The OLD story only came out when they, AC and Today show got calls about this blasting them for the mare looking like this.
It was NOT mentioned in the articles that first appeared.
And from dealing with people who neglect animals? OLD OLD OLD is the story they all tell.
Pregnancy was accidental. They weren't even there when mare went into labor, neighbor had to call. And this is neglect, plain and simple.
I worked for breeding operations where mares were in late teens and early 20's and they did NOT look like this.
Woman is an idiot.
And the AC I talked to about this? Chris? When he told me, AND this was before the OLD OLD OLD storyline was added, he said horse was fine...I asked him if he had horses, he said he was animal control officer, I asked him did he know anything about horses, he said he was an animal control officer.
Which means, he knows nothing about horses.
It has only been after the outrage of this, that the old and accident story has been told.
Which to me? Says they bred her on purpose, and haven't fed her.
Because if the accident/old had anything to do with this? You can bet your rear they would have been saying that right up front.
And also tells you mare had no vet care either.
And if not feeding mare? How they think they are going to afford milk replacer is beyond me, at 70 plus for 24 lb bucket and they go through that in less than one week with one foal, and have two?
And people want to defend the owner, saying no one should have said anything? Makes you wonder what type of condition theirs are in.
Horses make me a better person.
