Police are looking for the owners so that the horses can be legally surrendered to the SPCA; and they can be charged.

Silver and Smoke's breeder took her back. I don't know about the other two.

As an owner of an OTTB, that I think the world of, I will never understand people that have horses that 1) can't afford them, 2) disregard their dignity AND health, and 3) think it's ok to just plunk them into the sh*ttiest of conditions like that.
It enrages me. If you can't take care of them properly and can't afford them, DO NOT own them. If you don't know how to care for them, then DO NOT own them. I swear there should be a license for owning a horse.

Just puzzled how the filly ended up in that horrific situation. The article mentioned the breeder taking her back when she suffered an injury as a 2YO, but then from there it goes to the South Florida shantytown. If the breeder adopted the horse out to what seemed like an upstanding, responsible, compassionate adopter, she should say, if nothing else, to stop this person.

Adorable, and they have all their friends with them.

Those are some very good-looking youngsters. Such nice conformation makes me wonder what their breeding might be...some of them look like TB/QH crosses, but definitely a lot of Paints in the mix.

If you go to their Facebook page and scroll down, they sort of say what each foal is. Saddle Horse cross, QH-TWH cross, Arabian cross, Draft cross, Rocky Mountain cross, etc.

Remember Me Rescue is helping to look for 30 TBs that appear to be fraudulently taken and placed into the slaughter pipeline.

Racing name is Daddy Likes That (lol) Daddy in the barn. He'll be for sale at the end of the summer after he gets some more horse show milage, he's been jumping now for about 6 months and has already showed in the baby green hunters twice and was reserve champion once. He's a real easy going guy, genuinely just wants to be a fat hunter lol easy lead change. Absurdly sweet and love buggy on the ground, definitely 3'6" hunter potential, maybe even more. He didn't race too badly actually (~ $50,000 in 18 starts) which is shocking if you know him lol. Any hunter people in PA should check him out :D I ride him every day and all the photos are of me :D I would buy him if I could honestly. I'll be sad to see him go but he's got sooo much potential. He's a special horse.
