Here are some pictures of her from today. I don't think she looks any better if not worse.

She is no longer at the place in the first set of pictures. There was no grass in the pen she was in. That picture where she is eating grass is on the outside of the pens. AFAIK she is getting beet pulp (not sure how much) and is just in that field with no access to any hay.

She looks horrid. Worse than on first pics. I hardy believe that horse that thin indeed "wants to be bred". She's too weak.

I'd call animal control personally. There is no excuse to what they are doing. On other side yeah, they are neighbors, so you'll have tough time with them if the horse will be taken away or something. That's one unpleasant situation one can be in.

Ok that's really sad....she's a rescue? Any posable way to get a hold of them?, if not I would call your local sheriff dept and report her TODAY!!...easly done..but that's really can probably e-mail that pic to the dept with a address and some one will take a look at her

Well someone (turned out to be a friend of theirs) stopped to look at her yesterday on the side of the road. I told her that she might have someone knocking on her doors asking why she was in such bad shape.

They are really good neighbors (aside from being clueless animal owners) and I hate to ruin that relationship. This sucks.

Did you try just to educate them then? In very polite, smiling way...

I did but she didn't seem interested. I just reported them. Told the Sheriffs office that I was driving down the road and saw a horse that was skin and bones...that way at least it puts them on the sheriffs radar and me off of theirs.

ETA Of course she probably will just move her back to where she was out of the site of the public...sigh.

No once she's on the sheriffs rador she'll be there for a there any shade for the horse any where?

Just one mesquite tree. She has water and is with another horse that is pretty chunky. (That one does not belong to the neighbor). I guess we will see what happens.

That the other horse is so chubby, means there is probably something wrong with her...did you happen to suggest that she may need worming, or teeth floating?

She just showed up yesterday. THe other horse has been there about a month. They are keeping them both on another neighbors property for $20 per horse/month. Before she showed up yesterday she was down the road at another neighbors house.(the first set of pics)

She said she had been wormed ect.

She just paces up and down the fenceline. It is so sad. I hope the sheriff made it out today.

Get that? I am confusing myself LOL. I don't know why she doesn't keep her with her horses. She has room on her land. I noticed a green discharge from her nose today. I am hoping allergies. I gave her 2 peppermint treats (okayed by neighbor) and she nearly choked on them so no more treats for her. There is something wrong with her back leg I noticed when she walks. I am expecting to go out and find her dead one day.
