    I have found that there is no polite way to tell somebody that their care is substandard. I would politely tell him that he needs to do something and maybe volunteer to help him. If he is hostile or not receptive, I would call the department of agriculture or whoever oversees that kinds of stuff. If nothing happens then, you can always call in the news media. Being embarrassed does wonders. Hopefully he means well and will want to do better.

    True Celeste, I was just saying sometimes a bit of diplomacy may work first, but not always.

    I would suggest checking out your local laws before you start telling or suggesting to someone the care of his animals is not good. We don't have limits to how many animals per acre here in Wyoming where I am, alot of places don't. Heck, around here, during winter, most folks don't even give water and let the horses eat snow all winter, no law stating they have to have water during winter, they can get what they want from eating snow. I don't like it, but that is the law. Heck you can have 20 horses on an acre if you want, as long as they are fed. Junk everywhere, mud, wire, no laws at all.
    So, please check before you go to him and find yourself accused of harrassing someone when there are no laws to back you up.

    Sounds like it is time to try to get some new laws passed.

    We (general we) do not really need more laws.

    Where exactly would you end your new laws regarding proper housing for horses? No debris in the pasture means what? The stuff that falls from the trees when it is windy is debris too.

    Hay rings left abandoned can be dangerous. So will your new law include no hay rings?

    Somethings can not be written into laws.

    And usually as long as there is water and some kind of hay or grass, they usually can't do anything unless the horses are emaciated or injured.
