    Our humane society is privately owned,I wonder if they are to? I thought they were who got involved in the big arabian rescue a while back though?

    My cousin lives out that way and works at some clinic there,it might even be them. I'll have to get ahold of her.

    I don't have any room anyway. What a crappy situation.

    Wow, no one in the area could volunteer thier trailers or a place for a couple? Even if a few different people took in 1 or 2 at least the worst ones could be moved for now.

    How sad. I agree with 4kids...I can't believe nobody down in the area is willing to help out?! You'd think that somebody, either other rescue/rehab facilities, or even just private horse owners, would be willing to help out and get these horse back to a healthy weight. I hope everything works out okay for the horses. Some people just should not own horses (or any animal)...step up to the plate and if you cannot afford to care for the horse properly, find it a new home.

    I watched the video and the young horse (It was brown and white paint foal) couldn't stand, but in the end of the video it was standing and nursing. I hope it wasn't put down...


    So sad... I hate seeing things like this.
