Whoever successfully intervened for that horse, bless your heart. Are there any updates about the facility and any other at risk horses?

What a cutie pie! I just love the sweet look on his face. Thank you SO much, Equilove, for the update! Those old pictures of him were just heartbreaking, and seeing him now- healthy, happy, and gelded...well, it just made my day!

Praying that this beautiful little boy will find the perfect forever home! I'd snatch him up in a heartbeat if he were near us. Any news of the others on that farm?

All horses were seized by the metro police and fostered out. I think a few had to be euthanized over the winter, but a good number made it out. Fortunately there were no others in as horrible shape as the grey stud. :)

Glad to hear the authorities step in. It's so sad when someone has a hoarding problem, my bleeding heart feels bad for them in a way, but at the same time, worse for the poor animals who truly suffered from her addiction. My horse Sandie was actually a rescue from a similar situation...

When was the last time the horse was wormed and was it wormed for tape worm. Has anyone asked this question of the owner before reporting them?

Sorry but if the horse had tapeworms so bad that it made him THAT skinny, then perhaps the owner should have bought some $12 dewormer several months ago and prevented it from happening in the first place. Anyone who would just let it get that bad without keeping up with simple deworming practices isn't really doing a very good job caring for their horses, IMO.

So true and I have seen owners that do everything right and forget about good worming habits.

While hoarding has been mentioned, in tough financial times, including when the cost of hay goes thro the roof, people will do what they can to get rid of what has become an unwanted horse. Many will tell a kind hearted person a story about drastic measures that will have to be taken if this person doesn't take the horse. Emotional blackmail. It can be difficult to turn an animal away, especially a horse. People have tried this with me but don't get the response they were expecting.
