Honestly it's a pretty shady looking trailer and they also have a bunch of barrels with roosters in them so I'm thinking they keep fighting roosters. They don't seem like the type to let me walk up and offer them money. I'd be afraid to walk up to the door at this place. It's a shaby trailer with trash everywhere. It doesn't really scream visitors welcome and I don't want to get shot lol.

Then go for it, if you can!! When you approach the 'owners' of that poor sweet thing, be genuine and as 'nonchalant' as possible - don't exchange names, etc. unless you think a sale is happening. That way, if they refuse, you can call the humane society every single day afterwards until they re-home him - make yourself "The squeaky wheel that gets the grease". Best of luck, and good for you to care for this poor little guy :)
**Just saw your reply about their "residence"..... Maybe walk up casually and say, "Hey, that's a cool horse you have! I'll give you $50.00 for him!" Scratch something out on paper, give them the money and take him away on the spot.....

The best type, bring someone with you, preferably male, go up to the trailer offer them whatever you can afford to offer them. They will probably take it so they can get their next fix on whatever drug they are taking. Get the horse out of there and then keep reporting them!

Sad but may be true. Cash talks. I'd say keep an extra fifty in smaller bills, crumpled and sad looking. Prepare to offer 100, and say that's all you have. Don't dress nice. And definitely bring a tougher male with you.

Well let me talk to the humane society first as I could use their financial resources. Rehabbing a horse this emaciated is going to be expensive with shots and feed and vet bills etc. Plus there is the possibility of this horse having a disease or something contagious. I wouldn't want him anywhere near horses till we got him vet checked and coggins pulled.

Good advice dlpark2! Once you get that horse out of there, though, I'd take a deep breath and be done with those people!!- then put your focus on getting that poor thing back to health :)

^^ I agree with that.

If you go up there with any kinda attitude will be a disaster. Don't even mention anying wrong with the horse at all.

G'luck... Poor guy needs it.

If you think they're keeping fighting roosters there, then don't go anywhere near that trailer without a deputy. You could end up in deep.......stuff, regardless if you have a guy with you or not.

Also, remember that Oklahoma is a very strong "Property Owner's Rights" state and that there really isn't much that can be done legally if they have food and water on the premises. The law says they have to have food and water, doesn't say they actually have to feed it. Rescuing horses is TOUGH in this state. Be very very careful.

I know that is exactly why I'm hesitant to go there at all. I'd rather work with the humane society and sheriffs department. I'd rather not get mixed up in something bad. I was nervous just getting this picture taken even though I was in my car on the road. I was pretty sure no one was home but you never know.
