I have know this stables for many years but have not always been aware of these issues. Kids running the yard is bad, they do not know basic tack or how to tack up a horse properly, let alone how to pick hooves properly. They bomb around on the horses and I know this because I have a a few more mature friends that have livery from the owner, witness it myself, and also have a friend that loans from the owner. The owner does not care for the horses and I know this for a fact and have a source. The appearance and symptoms these horses show make it clear the “business” is exactly as I see it.
It may indeed be true what you comment on...
Horses tack may not be used correctly but it is correct enough that the horses are ridden and revenue made from them hacking out.
Feet are maintained enough, or not and in the wild excess breaks off or wears down...same on this hack line.
Feet not picked, well if the horses are out walking across varied terrain often much of the packed in yuck is coming out.
Some business owners are in business to make money, apparently this is a lucrative business to support animals and business owner.
The "needs" of the horses though are
Hay, water and a place to rest/shelter may not be to your liking but it is provided and when that happens, bad as it sounds the authorities can do nothing. Basics of care are met, period
If these animals are walking skeletons then you have proof the authorities need to know about.
You still can not positively say a horse is not wormed or vet care for a serious occurrence when what you determine to be serious and what another evaluates a situations severity is going to be very different.
What I can do is far more than many and would not need vet intervention, but...again, you don't own you have no right to condemn.
I'm sorry but you do not.
Buy the horse and take it from this place if you object so much... Do not
invest one cent in any care items for the horse. If she improves one bit she will work harder and anything you bring and leave for this horse will be gone and used on other animals or thrown away and be wasted.
I can't stress enough, the horse is not yours.
Even if you provide proper tack you are not present when the horses are tacked every day they work to put it on "correctly" and can guarantee that anything you give for this horses use is going to either get wrecked, disappear or be broken. Don't,
just don't use your money to benefit the owner of the hack line of horses...
If you are accurate in your comments what you do is not going to improve the animals life but make it worse when it is now worked harder...do you see.
Sometimes doing nothing is better for the animal.
If you can buy and remove the animal to a different barn, do it
...otherwise do nothing much as it hurts.
If you are a minor, then you must
have your parents/guardian make the complaint as to my knowledge a minor, a teen/minor can not
make such a charge against anyone.
