This ever happen to you? *rant*
So, I get off work and am driving home when I get a call that the cops and local HS are at my mother's house (where my two horses live) and need to speak with me.
So, this in turn makes me have to call my second job to tell them I will either be really late or may not be able to make it. I drive all the way down there to find out that some moron called 911 to report that my horses were in knee deep mud, starving, no water, and no shelter.
After arriving it became clear to all that it was a BS call. The HS officer said they had already drove around my mom's property, looked all through the small 2 stall barn I have, checked the field, checked the huge (bright blue mind you) water trough, and looked over my horses, ect. By the time I could get there.
Guess what? They had a full clean thing of water (I wash and fill it at least every two days), plenty of hay (beet pulp, grain, and treats too), nice tight fence line, access to BOTH stalls (made into sort of a run in that separates into two stall areas), both horses are a little pudgy but not starving for sure, and that knee deep mud???? Well it was a tad muddy around the gate area due to recent rains....but knee deep, hardly.
Both the cop and the HS officer pretty told me that everything was fine (after having to show them around again, talk forever about obvious crap, ect) and that maybe I should think about putting their feed (when they are fed and also a round bale of hay) out into the field so that whoever called can see that they are being fed. Wth? I flat out told them no....that will waste it here in the rain when it can stay nice and dry and just as available to them in the barn. They then said that they would "try to trace the call" but not to hold out much hope as it was called into 911. Uuummmm.....don't they have a system that records stuff like that or something?
Sorry to rant...just thought it was about stupid and crazy to have to deal with crap like that when there are actual abused and neglected horses out there.......
