I hope Sussman has nothing to do with the handling or sorting.
Also, I went and looked it up. The recidivism rate varies from 60 - 100% according to one recent article.
The Hoarding of Animals: An Update: Page 4 of 4 | Psychiatric Times
Not sure how one can be sure of anything with this situation. It seems to change often.
so the latest is this: (taken from the ISPMB page)
IT'S OFFICIAL. . .
Two SD State's Attorneys and the SD Animal Industry Board have officially filed a motion to remove the remaining 540 (+/-) horses from ISPMB in Lantry, SD.
To prevent the auction and possible slaughter of any of the horses, Fleet of Angels has joined forces with Habitat for Horses- an equine rescue in TX, Return to Freedom- a wild horse sanctuary in CA, and numerous other animal welfare organizations who will collaborate with us to insure that every horse is fed during both the legal process and the adoption process, and they will help FOA insure that every adoptable horse is placed in a good home.
Only with the help of hundreds of people- including all of you who make up our ground crew, administrators, adopters, transporters, donors, and other providers, will we be able to protect all of the horses if they are removed from ISPMB. If the ISPMB horses are entrusted to us to place, it will be a massive, difficult, hugely expensive job, and we will need everyone’s help to be successful.
We’re already at work raising funds for this effort because we’ve agreed to pay the counties all they’re owed to date, plus we have to cover the cost of hay for the horses during this process in order to save them from auction. We will be counting on you to contribute to this effort, and participate in any way you can. We can do it. We must do it. We will do it!
Please read the press release below for details.

Latest is that ISPMB (Sussman) is going to be permitted to keep 20 horses of her own choosing and isn't permitted to have more than 40 horses on the land for the next 5 years. It doesn't appear that her 501c3 is in jeopardy at this time (but who knows).
Irony is Deanna Tierney stating that 20 was too many. Pot, meet Kettle.
Deanna Tierney 20 is too many.

Article re: the settlement and the problems that are likely to ensue.
Settlement of alleged neglect case at IPPMB could set up a repeat
They are currently doing a full scale adoption effort. A limited time for them in SD, then they are transporting them to another location and supposedly continuing the adoptions.
Mares will be foaling soon, hopefully they will get them separated from the stallions.
Will be interesting to see how many Sussman's '20' number in 2-3 years.
Too **** many if history is any guide.
And history almost always (with good percentage) repeats itself
Someone shared this article (from 2015). Pretty much what many of us have been trying to do for a few years now.
