Stallions and Mares

Stallions and Mares

Before
Four stallons, one colt and three mares were rescued in Jo Daviess county. ThisSimply unbelievable impoundment came after numerous complaints were filed against the owner with HAHS. A notice of violation was totally ignored and the neglect, which has been going on for an apparent long time, has finally ended. Thanks to the caring  people that continued to call us, thanks to our investigator that kept following up on the situation and thanks to the States Attorney, the Sheriff and  local people that assisted with this emergency impoundment; these horses, for the first time in a very long time, have a clean and warm place to sleep, with plenty of food, water and long needed veterinary care and de-worming. It will be a long road to recovery.

After
No more hungerAt rehab since impoundment in early July, the judge now released all of these horses back to the owner, however, under the supervision of the HAHS investigator. When visiting the facility where the horses came from and while making sure that everything is set up for the return of them, it turned out that the pasture, waterbuckets and feed was in complete disarray. Fortunately, the investigator convinced the owner to at least relinquish 3 of the horses to HAHS so that they can have a better life.
