I can't really see their feet, but they certainly don't look like they're skin and bones. They must be getting something to eat, which is why AC can't do much.
Not crazy about their setup, but what are the laws in your area pertaining to shelter? If none is required, then the AC people have their hands tied.
Unless the horses are being taken off the property and ridden, vaccinations aren't required. They're suggested of course, but I'm pretty sure they're not required. So again, AC has no legal recourse.
I see three (yes, I saw the horse in the makeshift whatever) horses in fairly decent weight.
Their living conditions are far from optimal, but it appears they're being fed and they have water.
As far as AC's concerned they may have no legal right to seize the animals, which is why they're telling you it's 'not bad enough'. Until it becomes an obvious abuse/neglect issue, there's probably not much they can do.
I'm not defending these owners, I'm only giving you probable explanations as to why AC hasn't done what you think they need to. Legally, they may not be able to do anything at this point.
