Everyone In Manitoba - WE NEED YOUR HELP!! **GRAPHIC**

Well anyone else too that is willing to drive from out of province. There is this nutjob, she's housing multiple horses (boarders as well) and they are being starved to death! Most of you in MB that are connected in the horse world may have been hearing about this already. She has some out on a `pasture`with no food. There are stallions locked up inside the barn without food or water. There is even a foal who has major face wounds that havent been dealt with and a pregnant mare. So far only one horse has been removed. This has been an ongoing case for a while now and sill she has these horses. This isnt the first time its happened with her as well. It is said she moved from her old property and the new people have come across full bodies of dead horses all over the yard.
There are people I know who went in and took photos of these horses. One even discovered a full cleaned carcass in the pasture. Ever single horse is skin and bones.
The animal control officer has been contacted as well as rcmp news crews etc. They have been very slow on looking into this. These horses don't have much time. Since our province isnt doing too much just yet, we will be holding a Rally this Saturday at 1:00 infront of the property at Aesgard Ranch - 9512 Hwy #, it is about half an hour north of winnipeg. If anyone could make it out that would be great! We need to do everything in our power to get these horses safe before more die.

We are prepared for that. Everyone who has taken footage is ready to go to court with it if needed. The province is for the most part ignoring it. Here, as long as there is food and water on the property, they pretty much wont take the animals away. There was a barn that had horses in the same state and multiple horses died there.. still nothing was ever done! This lady has been doing this for years both at this farm and another previously. We feel the province looks at it like "out of sight, out of mind" The ACO and PV just shrug it off and say they are aware of the situation. Animals don't have a voice, we need to be their voice.
She has already put a restraining order against one of the rescue ladies here for no reason really asides from she doesnt want the lady around her. She has also made threats (as I heard from others) to "kill" that lady and said she will poison all the animals. Do you know how that foal got all those cuts.. she let her big dogs go after him. She doesnt care, she lets them chase the horses and bite at them. Its extremely sad and something needs to be done. Whether or not people on here agree or not with what we are trying to do, we have atleast 50 people heading out for the rally and Im sure by saturday we will have more.

There is a problem there but from the video it looks like very thin but not emaciated horses, with long feet but no elf slippers etc. This means to ACO that the animals are not in immediate danger ie not going to drop dead in a week or two , so they give the owner requirements to improve and x amount of time to do it. They are not allowed to discuss the case with you in detail due to privacy laws - so this may be in process, and they "are aware". They are often not keen to seize large animals - I don't know if they have facilities to house and care for them?, so if the animals are not in imminent danger they will leave them with the owner with care guidelines and supervision. It is also a slippery slope when you ad in requirements past feed and water - is shelter a windbreak or a insulated barn, immaculate shavings or deep litter straw, you get my drift. Hopefully this is the case - I have not had any dealings with ACO in this province, just in Ontario.
I am not big on rallys etc, find they can make you look like a hysterical PIA to the PTB, I prefer to try an offer solutions not accusations. Has anyone spoke to the ACO about fostering (I don't think there is a legitimate rescue here)? Organising to have donations of feed and care on standby if they can seize? Can anyone approach the woman in a positive way to see if they can convince her to give up some horses - you catch more flies with honey then with vinegar especially is she is a few fries short of a happy meal. I don't do facebook so if this is all in the works already?
Good luck, if the animals are seized or surrendered I will be happy to donate some time to clean up their feet.

ETA; I guess I am a slow poster - see you are on the fostering/donation path

Sherian, from the videos they don't look all that bad. There are ones in pasture that are a lot more thin, there is a foal with open wounds all over his face and body. There are bones (yes from horses) all over the property that some one got photos of.
As of right now, the horses cannot go to just anyone if they are released from this nut. They have to go to a ACO approved facility and held there for a while then we might be able to get them out into foster homes. Im not a rescue, just really hoping that this can be resolved. We have seen many cases like this ignored in the province and its time for them to step up and do something before more of these horses are dead.

This was an email sent out to the reeve and counselors for the area.gives some info on what happened yesterday and the conditions.

I am sure someone has made you aware of the situation up on PTH #8 about 30 miles north of Winnipeg. If not then I will tell you that there are several horses that are starving and neglected. They have open sores and some are locked up in a barn with no access to the outside. The available pasture is inadequate and there is no supplementary food such as bales of hay for the outside horses and even less food for the ones locked up in the barn. There is a large group of horse people, which is growing larger by the minute, who want something done about this travesty. Several people went out to the farm today to meet with the Provincial Vet and the RCMP out there. CTV news was also out there as they will be doing a story on this. The owner had locked the gates and refused to let the RCMP and PVO in to check the horses because she knew that the horses would be seized. This individual has had previous reports against her about neglecting horses. I don’t know why she has even been allowed to have them again. We are going to hold a rally up there this Saturday and would like to invite you to come. The time will be at 1:00pm at 9512 PTH #8 – Aesgard Ranch. We are hoping that the situation will have been rectified by then, but if not then we encourage you and any other MLA’s to come and join us.
