    What really irks me about this stallion is that when he was born (accident baby, first off) she was preaching about how she was just going to sell him when it was time to be weaned so she wouldn't have to mess with it. Then he got older and she preached about how she was going to geld him and sell him before he hit 2. Then she was going to geld him and give him to a friend as a 2 year old, but train him because she's some self-proclaimed professional trainer. Now she is keeping him around to breed her mares and then she's going to geld him. Yeah, right. This lady just literally got tired of dealing with them all, threw them in a field, and is now probably just waiting for them to die. Some of them are actually really sweet, and I'd rather her give them away to someone so they can live out the rest of their lives healthily.. But no, these are her amazing perfect parade horses that are so great and fancy and she wouldn't give them up for the world. Grrrr she makes me mad!

    Call the Humane Society and let them know that if they refuse to do something within 24 hrs, you plan on blabbing this to the newspapers and radio stations, that you have pics of the condition of the horses. That might jar their pickles. (Canadian expression for wakeup call).

    Please take lots more pictures and make this a very public matter! How do your neighbors feel about this? Ask them to help by calling the Humane Society, Sheriff's and newspapers. Put the pictures on Facebook.
    The picture of that starving gelding made me sick

    Fun fact: my neighbor is a VERY opinionated vet. He's a great guy, really. He's called the cops on her before but nothing happened. Nobody really is educated or cares about horses out here so newspapers won't care and cops would arrest her but then the horses would just be abandoned there. We got ahold of the humane society though and I think they're going to HOPEFULLY start an investigation.

    If that picture made you sick, you woulda hated seeing the place. Or how the gelding could hardly make it home. Or how bad the dogs were.

    Alright guys. It's been a few days and I haven't heard anything one way or the other from the humane society on if they are for sure going to start an investigation or not.

    Plan B: because I feel REALLY awful about what these animals are dealing with, I'm calling my 'twin'. (Not twins, we just have the same first names and it confuses like everyone) She helps run the local hoofbeats for hope with her mom, and is also our 4-H leader. I'm going to tell her what's going on, see what she thinks we can do about relocating them if the cops determine that we can, and then we'll get ahold of the sheriff when we have people ready to board these horses and dogs.

    Wish me luck, I'm officially freaking out.

    Call the Humane Society every hour on the hour until going out there and doing something is better than hearing your voice again-"The Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease" mindset.... He's not a vet, he's a "Quack/Animal Abuser". Hope your friend with the rescue can help with back-up from the authorities. Best of luck with your good efforts! :)

    The vet wasn't abusing the horses? I'm confused about the quack comment. Doc has the mares that made the stud freak out when I was leading him. he's the good guy, but he WILL get sassy as all get out with ya. ESPECIALLY if you abuse your pets.

    I'll call the humane society more and I just shot Staci's mom an email with pictures giving her the basic info. I'm going to show doc the pictures of the dogs and see what he thinks we can get done.

    Making excuses, no.

    I'd hound the crap out of people about it if I knew there was somewhere to move the horses to. They sure as heck aren't going to stay on my property acting like that! I just don't want them to be more or less homeless, or just dumping problem horses on random people. That's why I'm working that part out first.

    I've never done this before, it's freaking me out a bit, and I'm trying to make sure everything works out alright.

    Have you talked to the owner ? Maybe put aside the comments, and just go talk to her and explain if she is having problems keeping the horses you would help her place the horses into good homes. Start with that starved gelding, he should bounce back with some good feed and a dewormer, and as for that stallion, removal of his 'brain' will make a lot diff in attitude. Someone may even want him as a gelding .
