Please, contact anyone and everyone you know (the DA) to help these horses and to get something done to the people who are starving them. We need the courts involved in taking them to new homes once they get negative Coggins tests. Spread the word!!

No Tiny they are starving. Animal health rated them a 3, on a scale of 1-10. 1 is the poorest. They need help and need it fast. They are going to die soon. This is not the first time these people have done this.

I have an idea if all the authorities have not done anything then leave these people alone mind your own business and just in case you didn't know trespassing is also a crime

Why doesn't someone of legal authority have a heart..step up,do their job? Do so many just like to see God's creatures suffer at the hands of Man's neglect? Not doing anything??? That's part of the reason why this world is in the shape that it is in.

The horses are safe and well feed, they are all fat and happy now. Paper work has been completed and they are now available for adoption. Contact The Feed Store in Trenton, 731-855-2006.

Dosen't seem to be anyone reaching out to help these horses or the people that are helping them. Everyone likes to talk the big talk but where is the action when it is needed.

These people started in Murry, Ky, years ago, probably before that. They were arrested in Lexington, Ky, then moved on through several counties in Ky. I met them, and they are very good con artists. They left at least 12, probably more dead hoses

There is now a facebook page of people trying to find them. The authorities have done nothing to stop this. It is not that they have not been contacted, by numerous individuals, they just turn their heads and allow more animals to starve.
