Mister Ed More than 100 horses seized in Morton County

The Morton County Sheriff’s Department has taken more than 100 horses into its care after finding 96 dead horses at a ranch north of New Salem over the weekend. Sheriff Dave Shipman said 96 of 215 horses at the ranch were dead on Saturday. The sheriff’s department received a search warrant to seize the rest of the animals. On the advice of a local veterinarian, only the animals in the worst condition will be removed from the ranch, Shipman said. He said there is adequate feed and water for the rest of the horses, and they will be cared for on scene.

It sounds like another case of 'animal collecting'. Well meaning people begin 'rescuing' horses without knowing the first thing about caring for them and this is the result. We have had quite a few of these in our area and when we had a boarding facility, we would end up taking a few in and nursing them back to health. Education is the best way to deal with this. Charges seem cruel when the offender was only trying to help, but sometimes, it's the only way to stop them from continuing.

I'll be hugging my horse today. And calling the farrier, which I have been putting off too long. He was a rescue more or less from a home where he was low horse in the herd and not getting nearly enough food, now he's fat and fluffy.

Seems like there's a lot of horse seizures going on lately.

One I heard about before this was Gray Fox Farms and Jill Burnell (home of warmbloods Redwine, Romantic Star and Aloha).

Nasty, nasty situations...
