Definitely call animal control or the police. If they won't do anything, don't give up. Keep trying to convince them. Get other people in on it as well, have them call too, if they won't do anything. Take pictures and videos.
I too know the "neighbors won't care for horse situation." It took at least four different people calling animal control, repetitively, before the ignorant folks decided to come. As soon as they came, they realized the animals were 1/4 a leg deep in mud, and that the mare was very skinny and wormy. They finally told them if they didn't fix the problem in 30 days, they would take the horses away.
The owners decided to sell the horses. We took the mare and her colt- Now named Dixie and Maverick-for only $200. The other horse, a stallion we couldn't take because we lacked the experience or facility to handle both a stallion AND a mare TOGETHER, apparently wouldn't have had to go because he was still in good condition, still wound up being sold to someone else.
I really hope you can get him out of there soon.
Have a blessed day!
