    "Went to buy a “healthy” foal but it was in such bad shape I chose another.... This guy isn’t a ton better. They had plenty to pick from. Check out all the sticker burs in his tail."

    Seeing these kinds of pictures is never easy. It's not the worst one we've seen, but it's up there. Knowing that these animals get mistreated and neglected in such a way is heartbreaking, but at the very least seeing these kinds of stories gives us hope for humanity, that there are kind people out there who will do their best to help animals who need them.

    We are no experts in horses, but even we can see that something about this baby is not right. We would like to say thank you, again, a million times thank you, for taking this little guy in and giving him a second chance at life. Not many people would have done it, so we are truly thankful.

    "Since there seems to be some confusion LIVESTOCK laws are not the same as PET laws. So long as the property has food and water law enforcement has their hands tied. Reporting is also counterproductive because it can push the owners into making those animals disappear if you catch my drift. We have volunteers trying to purchase the available babies. I did get in contact with someone higher up who has more pull than I do. They are going to see what legally, if anything can be done."
