Horses found after fifteen years of neglect

Neglected Horses

This story won’t give you confidence in humanity. After 15 years of neglect three horses were found on farm in Woodbine, Maryland surrounded by four-feet of manure. Their hooves had grown to over 3 feet long which made them unable to walk without getting tangled up.

One miniature mare had to be euthanized. The other two were 18 year-old males that will need a minimum of one year rehabilitation, if they survive.

The two surviving horses were taken to Days End Farm Horse Rescue where they are said to be in critical condition. Both animal rescue and the vet attending to them say it is the worst neglect they have ever seen.

The case is currently being investigated and we are sure that whoever is responsible, if caught, will face severe penalties or even jail time.
