    Default Horses in peril

    Here's some pics of some horses that reside on the same property as me
    One can hardly walk and is near death
    The other 2 aren't much better
    Welfare agency for animals are well aware of the situation...but are doing very little!
    In fact they were contacted 5 weeks ago and the animals have slipped into further decline
    So frustrated about this...i love animals and this is wrong
    Check out their split hooves
    These horses are STARVING!!
    Not good enough...MM

    I have to agree with you Chris
    A horse is not like a motorbike....when you have finished with it for the day you put it in the shed and come out in a week's time to give it another run.
    Horses need to be looked over each day! They can do silly things over night and get wounded/hurt scraping a fence. Their feet are also in need of constant servailence. Obviously the paddock has not enough growing to keep the poor old Neddie more than skin and bone.
    Who ever owns the Nag needs to be shown that animals need care all the time!!!
    Just do it!

    Kind regards Rod

    Poor horse in the pic is also a 'wind sucker' and has chewed the tops off all the wooden posts
    Poor thing can hardly walk it is that weak
    Never groomed,wormed,feed,NOTHING!
    Same with the other 2
    No one here gives a stuff except me and my friend who has been crying about their fate for weeks
    Because i complained about their health i was jumped on by the landowner
    He reckons i am no horse expert and my opinions regarding their health were absurd and baseless.

    That is just unforgiveable.
    I am not a fan of horses. However I despise animal cruelty and those poor things look miserable.
    Had a neighbor here for a long time who was a serial offender with horses,sheep and dogs. I know he was dobbed in to the RSPCA by lots of people. Yet the RSPCA seemed like a toothless tiger and never acted on any of the complaints. Thankfully that particular neighbor has moved away.
    Can't you go and buy em a bale or two of hay? Hay is usually pretty cheap.

    Default Animal cruelty

    That is disgraceful. Contact the RSPCA, local council, police, local newspaper, local radio and anyone else you can think of to get some help for the poor animals, and don't wait for each authority to do something, contact them one after the other and make a fuss.

    I just looked up where Cedarton is located (inland from Sunshine Coast). Are you in drought conditions up there?

    As an aside, I used to work with a bloke from Bellthorpe, just to the west of you. He used to travel from there to Lytton in Brisbane each day!

    Hope there is a good outcome for the horses.

    It's disgraceful alright
    R.S.P.C.A were informed in early August
    A vet was supposed to look at the horses over a month ago...a no show!!!
    Landowners are very well healed but WONT buy them feed or move them to another paddock on the property
    The owner of the horses does nothing...just denies ownership and responsibility
    Just goes to show money can't buy compassion...MM

    What is wrong with the RSPCA?. They sure don't seem to be interested in preventing cruelty to animals. Obviously more interested in their well paid jobs. It sure does go to show that money can't buy compassion. I could think of a few better fitting anagrams that RSPCA could stand for.

    It depends where you are. Here in Perth the RSPCA are onto horse maltreatments pretty quickly, in fact they are sometimes a bit overzealous. Where SWMBO is stabling her nags a disgruntled former member of the riding school falsely reported the school to the RSPCA and they inspected the school within 24hours. I have no problem with rapid followup but the person reporting has a known history of repeated false and vindictive reporting so they should have known better.

    I'd sent a blanket email and photos to all those current affairs programs, including the fact that your reported it to the RSPCA and they will be onto it faster than a rat up a drink pipe.
    Also tell the owners you are doing this.

    One horse has had the same rug on for 5 or so months
    You can see the ribs through the rug
    I can't get close enough to it to take it off
    Presently raining so the poor buggers are cold and wet as they have no shelter
    The horse in the pics b.t.w is ex racehorse
    Hard to imagine it with a saddle on now...MM
