Horrible. Approximately 20 malnourished & neglected horses at the center of an investigation opened in March. At least one horse is missing.
Also, maybe I am missing something or am guilty of over-romanticizing, but this quote from one of the horse owners, Amanda Scarsella, kind of rubbed me the wrong way. (I’m inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt - cut/paste quotes aren’t always recorded exactly as spoken or may not translate well. It just seems a bit cold, like she’s more worried about catalog pages than starved animals).
“It is a giant web of crap,” Scarsella continued. “It is not just that my horses were starved and one possibly stolen; it is maybe you’re not going to be breeding this year and your mares’ pages are damaged because your homebreds aren’t going to make it to the track.”
