    Thats simply disgusting. Is Titusville close to Pitts? I'm practically you're next door neighbor and it kind of puts me on edge that whoever did this is still roaming.

    It was either some idiotic teens or someone with an issue with the owner. I'm placing my bet on the idiotic teens since there have been no arrests or suspects.

    I am 100% confident I would be in jail, and the ahole who did this would be seriously hurting right now if it was my babies. God some people are just sick. Sick. Sick.

    Praying he recovers.

    Copperhead, it happened in Athens Township, Crawford County closer to Erie. According to his Facebook page, Northstar has been transferred to OSU and is on IV meds and three 10 quart pails of damaged tissue was removed. His bloodwork is good so far and he's under 24/7 watch.

    Copperhead, Where are you at in PA? I'm about 30 min from Pittsburgh...closer to Greensburg.

    I put him up on my facebook page. I just saw another local friend also put him up as well, so maybe there will be enough donors to help him through the rehab he needs.

    I will PM you. I've noticed that we have a lot of PA members here!

    That is horrible I hope they catch the person and lock them up and throw away the key. I feel so bad for that poor horse burns are the worse pain. I hate to say it, but if that were my animal I would have it put down. I love all my animals, but I don't think I could make them suffer like that. My heart goes out for poor northstar.

    If someone set my horse on fire and the damage was extensive, I would probably put her down as well. Mainly because of the cost it would take to rehab her. I don't have that money.

    If someone set my horse on fire and the damage was extensive and I DID have the money, I would have to look at the horse's chance at rehab, how long it would take, how much pain she would be in and for how long, and if she would recover well. I know a lot of burn victims have nerve damage that they have to live with for the rest of their lives.

    It looks like NorthStar might have years of recovery on his plate (just read that). Not just months, but years. I think I would have put him down as well. But his owners choose to keep him alive...and if he survives, he can be a pretty good poster child against animal cruelty.

    His owners are pulling for him though. I hope that if he DID take a turn for the worse, they would reconsider their options. But for now, he seems to be getting the best care he can. We'll see what happens.

    Looks like he's receiving treatment at OSU. That's an excellent facility; we had a mare there when her skull was fractured by a kick.

    According to one of their facebook pages, an anonymous donor is paying for all of his medical expenses. That's incredible!

    Can't post the link (against forum rules) but there's "Donations for Northstar" and "Justice for Northstar".
