Barn Filth And Disrepair

Having filth signifies that the owner doesn’t care about the horses in their custody. But I have also seen inside these people’s homes, and usually, they are just as filthy. The environment is usually also in disrepair, either from laziness or lack of money. Either way, the horse is forced to live in it.

Filth affects horses’ health, most notably in their hooves and skin. Unfortunately, the mental damage is unknown, but when we work on horses in these filthy environments, the horses seem to want to say, “Take me away from this.”  

The lack of respect for horses kept in filthy conditions is in other areas, including their nutrition and training. Unfortunately, changing the environment is never an option, as filth and disrepair are part of the horse owner’s makeup. The only way to change things is to move the horses to another farm, but unfortunately, most of the owners of filthy farms are unwilling to sell or give away their horses. The same is in human homes, and knowing this occurs in homes where respect and love are absent breaks the hearts of those seeing it. Life isn’t fair.
