No Food Was Mystery Disease in Colo. Abuse Case?

Following up on our Feb. 26 post about the Colorado feed store owner whose horses were being starved, there’s some good news. The young gelding nicknamed “Little Big Man” survived and has a new home.

Barbara Wright of Harmony Horseworks posted the good news in her recent newsletter, which provided information about Little Big Man and his former herdmates.

Apparently the two men charged in the case said the horses were underweight due to some mystery condition. However, it appears that all the horses that survived are making good weight gains now that they are being fed. Go figure.

For those of you in Colorado, a fundraiser is being planned to help cover the veterinary care and other costs for the six horses.
