    I don't understand at all. Where were they missing from? Where did you 'rescue' them from? Separate them from your other horse and make sure they don't have any transferrable diseases- although it's probably too late for quarantine now if they've been allowed to visit with your other horse. Could you please explain whose horses they are, and why they were missing from wherever they were supposed to be? I am very confused and it doesn't sound like a great situation all around.

    Well... Pretty much any take-in of the abused, unhandled, or untrained horse is called "rescue" these days.

    Although I say I rescued mine two as well all the time.

    If you can catch them loose on train tracks, I think you can check to see if they're mares or geldings..

    It all started 3 days ago when they escaped from some guys house down the road. We know this because my dad saw 3 horses walking side-byside down the road while he was going to work. The next day I saw my horse staring at something behind our house a little ways away on the train tracks. It was 3 horses. After spending 2 hours that night trying to get them off the tracks we gave up. Yesterday my mom got stopped by the D.O.T (department of transport) on her way to work and they mentioned there was 3 horses in town (they followed the train tracks) that almost got hit by 2 semis and the construction workers couldn't catch them. Later that day they walked back to our house on the tracks, and I spotted them. We bribed them in our feild with hay, and now there here. We tried calling animal control before catching them but they wouldnt answer, we tried calling the local ranch but they wouldnt help, we tried calling our friend but she was out on a hunting trip, and we also tried calling the sherif but nobody knows the owners name. Someone else in town has seen the horses at his house just like we did (thats why were assuming there his) but nobody knows him, they have seen the horses there but that's it. Im hoping he will find that we have the horses and come get them. We told the sheriff we had them incase anyone went around asking about 3 horses.

    ^^ Now THAT explains it. You should of start with the full story.

    I really hope the owner will take them out of your custody very soon as it is rather troublesome situation!

    We didnt catch them, we cut a hole in our fence (which is now patched up) and put a trail of hay leading in.

    What's preventing you from going over to this man's house- if you've seen the horses at his house, you obviously know where he lives- and banging on his door, or leaving a note with your phone number? It isn't a rescue, it's housing someone's horses that escaped.

    And now this doesn't make sense... how do you know the owner is coming to get them by November if you aren't completely sure who that is? And I agree with Charis, if you think they are the guy down the street's horses, why did you not go there the moment you caught them?

    I don't know if this means anything but the bucskin is laying down. Star is in her corral and there on pasture. The other two are standing and eating a little far away. The white one rolled earlier in the mud.

    It seems to me like you're avoiding my questions and suggestions.
