    No kidding, the video is a tearjerker. It was lovingly created by a gal on the Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary for Horses Board of Directors...

      similar stuff here in Va. Couple of winters ago several horses died/were euthanized from starvation. They were in a pasture right on the road. I called every day. By the time anybody with "authority" acted, one was dead, one dying. My vet, who was called out, said about the youngster: "At least he died with a mouth full of hay". The following winter, the woman kept her horses where you couldn't see them from the main highway. Still, there was a road through a development where one could see them. I drove by at least once a week to make sure they were being fed. They were lean, but not starving. This winter, everybody is fat, so I'm thinking that the pasture is rented to someone else.
      It never gets easier. But when I see anything like that going on, I call and call.

      Only thing more infuriating than an ignorant man is one who tries to make others ignorant for his own gain. Crashing Vor
