So, there has been this super skinny thoroughbred horse that these guys don't take care of. I've tried talking them out of him, and they are more concerned about money than the welfare of him. He told me that he was just too big and eats a lot, and on his budget he can't give him what he needs all the time. I was in shock when he said this!
I went to the sheriffs' department and when they went out there, they guy told them that HE rescued him and was just now putting on weight, but the pictures I had showed the officers showed the horse with slightly more weight on him than when they went and checked up on the situation. Now how is that?? If this guy had just rescued him, and had him on a balanced diet to gain weight, WHY on earth would he still be losing weight? Huh?? The guy also showed me pictures when he had first acquired this gelding, and he was much fatter than what he is now. Some police officers don't use common sense, or don't care- not sure which one on this.
Anyway, I have called every rescue, contacted multiple news stations, and nothing has ever been done. They are still attempting to sell him but with no luck because he is so darn thin.
Has anyone had this situation come up before? Where, with clear evidence of abuse, nothing has been done? I feel so bad for this gelding. He is such a sweet boy.
