*sigh* what should I do?

First off, its not my horses i'm talking of! But quite often myself and my sister ride past another pony who hasn't had his hooves trimmed for ages - and it shows! His hooves look terrible and he has to walk weird to compensate for it. I am not sure who his owners are but it wouldn't be hard 2 find out. I really don't know what to do because his hooves are TERRIBLE! I am not exaggerating - I haven't ever seen hooves that bad. Its not fair keeping a pony like that... is total lack of hoof care sufficient for me to report them for neglect? I don't know what I should do in this situation. We live in a small town so its not in out best interest to make trouble for people because soon EVERYONE would know.... *sigh* I don't know

Do you have animal control? I would think that maybe they could help you out. No hoof no horse right!? :) If you don't have animal control (i live in a small town and we don't) I would call the police dept and just explain what you saw and let them know that you don't want to cause problems with the neighbors but you noticed the problem. It could just be a case where the authorities can "help" the owners get the care the horses need and not take the horses from them. Good Luck I know this is hard, but your heart is in the right place!

It has been rare in my life (Thank Heavens) to feel the need to report someone for animal neglect. That is not to say I have not done so, because I have, With what you are describeing I would look up the local chapter of the SPCA and report this with great haste.

As to being in a small town, no one has to know it was you if you call the county or even the State office.

I would seriously make a call, it could really help out that little pony!
