He doesnt live their, he goes there sometime to hunt but that's it.

I said that because th sheriff said there ours if he hasnt come by then. I probably should of re-worded that

Get the word out, then. Talk to your local tack/feed stores. Post a CL 'found' ad. Be on the lookout for such ads. Put up 'found' posters.

I don't understand your wording at all. First the 'owner is going to pick them up in November' but you 'rescued' them, now they're going to be yours of said 'owner' doesn't pick them up?

I will, now the white and the bucksking are lying down, the chestnuts standing up I attached a picture the white on isnt laying down in it but the buckskin is. And im a little confused here, the buckskin nursed off both the white and chestnut is that normal? The buckskin is eating grass, hay, and grain okay. I would look at their teeth to check their age but they spook at people. I was guessing the buckskin was never weaned, but the local ranch said horses wouldn't milk off to different mares. The white one looks like they recently had a baby, not sure about the chestnut.

The white one is now laying like the bucksin was, and the buckskin is laying flat on their side (i can see them from the kitchen window)

Honest question- are you new to horses, site4pets?
Lying down is normal, as long as they aren't distressed, I.e. Getting up and laying down multiple times, chewing at their sides, kicking at their bellies, etc. They look out of shape, but it's hard to tell anything about them from that far away.

And I'm also confused that this guy had these horses at his "hunting property" but is never there to care for them, they were out for days but he didn't know it, and still does not? And nobody knows how to reach this supposed owner. Well, he sounds like a really responsible pet owner.

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
