I honestly don't think having a halter on is that big of a deal AT ALL. All of my horses have halters on 24/7. I think it is actually much safer this way because they have gotten out before, and if we hadnt had halters on them, who knows that wouldve happened? And horses do get tangled, as said above. It's part of life.

Also, have you tried thinking about other posibilities, such as maybe the horses are boarded there, or its a rescue place, or they are just trying to find homes for horses that are already skinny when they get them? Tey to be more open-minded about the situation, because being pessimistic never gets anyone anywhere.

I have pondered the fact that they may be -trying- to rescue, but the fact that the number of horse fluctuates almost daily, makes me think less of the idea. Their property is all of 4/5 acres, totally - whats the word? Inadequate to accommodate 15+ horses/ponies.

when a horse in expectadly died at the barn we had the poor little guy covered up in the back barn for the whole weekend( he died on Friday) because the organization that takes away and burys dead horses couldn't come until Monday... It's hard because when the grounds frozen ( so u can't dig a hole) u can't just put a horse in the back of a pickup... I do not recomend listening to neighbours gossip. They could be saving horses for all you know. And if 2actually have died, well, not every horse rescued can get better again. And the tree thing sounded like a freak accident. I'm not defending them, I'm just saying... Maybe findout more info before you jump to conclusions :)

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

I mnet unexpectadly in my last post.

They could very well be a foster home for the spca when it is overflowing. 15 horses could have been because if they didn't put the horses there they would have had to be put down

all I'm doing is trying to get a positive look on it. U will never have a good situation if u look at it the bad way based on what other people say ;) I think it would be good for u to just go and meet them..and THEN judge :)

I plan to. But I have a sick idea of what these people are like, from the lady that I talked to when I knocked on her door to get help for the runaway foal.
