Well i can only speak from my experiences as Chief Animal Cruelty Investigator for The Humane Society of Louisiana-I have responded to many cruelty cases statewide involving horses. One of the problems i have encountered is that regardless of the supposed turn around in Louisiana's economy there are still many people who have lost their jobs and or homes and that only makes the problem worse when they were horse owners. Most people have no idea of how to take care of a horse ie Hoof care,Teeth floated-feed requirements etc. They look at it as a status symbol and like was stated simply put it out to pasture and give it water-education may be the key. Some free seminars to horse owners would be a step in the right direction.
