Ralph Horney is Selling Emaciated Horses… with PHOTOS?

Ok. This one takes the cake. Some dumbass, who’s real name appears to be Ralph Horney (no wonder he never puts his name in ads), is trying to sell his “buckskin” horse in Kentucky… except she’s so thin it’s criminal. Literally.
So, I sent the Chief of Police, Ronnie J. Bastin an email. It is below.
Dear Chief Bastin,
There is a person advertising a severely emaciated horse on Craigslist. The horse is only a yearling, but that is not an excuse for being skinny. Imagine if a one year old child was so skinny you could see every bone… it’s the same thing.
Anyway, I’ve attached two screenshots – one of the entire ad, and one with the photo of the horse blown up a bit.

Please have someone check on the welfare of this horse. My suspicion is neglect charges could be laid. And where there’s one neglected animal, there are bound to be others.
I sincerely hope you look into it. No animal deserves this sort of treatment.
Please feel free to drop a line to the Police Chief asking him to look into this matter. Be polite and he’ll probably take you a little more seriously.
I Love Reverse Look-Up
I did a reverse search and found his name:
At least it seems he feeds some of his horses:
And likes to ride tiny donkies:
Actually, after doing some research on this guy, he does seem to sell a lot of horses, and a lot of other garbage as well. Crappy vehicles, camera cases, and rents out houses too. He also got divorced in 2006, and yes, I have his address. :)
I have to wonder if this guy is picking up horses (and garbage) and reselling it where ever he can. If that’s the case, and he honestly did not have this skinny horse in his posession, he still should not be selling it for a hundred bucks. He should be putting a bit of meat on her bones, and ensuring she gets the care she needs. And then, you know what??? You’d even get some more money for her!
