So there is a "animal rescue" about 15 minutes away from where I live. I was going to adopt a horse from there and kept in contact with the owner and operator. So I was heading out to find a horse I could give a great home. But was very disappointed when I drove up to the run down "rescue" and saw way too many horses in one area that had boards and wires sticking out of the ground. The horses were standing in more than 5 feet of mud. There was one area at the place that just housed stallions in a big dry lot pasture. All had knots in the manes, tails and scars all over there bodies. Some other areas had ten horses in a area no bigger that a 25 foot area. There were horses that were so sick, had injuries or that were so old that the only escape would be death. But these horses were left to live in horrible conditions. It makes me sad to see someone treat animals like this and call it a shelter/rescue. He should know what is best for these horses but time and time again he gets turned in for starving, neglecting and breeding his half crippled horses to his stallions. He is'nt a rescue his a horder.. its sad. None of the horses on the property are sound, healthy or adoptable. If any of you have seen Dances with Wolves. The horse in the movie by the name of Blue MaGoo ended up in this shelter half starved and on deaths door step. Years later that is the same condition if not worse condition. He's been turned in soo many times. Sorry I just wanted to vent because nobody can do anything about it. I am not exagerrating it is bad...But yet again the owner and operator can get away with it.
