Abondoned Paint Ponies..update Pic Of Colt.

Recommended Posts

There is a woman that lives close by that set her ponies loose and said it was her little girl that opend the gate..well after a week, me a cop and another lady wrangled up the ponies..one of the ponies had just foaled..and he was weak when we finaley caught them..thing is her ex husband baught them for his 5yr old daughter for her birthday and the lady don't want them.so she just turns them loose

stupid us took them took them back to the owner..and ill be damnd.. when i was eating dinner here come the ponies running down the street again poor baby in tow..poor little guy. now they just ended up in a pasture across from my house with lots of grass no water..i water them with a bucket poor ponies..they have been loose for 2 months now..time for me to step in and do somthing about it..

eveyone knows she put then in the filed..get this she said she gave them away but she cant tell us who..bunch of bull if you ask me..and the guy who has the owns the pasture dont want the ponies on his place..and i called the sheriff dept
animal control ect.

the mare with the colt is broke..the other one looks very young is saposed to be broke..she has a dog leash around her neck..

bad thing it they are getting a little wild and i can't get her to get the leash off..im going to call the owner of the ranch and ask him about the ponies...and i will try and find them homes for free..if im alowed to do so.

I will post pictures of the ponies tomarrow when they come for water..mama is black and white..the other is like a liver chestnut and white..and the colt is still fuzzy with baby fur and is sorral and white..when he sheds i think he will be black and white..

I will go to the police dept tomarrow after i talk to the owner of the pasture...I need to do something before they die of thirst..

Has the land owner called AC and complained about loose/abandoned animals on his land? I think in a lot of states if there are domestic animals on your land, and they are not offered adequate food/water/shelter the land owner can be responsible. If he has not called in a complaint already, he needs to do so yesterday... If you know who these horses belong to then there needs to be a complaint filed against them. Are they at least in a fenced in field where they can't get hit by a car?

The guy who owns the barn I used to board at had 2 elderly horses dumped in one of the pastures emaciated, he called AC and the sheriff and they wouldn't come get them, but told him he needed to feed/water/shelter/vet them if they remained on his property or HE could be charged with neglect/cruelty... He of course did not have nor want financial responsibility of these horses so he humanely destroyed them.

The first time she let them loose they were in a open pasture they ran to the highway were the speed limit is 65..the colt spooked and almost got hit..acording to a lady that lived by..she went over to the ponies and they ran back this way..

The ponies are on a 900 acer fenced in pasture..i personaly dont know the lady who owned the ponies no..but i know were she lives..when i talk to the ranch owner tomarrow and ask him what he is going to do about the ponies..as of now i know he don't water them..they come to the fence in frunt of my house and winnie for water everyday..

i did get ahold of AC and everyone points fingers on juisdiction sp sorry about ny spelling..tomarrow i will go to the fort lopton PD and try and get to the bottom of this..this is getting real stupid..but i can't just do nothing..

Just make a surrender document of them from her to you and get her to sign it in front of a cop....ask him to witness.

then, you can ....as new owner...get them homes .

be done with her.
