Dual Peppy, a leading NCHA sire, has been found at Black Forest Barn completely neglected and emaciated. The 22 year old stallion is lucky in the sense that he is indeed alive, however many of his barn-mates were not. They found 8-12 skeletons and decomposing carcasses of dead horses and alpacas underneath a tarp. According to the investigators, there was 4 feet of feces and no food or water for the poor horses.
HOWEVER “the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office tells us that the owner of the horses is not facing charges, but is under supervision. We’re told the animals found alive were not in immediate danger and none of them had to be euthanized. The owner is working on making the horses’ living conditions better and is giving them fresh food and water.” (source)
I am absolutely livid that she is not facing any charges. She deserves to be left to rot just as she did to these poor horses.
ok this is my fucking county, I’ll stop this bullshit don’t you worry, lemme find those fuckers and give ‘em a beating! :( unless there’s another state with el paso county and black forest…..
