If you can't get anyone to help then open your own wallet and buy some hay for them. If you need to tell the owner a story about how the hay needed to be moved and it was free to you. If it is that desperate of a situation then that is one solution. If it was me I would knock on the door and ask the owner why he was starving the horses but I tend to be straight forward.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Exactly Kevin. I can't name how many friends of mine have been turned in for horse abuse when it actually has turned out the horse had health problems.

Not saying that is the case here, but it's worth walking up and asking them rather than go behind their back and call the po-po out on them.

As for snapping pictures of someone's property - not the best advice and not the place of anyone but the authorities. Snapping and then posting them on the internet, even less of a good idea.

Yeah thats true
Sorry I wasn't thinking

Life is about doing something you love and never giving up.
