Sad for the horse if she doesn't get looked after & I couldn't personally just 'wash my hands' of the situation without doing what I could to change her situation. As per your eg above Sharpie, it would be like delivering a child back into a known negligent or abusive environment. I would at very least, tell these people in no uncertain terms what I thought of them. Politeness be bu**ered by this point.

Loosie, I feel much the same, but working with animals and owners as I do, I am constantly reminding myself that I cannot care more about their animals than they do. To do so is to end up miserable, depressed, hopeless and too poor to care for my own, as well utterly useless to help the next animal and family that might actually let me help them. Compassion fatigue and emotional burnout are not pretty, but too easy to fall into when dealing with innocent creatures and not so innocent humans.
