people around here have seen the farm sign, but nobody would have driven back down the long dead end road and drive that the farm are actually on unless they were planning to buy a horse from there. So very sad.

That broke my heart. Outside of mental illnesses, which is a horse of another color, I don't understand why some people have a hard time asking for help or admitting they are in over their heads. I'm new to the horse world but I'm guessing it takes several months for a horse to get that emaciated. I'm sure people would have tried to adopt one or two to help out. Very sad.

Keeping that many stallions is probably an indication of hoarding disorder. Stuff like this is why so many places have limits on the number of animals that can be kept. In Georgia, breeders have to have a state license. They are subject to regular inspections. Some things still fall through the cracks. Every now and then you will hear about multiple horses being confiscated by state authorities due to neglect. It just breaks my heart. I have turned in several neglect cases myself.
