HORSESISTERS & ASSOCIATES INC
September 11, 2013
This organization has been under court orders associated with the care of their equines, for over a year. Even though the time ran out of some of the requirements by the courts, the condition of the equines was so strongly in question that the case has been reopened. The animals are not being fed the amount needed to keep them at a health weight. Emaciated horses have been explained as "new to the ranch" when they were there a year ago, the time I started to watch this organization. An unusually large number of horses are not getting vet care when it is needed, and die or are put down. The most recent was actually a newer addition to their herd (specifically against court orders). The horse colicked and in front of a law officer, they chose not to have a vet visit, but instead shot it in the head. They were visited by BASE as recently as yesterday. The husband has full access to this organization and those that are on the grounds, even though he has been convicted of at least one crime that involved a minor.
I can not explain the other reviews that have been writtten here, regarding how wonderful this organization is. Take the time to review the court documents that are available. Take the time to go to the Brevard County records that are online.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would bring in a true equine expert to run the organization and look out for the well being of the animals, and I would make sure that the equines were receiving adequate food, vet care, and hands on attention.
