PostSubject: Neglect case need advice please   Fri Apr 16, 2010 7:38 am

Who can I get to do something, I have come to the end of my tether?

Two old horses have been left neglected for so long that the oldest in his 30s is now as thin as a hatrack, the other now has feet in an appalling state.
Sadly, these belong to someone I used to know, and for whom I looked after for free all last winter as they had to "run" back to the UK.
These are horsey people who only took home the expensive dressage horse and two ponies now in a riding school, the retirees out of site out of mind and I am so upset and appalled by this neglect. I have spoken my mind on several occasions but am getting nowhere!
Their house is now at the 'huissier' stage, and they have promised me a number of times to take them back to the UK..."in a couple of weeks"...even declining a kind offer of a rescue home as they would not hand over their papers.(which i dont think exist)
As a favour my husband went today to remove winter rugs and was met with this distressing situation.
I cannot take them back here and in any case feel it is vital that some legal action is taken and at least the older one destroyed as this may be Cushings disease and fear he will fall in the field leaving his companion alone.
There has been a kind non horsey friend feeding them out of their own pocket every other day for months now, but I now need the number to call the authorities to have them taken away and treated by a vet and farrier.

Is Brigitte Bardot or SPA the best please, or does anyone know the legalities?

sadly too many owners consider their animals -not just horses- as property or objects, not as friends, having said that many people abandon old human friends too when their life changes.

i wish you luck dealing with this problem, my old girl also has cushings, she is 26y and needs a bit more TLC as she goes on but with luck she is ok,

i don't know if the law in france will act, it seems a toothless tiger to me, i hope cally50 can steer you right, bye.

Thank you so much Cally, you are a gem [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The friend who has been feeding them said it appears someone had been there yesterday but no way of knowing who or when. I will let you know of any developments this end too.

For my friends that were following the case
of abandonned horses, it appears that we have shamed the owners into
taking them back to UK soil at last.....so anyone you know in Dorset keep
your eyes peeled Wink Thanks especially Cally for your unstinting support and follow up, you are a rare gem [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
