I had the same thing with my ex, my horses returned to me after 1 yr with him skin and bone and covered in rain scold... needless to say I have my babies back and they are on the road to recovery! Now Looking a little light but healthy!
Aussie that story is so sad. What became of the horses? It's funny what ppl can get away with as far as animal cruelty. I was basically told that as long as they had food and water there was nothing they could do. Yeah the horse got hay, but he never fed him enough obviously.
