The former message was posted against our organization and all we do is for the best interest of the horses. After numerous calls and complaints concerning these 2 stud colts we went out to evaluate the situation. The callers stated to us that the horses had not been fed properly nor given hay in a very long time. When we are called we do not draw any conclusions, at that time we collect evidence with the police, and obtain a police report. Then we try to contact the owners to find out what is going on and let them know that there have been several complaints and see what we can do to work with the owners. If this fails we then go to a judge with the officer and our evidence and the judge grants a seizure order through the police dept. and the police place them in our custody. Everything is legal and in compliance with the state statutes. In this case we felt that it would be more compassionate to work with the family due to their loss of a loved one. That our organization works strictly from compassion not malice. Our goal is to help the owners get back on track and give them advice. Only in extreme cases do we have to remove the animals. There is a video available of these horses that shows there body condition at the time of the complaint which was filmed on Nov the 9th 2007. Upon a notarized release from the owners of the colts there is also a recorded conversation. As of December 26th we are still receiving complaints that this sorrel and white colt has had no hay for a week and our weather conditions have been extremely cold. We have personally drove by several times including today and there is no hay and no grass. We understand that owners will get upset with us but we are only here for the good of the animals because that is what our organization does. We are also building a web-site that should be up sometime after the 1st of the year that will show pictures and stories of just what our organization stands for. We will send a e-mail with our web-site address as soon as it is available for viewing.
We would like to say one more time that we are sorry for their loss especially through the holidays.
Please do not forget your animals through holidays, so please give them some hay.
