I don’t even know where to start…
Meet Monica Thors, a psychopath who, unfortunately, also owned 10 Standardbreds.
Just LOOK at the front end on this poor tortured creature, specifically the hooves (or lack of!).
Psycho Monica apparently had a thing for overfeeding her horses to the point of foundering, then doing her own farrier work, which involved hacking off huge amounts of hoof with various power tools.
Yeah, she does seem to wear that helmet 24/7. And you just have to love her sick ear to ear grin as she mutilates her horse here. Ugh…
So I suppose we can say the woman is mentally ill, I mean who wears a helmet all day every day (and butchers their horses feet)? And she seems to think she has done nothing wrong but use some bad “shoe glue” which infected her horses feet.
OK let’s stretch reality a little bit…if that were the case, MOST of us would get in a trained FARRIER or VET to assess the issue, not pull out the power tools and decide THAT HOOF HAD TO GO!
The ridiculous overfeeding is apparent in this photo. And this one is horrifying:
SMFH-Can you tell I am angry? But although I am angry at this stupid whack job bitch I am even angrier at the (alleged) sane people at the NJ SPCA and NJ department of Ag who t0ok 18 freakin’ months to investigate this madness, while horses were tortured beyond all reason. It took concerned horse people taking this case to social media to get results!
And my hat is off to whomever started this group, and any and all supporters who joined in to bring this foot dragging (ugh-so NOT a pun) by the NJ SPCA to light!
Also to the I-Team, who thought this important enough to cover, here is a short video clip of their story:
Hmmm….is that horse she is lunging not dead lame? WHY does it seem so many SPCA’s have no one on staff who knows jack shit about horses? Does any of this look ok to anyone? Do horses normally travel on knuckled over fetlocks like the poor soul in the first picture? WHY are these things not acted upon in haste? Why the delays that cause untold suffering and often deaths?
Some of the ten horses are now dead. Two, although finally seized, were too far gone and died, or had to be euthanized, post rescue. I cannot find the facts on that just yet but will keep looking.
RIP Aspiration, Prince, According to Hoyle, and Princess Grey…the SPCA failed you miserably. Bad enough to be owned by a mentally ill person (who has the money for a lawyer-yikes!!!) who mutilates your body and causes you pain, but on top of it failed by the very agencies who should have swooped in like a hawk and plucked you out of that hellhole! I would say you did not die in vain, but you did…
