I couldn't watch. When I saw the eye moving on that poor horse, and it was still alive, that was just too much for me.

And how do the remaining horses still have tails? The starved ones I've taken in chewed each others tails off. Had these been stalled and neglected?

And there was hay onsite.

Hope somebody keeps the rest of us informed as the story unfolds.
There is acreage in Poland. Plenty, well- producing " fat" pastures. Dirtcheap.........

Urgh this is so disgusting. I've paused on the horse that's strapped to some sort of dirty belly band thing...

Can we all just go wail on this guy? What kind of sick twisted jerkoff is he for neglecting, mistreating, and abandoning these horses like this?

Several decades ago, one of the heirs of the Gucci family had here in US a whole barn full of wonderful Arabian horses. He was in some sort of tax trouble (I think, been 30 years or so???) and fled to Europe.

Leaving behind, with no money to care for them, all of the horses.

The grooms were buying food out of their own pockets, until their money was running out. The people in charge of seizing everything would not give them money to feed the horses, and it was horrific.

Don't know whatever happened, but it was in People magazine.

Horses make me a better person.

I was referring to the size of the average holding in Poland compared to what is here.

Surely 300 horses kept on even 800 or a 1,000 acres would be seen by people. Comparing that with pastures here that are 8,000 and more acres on a 50, 60, and 100,000 acre ranches where they could be out of sight. Were all 300 in that type of condition?

As I noted, there is no excuse. I just think more will come out on this horrid event. I can't imagine anyone not stepping up for the horses' sakes.

Palomine there was a time when horse breeders got incredible tax writeoffs. Kenny Rogers was into Arabians then, beautiful air conditioned barn. The the gov't in it's wisdom change the tax rules and the Arabian market took a nose dive. Many were suddenly out of business.

That horse whinnying on the ground pulls my heart strings. I want to take him home and feed him. He will likely need to be in a sling like the horse later in the video if he is to have a chance at survival at all.

What's so sad is that these horses have bed sores. So they have been weak and starving and laying around for a long, long time. Gosh, I just want to bring them home and feed them and nurse them. I know some are in such bad shape they are probably better off dead, but I really want to show them love and groceries.

This is absolutely tragic. how could these poor animals suffer like this? And they had love for humans still.. heartbreaking...
