Total deja Vu for me-a friend is caring for the survivors from this case, which is STILL in court and ongoing. Has been for quite a while now. Sad part is-in this case this crazy hoarder may just get her horses back. ;-(

The unfortunate part of this case is that she will probably not get much jail time, the case will probably be plead down, she will get a suspended sentence and a fine.

My sister inherited a whole herd from the infamous Grady Whitlock starvation case a couple of years back here in WV - 30-something horses died...she and her husband started donating hay and time to help feed them from the time the story broke and I was out on the farm with them a few times feeding...I have never seen anything sadder in my entire life...some of the weaker horses had just given up....the workers would carry hay to them where they were standing...she has about 20 now and they have forgotten that life of not having enough to eat....fat, sassy, beautiful, so I pray for that ending for these surviving horses...

I have not heard results of the blood tests they were doing on the horses to check for illness and disease...

People can be so sick, This economy is showing a lot of peoples true colors. Unfortunately when all is said and done these cases will cause the powers that be to impose stricter regulations on breeding operations. They do need to impose regulations and fines for backyard breeding creating mutts. I will probably stir up a can of worms saying this. But oh well... However there are pros and cons on all arguments. Most people treat their horses as an investment and to a degree it is. Unless it is a consistent winner in events or classes it is a hobby and a pet. Too many people buying prospects that do not work out and try selling them saying "I spent $2500.00 for the horse and another $6,000 on training so I'm asking $10,000 dollars for the horse. Sorry but the average person does not agree with that kind of logic. The painful truth is You took a gamble and lost, That is the harsh reality of it, do not try to profit from the loss at the horses expense by holding out for your dream price if you cannot afford to feed the poor creature. If your Barrel Racing, Roping, Jumping prospect does not cut it for you then sell at reasonable price to someone just getting into the events. Anything you own is a gamble. People should lower their standards and take the loss rather than holding out for the Brass ring, Resulting in the starvation deaths of so many innocent animals.

Holding on to an animal because you can't get the price you want and then starving it is stupid. A skinny animal NEVER is worth what it would be if it were well cared for. The value just goes down and down.

And those babies are no doubt stunted. They may never reach their full potential, so they are surely worth a lot less than they would have been with a little common sense care.

Horses are considered livestock not pets, so they are not going to control breeding of them because if they did they would have to regulate the rest of the animals considered livestock, the farmers and ranchers would not go for that.

No, the Powers That Be won't be 'imposing stricter regulations' because they have no authority to impose any. Dog, cat, and horse breeding aren't like breeding other livestock for food purposes. There are no regulations beyond the regular animal cruelty ones, and food purposed animals only have FOOD regulations, not breeding ones.

I'm not sure where you got the idea that the Feds have the authority concerning the breeding of ANY animal. They don't, plain and simple.

Animal cruelty charges need to be bumped up to felonies, not misdemeanors. That's really the only thing that can be done and it's up to each individual state, not the Federal government.
