Officials find neglected horses with 3-foot-long hooves

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — The Humane Society of Washington County is investigating a situation that recently resulted in the euthanization of a miniature mare and the rescue of two emaciated horses from a property in Washington County.

The Days End Farm Horse Rescue announced that the horses were found on Friday in an unspecified location, with two of the horses having curled hooves that were more than three feet long.

The two horses were found in a stall with three-to-four-feet of manure. It is suspected the horses were locked up for at least 15 years without proper care.

I wish...Move all their animals and burn their barn down. No more pets of any kind. Then impose large fines and community service hours.

Take the owners out back of the barn and shoot them.

This is soooo disgusting & sooo cruel.

This is why Laws have got to be changed
to protect the animals------As long as
they are deemed Personal Property---the
offenders of such hanious crime only get
a slap on their hands!

Contact your Reps to encourage the Laws
be Changed!!!

Ripley's Believe It Or Not would love to have that horse...or the circus side show. Heck, there are some humans that do the same thing to themselves. I've see women with the same self inflicted deformities on both fingers and toes, in WalMarts, no less (imagine that).
