I definitely think you are in ever your head with these three. If the owner (not that he should have them back either) can't be contacted, and the animal control can't offer you any suggestions, I think you need to find somewhere else for them to go. As uncertain as you seem about the basics, you don't need to get involved with three timid, maybe unhandled horses.
Actually im not a new horse owner. I know that the signs of colic and or unhealthiness is pale gums, bitting at belly and side, kicking at belly, laying down/rolling, not eating, not using the bathroom, cloudy eyes, gunk in eyes/nose, and lots of more things. I just want to be extra sure their okay, because if the owner comes and gets them then he might blame us if they were sick. Im going to check and make sure there healthy, if they are I will turn star our and let them start putting each other in place.
Thanks! The forum is to now be left alone
