Well there is a few horses down the road from me that are really skinny, like they have hips/ribs/backbones sticking out. They have been like this for a month. I kept driving by and they have not gained any weight in a month. There is not usually hay kept there unless its moldy and unsuitable for horses. I never see the owners with the horses. And they look wormy to me. At first I reasoned with myself saying "oh theyre just old and have a hard time during the winter and digesting". But now I really want to help them. I have room for them at my place and I could afford to get them back into shape. The problem is how do I go about asking if I could have them? I do not know the owners and never see them anywheres. I could pay a little for them, but not much. I was thinking about writing a letter to them and putting it in their mailbox? If I do this what should I say? I don't want to word it wrong and have them take offence and not get them. Should I alert the local horse rescue before I take action myself? I have never rescued a horse before and really want to help these out! I was thinking also about buying some wormer and dropping that, and some hay at the mailbox? Thanks!
