At the very least they will stop in and have a chat with him. Wonder if he has any other horses there. How can you put an ad up with pics like this, if I had a horse like this I wouldn't want people to see him on a state like this. Then again I feed my horses and would never have a horse like this in my yard unless I just got him was fattening him up!

Thanks cowgirl, I hope the horse is eventually rescued from this doofus and the horse finds a forever home where he will always have good feed to chomp on and green pastures to run in and graze on!!! I hope the guy is found guilty, goes to jail and is banned from owning horses ever again!

I just recently got a horse that looked a lot like that. I have taken her out in public a LOT this past month, some people cannot tell when a horse is in bad shape, specially non-horse people. I like to educate whoever will listen, so they know it's not okay for horses to look like this.

I've actually gotten threats of getting animal control called on me, not because of the skinny new mare, but because the fat one was in a yard that had "dangerous kid toys" in it. I.E: It was a plastic slide -eyeroll-

^^^ we had the ASPCA called on us because we were "trying to blind our horses"... they were wearing fly masks and apparently the folks who called had never seen such a thing. ha!

Life seems mighty precious when there's less of it to waste.

Thank you AbsitVita for reporting them if you didn't I would have and I am from WI! How awful to keep a horse in that condition and work with it like they are! And yeah that saddle and all that tack ****ed me off too! I hope they take him away and file cruelty charges! That makes me soooo MAD!

...not exactly sure what "city people" have to with animal abuse. I'm pretty sure "country people" do it too....

Yeah that doesn't surprise me. I guess people mean well, but really... I wish they'd educate themselves before calling abuse on things they don't understand.

You're definitely right, but ignorance does not excuse the pain that this animal has suffered because some dumb, ignorant black guy thought he would keep a horse in his backyard while trying to train the animal to be a trotter and only succeeding to harm the animal further. Should I just turn a blind eye to that? Should I stand idly by and only hope the horse finds a suitable owner? That's bs and you and everyone here knows it. I acted by reporting this animal to the proper authorities because that's the right thing to do....I would do the same for any animal, even if my relatives were treating animals as this guy treats this horse. If you have a problem with that, perhaps you need to reevaluate your conscience and your heart!
