Neglected horses of Bill Kiefer in ND need your help

Maybe you have heard of this story in the news. Sheriffs in Morton county found 119 horses in terrible condition and 96 dead. Burleigh county sheriffs found 38 in the same condition and 3 dead. All were being starved to death and had no water. All horses are/were owned by the same owner. He had hay but sold it off when prices went up. Wells for water were frozen. Very sad that someone could do this.

They are trying to line up supplies and people to take/adopt the horses once taken from there. So far, over 30 of the worst have been taken and are at Triple H Rescue.

If you can help, monetary wise or adopting, they would appreciate the help. PLEASE, spread the word to help these horses. We are working with a trainer and friend in Fargo, ND that will be going to get some of the horses. If you can take on one or two, I could share her contact info with you. Some horses may have ringworm or such. They would need to be quarantined at first. Even if you could just foster until a permanent home could be found.

Now, for some good news:

We know Gary. He's a really nice guy. I'm glad to hear his horse was found and he might get her back.

Triple H has a few of the horses.

They just had two of the horses pass in the past few days.

I saw that they had to put one down due to injuries. I didn't hear about the other. One they adopted themselves because it was blind.

I think they have 14 left to adopt out but more are waiting to be taken yet.

The one mare (Sweetie Pie) passed when it was so cold and I believe they found another mare (Smiles) this morning. She apparently laid down last night in the hay and passed during the night

I sent a donation. I am not in a position to take a horse, and I am too far away anyway.

Thank you AlexS. I'm sure they appreciate it.

We don't have any way to quarantine, at least not until spring when the ground thaws. That's what we're working with the trainer on. She thinks she has someone that will do the quarantine for us, then we will be taking on one or two. Hopefully, when they get healthy, we can find a good home for them.

I would live to adopt one or two, but I am too far away :( Will look into sending some money their way, though.....about all I can do from out of state. :/
