Wow good for you for doing some thing for these horses-- In the letter ask them if they need help to care for them. What is the barn owner's job about taken care, you said you have to give them water? How much dose the barn do for the horses? It sound like the owner may think that the barn is doing some thing care given to the horse. How often do the owner come to see the horse? This may be in the other post I just looking at what is on now good luck

The barn is a sel care facility. The BM used to board his horses there but he's moved them somewhere else. All he does is cash our board checks and gives them to the city. If I understand correctly the city owns the land the stalls sit on so that's why they pay the city. The owner of these horses knows no one else should be caring for them.

I'd like to know what authority she has in the county, before I'd take her word for anything.

I'm not trying to be negative, but you can get in a lot of trouble if you take it upon yourself to just take her at her word. Some people believe they have more authority than they actually do.

If AC didn't think the animals were in any grave danger, I'm not sure what this woman believes she has the ability to do. The Sheriff's Office is required to coordinate all seizures with AC, as far as I know. If it's different where you live, you might want to touch bases with the Sheriff's Office to find out what procedures are necessary for seizure.

If the city owns the stables, I'd think they'd want to know that animals on their property are being neglected.

I've never seen the owner before. But occasionally I'll see Someone he's hired come over and throw a flake of hay in for them.

Try to talk to that person ask him how often he is coming to care for the horses it could be that that person is not doing he's job. This happen to a privet barn owner the person did not show up to do they job just once a week to get pay check-

Good point, Duffy. The owner might be paying someone to care for the animals, and they're not showing up. That happens more than it should.

Ive thought about talking to him once but I'm not sure he speaks English. If I'm already down there when he comes he just turns around and leaves and if he's feeding while I drive up he will wave if I wave but for the most part he just hurries and leaves.

I think it's a little weird that she asked you to write a letter "from her." She should have access to a computer, at the library at the very least. But, if you are OK with writing the letter, I'd write the letter along the lines of 'I noticed your horses are in poor condition' with a few details as to why you are drawing that conclusion, and offer to help work with the owner to determine a proper feed and care regimen. Take it to the lady from the rescue and HAVE HER SIGN IT before you put it on the stall door.

An even better approach would be to mail it via certified mail (the BO should have the address) so that there's a record of the correspondence if it ends up going to court.

You could go to the owner of the horses him self and find out it he know the condition of the horses the barn owner should have his contact information .If not next time you see the "care giver" talk to him and if he dose not understand give him a letter to give to the owner

That's a good idea about mailing the letter. Do you think the BM is allowed to give that information out?
