I hope I can help save this poor colt

While picking up a friends horse to take to the vet I noticed a sad sight. This poor colt starving and emaciated in a small lot full of trash. I honestly don't know how this guy has the energy to stand he has wasted so severely. His back, croup, and neck muscles have wasted making him look hollow with just skin stretched over bone. How can someone look at this poor baby everday and just ignore it. It sickens me that people can be so cruel. If you can't afford to care for the horse don't own one its that simple. This is the best pic I have of him the sun was kinda working against me but you can see his hollow neck and topline. I called the local humane society about him 2 weeks ago but I'm not sure if they've done anything since I went by today and he was still there. I called today about him so hopefully I can get an update. I even offered to foster him. This horse needs to be removed I don't see him living much longer.

Poor little guy! If the humane society won't do anything, you might want to try a private rescue organization and get the media involved.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Call the county sheriff and if they won't move call the TV, channel 9 in OKC does these stories fairly frequently.

People who keep their property like a junkyard, with starving animals decorating the landscape are not right in the head. Good luck rescuing this poor animal, so so sad!

I called the humane society 2 weeks ago. I called them today so hopefully they will call me back today or tomorrow and see if I can get some sort of update. If they won't do anything I'll call the sheriff's department next since the are outside city limits.

OH dear god, offer them $50 bucks for the poor thing and it'd probably save him a lot faster than calling AC =/

It's a crap thing to have to resort to, but honestly by the time the respective "helping" agencies get going, he's going to be feet up in the air.

^the above is assuming there is no illness making him look like that, but if the surroundings are not that wholesome, it's probably just neglect

I just said that to my husband after I posted what I posted that I would even be more proactive and been on their front porch offering them money for the horse.
