McHenry County Animal Control and HAHS went on a case, where people had gotten in over their heads. 20 Thoroughbreds and one Quarterhorse Gelding were on the propert. The Thoroughbreds were too thin, had various skin issues and their feet were overgrown. McHenry County Animal Control and HAHS decided that at least the worst 5 must be relinquished and removed from the property in order to give the others a fair chance. The case is still pending with McHenry County Animal Control.
The Thoroughbreds, who had not seen daylight in ages, have become adjusted very well to their new surroundings with adequate good quality hay, pasture turn-out and are even used to our fences. All are tatooed and under regular vet care.
