Thank you for posting. In addition to Community Supervisor here at MH, I also have a foundation that helps rescue horses, so I am well aware of situations like you describe. It is quite possible that the animal shelter to which this woman is associated is unaware of her circumstances and her inability to properly care for horses that have been turned over to her. A call to this animal shelter would be in order to start. What is the exact name of this animal shelter? Let's start there. Let me know.
