Well the owner got back in touch with the HS. He said it was none of their business. She told him any emaciated horse is HS business. He said that he just owned the horse for a month. She asked him what he was feeding him and he said he has grass... She told this little lot does not have enough grass to sustain the colt and he then claimed he has hay. He also claimed that he bought the colt that way and he was fattening him up. So many lies, that colt has been there since November and it used to have healthy weight on it. This owner does not give me much hope for redemption. The HS is going to monitor if he is getting hay and water. Some people should not own animals. Posted via Mobile Device
I hope the HS issued an order. In cases like this the courts do stand behind the HS. Without the order the HS is just blowing hot air. If they don't do a follow up, remind them that they are supported by donations and it would be a shame if most of them dried up as there goes someone's job.
