We don't know you are "only a kid" by your text. If you don't want to be treated as an adult, post in the teens only. MM wasn't trying to be harsh, she was trying to make a point and I think it worked.

To the emaciated video: the video leaves more questions than answers, but the grass quality around the horse looks quite poor and could have left the horse to starve. I don't know what's happening at the vulva of that mare, but that could have caused issues as well. The horse is in over all poor condition, not just weight wise. I do hope that the owners were contacted immediately, and if the owners were the ones taking the video I would have that horse euthanized or receive serious immediate medical attention. Standing there filming it isn't going to help much of anything, if it's for evidence to the ASPCA then photos would have sufficed. They also shouldn't have disturbed it, ie trying to get it to look at them. The eye on the other side is swollen, which makes me think it had been lying there for at least a few hours if not more.

Bottom line: that grass quality was poor and easily could have starved the horse if he/she was not also being fed hay. This doesn't look like a horse that just got to the dying years to me.

It looks to me like she went down foaling. They do show an area outside the thrashing circle that looks like a pool of old blood. It looks like she has a stuck foal. I kept waiting in the video for the crack of a gunshot to put her out of her misery.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

I think I am right. At 31 seconds you can see the pool of blood, at 50 seconds you can see the muzzle of a foal poking out of her vulva. If she has been down for even a couple days, you can imagine she'd lose a lot of condition very fast just due to dehydration.

There is no such thing as natural horsemanship, because nothing we do with horses is natural. There is only good and bad horsemanship.

That was awful... looks like the leg was broken and or dislocated. How horrible for the little cow. Three months old, ran for its life and got beat up by that Bo guy. Ugh. Disqualified?

I agree with draftrider on the downed mare, first thing I thought was foaling disaster. I also agree with Kevin that that horse could have been at a vet clinic or have just been discovered out in tha field or something, we dont know....the video could also have been taken as evidence for a lawsuit or something of the sort, WE DONT KNOW... The point is to assume something over a short video either tha unfortunate calf or the mare is absurd, none of us know what exactly is going on, what happened before or after the video or why it is happening.
