I'd like to see an actual medical report, vs. the horrified eyewitness
account transcribed by a reporter. Just the tone of the piece makes me a
tad suspicious. Nevermind that a horse being dragged behind a trailer would
end up as so much raw meat, not with just messed up or sore feet. I can
believe the mare set back and dug in initially, I don't condone the
actions of the owner, and he sounds like a gold plated SOB, but I catch
more than a whiff of lynch mob in the reportage.
Remember how many different versions of the horse/bystander accident we
got just recently--and that was with a lot of eyewitnesses...
Complaints regarding incompetence or malpractice are made to the board of
registration in a given state, but must usually be made by someone with
standing in the case--e.q., the owner of the horse. A concerned bystander
doesn't really fit the bill.
