Candy & Jim Amos – Your horses should be CONFISCATED. Immediately.

Wow. Not only are Candy and Jim of Lightningwind Arabians in Loomis, CA trying to starve their horses (read my last post: https://notabreed.wordpress.com/2011/05/01/candy-salt-i-mean-amos-i-mean-kampmann/), but apparently they’d like to break a few of their legs as well…
What the hell are these people thinking? I mean, most horse owners check their barn, paddock and pasture daily (or at least every other day) to make sure there is nothing there that can hurt a horse. I’ve said it to my friends before… you can wrap a horse in bubble wrap and put it in a padded room, and they’ll still find a way to hurt themselves. Yet, Candy and Jim seem to have the “sink or swim” mentality. Throw the horse out in a paddock with as many obstacles as possible and the ones that make it out alive are the ones they’ll breed.
The only thing that could make me more angry would be to find out they send their old, broken-down, used up, and/or lame horses straight to the slaughter pipeline… This is about all there is left to add to these peoples’ list of idiocy.
Just LOOK at the number of panels laying on the ground! I count no less than seven laying on the ground, not including the pile off to the left.
This is one of the horses my daughters were trying to use for 4-H. I told both Candy and Jim the horses were too skinny and we were getting complaints from the 4-H leaders about the horses we were bringing to shows. Jim told me 4-H folks think they know everything after one year in a program and they didn’t know what they were talking about. Picture was taken in April 2011.
People don’t even have to OWN an animal to know that ribs showing means underfed, asshole.
