    Do these ponies appear to be well fed?

    Do you have room for them on your farm, in case she ever decides to surrender them?

    Do ponies have shelter or barn, during harsh, cold weather?

    You mentioned in one of your first posts that someone whips the pony (during feeding?)


    Does this still happen?

    If so, have you contacted humane society?

    They have those shed's that you can see but it's not enough room to lay down in, and no I will not take thoses ponies in......because of what they have been through (whippings, beating and being yelled at) they are very head shy and tend to bit every one and because I have kids (1 girl 14) and (2 boys 2 and 3 months) I will not risk my kids to those ponies... I did try to sell her welsh a few months ago but she was asking $1500 for a $ 300 pony (welsh stud uncatchable) and that fell through,....i did call the sheriff dept the last time her horse got out asking for the sheriff him self to "watch" from a distance (he's afraid of horses) to make sure that the horse did not run out to the hwy while my husband and I were enroute....he didn't show up... and I was due to have jacob in 2 days.......she wears a halter all the time but isn't halter broke so I had to coax her back to her pen with another pony ...i'm sorry but there are a lot of people out there who should not even be aloud to own a horse due to stuff like that ...........

    Do you have a humane society? Have you contacted them?

    Are these ponies given good food and fresh water on a regular basis?

    They get water and feed every day to my knowlage, the only human contact they have is getting hit or smaked, the paint filly is incaked in mud because she is a fraid of being near her, the other mare tends to excape when she can, they grain her 2x with out any excersice. The only 2 that can be handled get really ancy if I take them out and my sister in law get's nervus (stands way back and tells me to put them away when I let them grazz), we don't have a s.p.c.a in our county and out sheriff's dept want do any thing

    You said you don't have an ASPCA. What about a Humane Society office or other animal protection agency? Do you know if there is one in a neighboring county that you could contact for help?

    I can tell ya if you call them they will check it out and do what ever is needed to help the ponies .
    Here is the no.1-757-622-7382 I wish I could do something in Ks but I am only allowed to work in Ok at this time, Peta is the biggest and strongest animal wrights people in the US and can do things that will make your head spin .

    I was one too up in canada, we never used peta up there because the were over bearing on a lot of stuff , they once protested a circus in our town and a giant mouse attacked a 7 year old child...my boss never liked that.....i have told my father in law that if he want's his ponies (2 of them) to came back to our farm when he moves here, we will move them for him. I saw them today ( pen's really smelled , standing in mud and wet manure) hoofs have not been trimmed in ages (probable in 2 years) they've just been chipping away.....father in law is really pissed about the condition of the place but we have to move the ponies out in a timley fashion so not to make family matters worse....i am goinging over there more often to work with them, right now it's really a trust issue that the ponies have to it's just tuching and petting and trying to get them to understand that you wont hurt them
