This is almost too much to bear… but the person responsible for these horses decided to suspend them from the filthy barn ceiling rather than have their hooves trimmed.
5 horses were hung from the ceiling. 6 others were left starving in the disgustingly filthy barn. A total of 11 horses that never saw the sun, were deprives of food and water (but they could see it…) and some who lost their ability to stand because they were suspended.
5 horses were euthanized on the spot (4 of them the hung horses). 6 are at Bright Futures Farm under excellent supervision and care.

PLEASE, LET US HELP THEM HELP THESE 6 SURVIVING HORSES!
All donations are 100% tax deductible. This is so reprehensible. I am fuming. This is not ignorance, this is cruelty.
Please let’s get together and help! Any amount will add up for these poor souls who were deprived for so long – at least 3 years in these horrendous conditions! Thank you in advance!
THE REST WERE IN DEPLORABLE CONDITION: They need so much help..
Here are photos of the remaining horses. I’ve added a few comments from Bev, their new caretaker at BBF.
HOW THEY SURVIVED IS SHEER WILL. – Please call and write so this isn’t considered a mere misdemeanor. Info below!
A request from Bright Futures Farm:
Call Sheriff Munsee at 814.226.7611 and the DA, Mark Aaron at (814) 226-4423.
From the day we were able to finally save eleven horses that were cruelly neglected. I say we saved eleven even though we had to euthanize five – because, those five were suffering beyond comprehension and we saved them from another day of agony.
There were only six citations issued for cruelty to animals for the five that didn’t make it. By law, there could have been six citations for neglect for the six horses that survived. Furthermore, only one person was cited, yet there are two people who are guilty.
IF you feel justice was not served for the six remaining horses, and if you feel the offender/s should get the maximum penalty allowed by law, please do two things… make a *polite and professional* call to the Clarion County Sheriff’s office and voice your concerns about only five citations, and send a letter with your concerns to me about this. I will take the letters to court and I want to take A BIG BOX OF LETTERS WITH ME. Reference the horses in Strattanville, PA rescued by Bright Futures Farm with the assistance of the Clarion County Sheriff’s office on May 2, 2016. Mail your letter to: Bright Futures Farm, 238 O.d Franklin Pike, Cochranton, PA 16314. If you read this, write a letter. These horses need YOU to be their voice. How many other barns across the country have something like this going on inside RIGHT NOW. You can help get justice for the five that died and the six that survived.
