On October 30th, 2020 IHR met with law enforcement officers to seize two horses from a residence in Payette County. The horses had been experiencing long-term neglect and malnutrition. When we arrived there was no hay in sight, the horses were on a dry-lot and were seen trying to eat their own feces out of extreme hunger. As you can see from the photos they are too skinny, the mare has a body score of 1.5 and the gelding 2.
For now, Idaho Horse Rescue is fostering these horses until a decision is made by the courts about their disposition.
