People who cannot properly care for animals should have no right to have them.

So many places all over this country that care less about horses. I am terrified they will be made meat very soon if the horse killing factories open. How can we do that? What the hell is wrong with us?

Why did it take 5 years to rescue some of these horses? Why wasn't this subhuman plebeian a*sh*le's name mad public before this. The pictures are heart-wrenching. They should have taken these poor horses to a rescue center when the had to serve a second notice to the ah owner. Horrendus abuse

Frightening, such horrific conditions for the lovely horses. Shocking that as Cynthia B says it took so long to rescue the horses.

Thanx Cher. Appalling situation, but there is some (though not fast enough) progress. It is at least in the public eye and this piece of human flotsom has been exposed. It has been a hectic though productive year so far, with many achievements and successes for Animal justice and reparation, (never enough, but we will continue to fight for those who cannot make their voice heard). For your interest, I have just launched HORSE TALK BY ROSI CASWELL on the KINDLE platform. There will be something for everyone within its pages. I would so appreciate reviews if you can spare the time. With much Love and Peace from your friend Animal Whisperer Rosi XOX
