This is a welfare case that has been troubling me for a while. 

I have spoken to many organisations for help and advice as I am very upset with this situation.

Last year the owners of the field rented out a small patch of land (just about an acre)
The paddock size is just about an acre with no grass. It started with two (2) horses. A couple months later two (2) more horses arrived. Then in September 2019 a couple months after the other two horses arrived, two (2) donkeys arrived. Following on from this, in may the female donkey gave birth that the owner didn't know was pregnant.
There were at one point a total of SEVEN (7) equines on this small paddock. BHS states 1.5 acre per horse, thereafter to add 1 acre per each additional horse. Therefore 1 acre is simple not enough for 7 equines, especially when there is absolutely no grass on the land. The state of this field is also not acceptable on any level. There are broken fence posts scattered around along with wire, tarpaulin, metal rods. Along the fence line is covered with ragwort in flower which the equines will eat as there is nothing to eat in the field. It is not only dangerous but is an eyesore to the public and also myself who has to look onto the site everyday. Along with the eyesore, the smell has become unbearable. It is revolting!


I have reported to the RSCPA and other organisations with no success. I have also been in contact with the BHS, the police and Shropshire council. When I reported this case I felt very disheartened when they dismissed to even have an assessor come out to look. Unfortunately because of this my view of the RSCPA has changed. They have broken the fencing many times (due to no grass and being hungry). They have also broke the fencing and have got out onto the main road (A442) three times that I am aware of. This road is very dangerous on a quiet day and have been many car accidents and near misses that I have personally experienced, so if a horse got on the road not only is it going to be in danger itself but it also puts other drivers and walker bys in danger. Luckily the last time the horses got out onto the A442 main road it was during the middle of lockdown so the big artic lorries weren't as frequent, but now lockdown has eased the roads seem as busy as ever.
I have also raised all concern to the horses owners and also the field owners however I feel as though I am constantly getting shot down all time.

Although three (3) horses and two (2) donkeys have been rescued, there are still two (2) equines on this land. With the state of the field, the state and welfare of the equines only worsened. One equine ( that has now been passed on or deceased a few months back ) deteriorated drastically to the point he could no longer walk or bare weight on its left fore. How is this acceptable?

I also know that the equine owner has been advertising for more horses and/or donkeys, either males or females. Today yet another horse had been added ! Just how in the world is this allowed.

I am extremely upset at the lack of care and the response towards this situation is beyond unacceptable now.
I don't know what else to do. Both the equine owner and land owners are useless is anyone wants to go down that route of dealing with them!! If anyone has any thoughts on what else I can do to resolve this, I would be very grateful.
