Judge throws out lawsuit filed by horse against his owner over allegations of animal neglect.

Judge throws out lawsuit filed by horse against his owner over allegations of animal neglect.

Washington County Circuit Court Judge John Knowles issued his ruling saying the $100,000 lawsuit will not be allowed to proceed on the basis of the horse being a "non-human animal."A judge in Oregon tossed out a lawsuit filed by Justice -- a horse -- against his owner over allegations of animal neglect.

"The court grants with prejudice defendant's motion to dismiss based on a lack of standing for Justice the horse," the ruling stated. "The court finds that a non-human animal such as Justice lacks the legal status or qualifications necessary for the assertion of legal rights and duties in a court of law."

The Animal Legal Defense Fund filed the suit on Justice's behalf alleging owner Gwendolyn Vercher was neglectful in caring for the horse, leaving him outside and not providing proper food or water.

"He was extremely emaciated -- about 300 pounds below body weight for a horse -- and most significantly, he suffered from penile frostbite as a result of his exposure to the cold and that was left untreated for months," Matthew Liebman, Justice's lawyer from the Animal Legal Defense Fund, told ABC News' daily podcast, "Start Here," back in May when the suit was filed.

Vercher called the suit "outrageous" in an interview with ABC News at the time. She pleaded guilty to first-degree animal neglect in criminal court in July 2017, and says she paid for the animal's care as a result.

But the lawsuit for $100,000 was to be used for further care necessary for the animal's remaining years, Liebman said.

In the ruling, the court argued the case would open a "flood" of lawsuit filed by animals.

Judge throws out lawsuit filed by horse against his owner over allegations of animal neglect.

"There are profound implications of a judicial finding that a horse, or any non-human animal for that matter, is a legal entity that has the legal right to assert a claim in a court of law," the court wrote. "Such a finding would likely lead to a flood of lawsuits whereby non-human animals could assert claims we now reserve just for humans and human creations such as business and other entities."

The ALDF told the Portland Mercury it plans to appeal the judge's ruling.

Brits seal double gold and Olympic qualification at World Championships

 Great Britain secure eventing Team Gold, posting the lowest team score in world championship history

 Individual Gold medal for Ros Canter and Allstar B

 Qualification secured for Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

 Four British athletes in the top 20

The final showjumping phase – which had be postponed by a day due to heavy rainfall on Sunday – caused problems throughout the field and made for an exciting climax to the eventing competition at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games. Rosalind Canter entered the arena as the final rider for GBR with Great Britain in the gold medal position, and individually sitting in silver, on her own and Caroline Moore's Allstar B. A text-book clear round from the Lincolnshire rider not only secured Great Britain as World Champions, but also confirmed an individual medal for Ros, and team Olympic qualification for Great Britain at Tokyo 2020.

Individually, the overnight leader, Ingrid Klimke, had no room for error on SAP Hale Bob OLD and as they approached the final fence it looked like the individual gold was going to Germany, but the crowds' cheers turned to gasps as a pole on the final fence fell and the individual title went to Ros.

A delighted Ros said; "I don't think it's sunk in. I can't believe it; Allstar B was absolutely amazing, he was an absolute hero, I had an amazing experience in there. I kept saying [to myself] just let him do his job, and I'm so proud, he's just phenomenal. There were quite a few tears when I found out which isn't normal for me.

"It's just incredible for both for me and the whole support team behind Team GBR – it's just the most incredible feeling. The team around us is just phenomenal. They make the dream come true really."

In the team competition, Great Britain headed into today's showjumping with an 8.2 penalty advantage – or just two fences - over Ireland, and, after two clear rounds from Ireland's team riders, the pressure mounted on the final three GBR combinations.

After their incredible pathfinding cross country on Saturday, West Sussex's Gemma Tattersall got Britain underway in the showjumping phase, picking up 12 faults on The Soul Syndicate's Arctic Soul.

Tom McEwen, who is based at Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire, was next in for the team and took an unlucky four faults from an otherwise impressive round on his own, Jane Inns and Alison McEwen's Toledo de Kerser. Their completion score of 32.4 penalties meant that the gap between the team gold and silver had closed to just four faults with two team riders left to show jump.

The penultimate rider for GB, Northamptonshire's Piggy French, also picked up four faults on Jayne McGivern's Quarrycrest Echo in the final showjumping combination on course, which reduced GBR's advantage to just 0.2 of a penalty. Ireland's final team rider, Sarah Ennis, headed into the final phase in individual bronze but an early fence down on Horseware Stellor Rebound dropped them out of the individual medals and also increased the penalty gap between team silver and gold back to four. After Ros' brilliant clear round the team gold was secured for Great Britain with a score of 88.8, Ireland took team silver on 93 and France bronze with a score of 99.8.

Great Britain's individual combination, West Sussex's Tina Cook and Elisabeth Murdoch and Keith Tyson's Billy the Red, rounded off their championships with a clear round which pulled them up to finish in ninth place individually, and second best of the British riders behind Ros on a score of 31.5 penalties.

Richard Waygood MBE, Performance Manager for Eventing, said; "It's been an amazing day in the office, really great team work. They all pulled together, they all went in there for the team and stuck to the system. It was close at the end, but even before Ros jumped the last fence I knew she had it.  Our primary objective coming here was qualifying for Tokyo [Olympic Games] and our next objective was to win as many medals as possible, and we've achieved both goals."

All horses are seen by the vet at some point, be it an emergency situation or annually for a check-up and a booster vaccination.

Being prepared for the vet's arrival will make the experience a lot easier for everyone involved, including your horse. The vet's time is valuable but this is also your opportunity to address any minor niggles, particularly if it is an annual routine visit.

Great-grandmother kills 12-foot alligator because she thinks it ate her miniature horse

Great-grandmother kills 12-foot alligator because she thinks it ate her miniature horse

A Texas woman says she shot and killed a 12-foot, 580-pound alligator at her ranch and that she suspects the massive animal ate her miniature horse.

Even before she shot the alligator, Judy Cochran was having a memorable 2018, she told USA TODAY. In May, she became the mayor of Livingston, Texas, and earlier in September she became a great-grandmother.

Now, she's telling the story of her memorable hunt: She killed the gator with one shot, plans to eat the meat and hopes to display the gator's "humongous" head in her office.

She said she doesn't think of herself as a hunter, and she doesn't want to seem like she's bragging about the harvest. But she's been looking for this gator for some time.

A miniature horse of her's went missing about three years ago, and the animal's remains were never found. 

"So we suspected a gator ... it would have to be a big gator," she said.

Since then, multiple alligators have been found on her property, which includes several miles of riverfront. But it wasn't until Monday that an animal large enough was located.

There's a limited season for hunting alligators in Polk County, Texas — just 20 days in September, she said. The gator must be captured on a hook before it is shot, she said.

There was a baited hook on her property, and on Monday, she received a call: A gator was on the hook.

After she shot the animal it was immediately taken to a taxidermist, she said. She said the resources from the alligator are being put to good use: The hide is being made into boots and its meat will be eaten, she said.

The gator was found in the same pond where Cochran's then 5-year-old grandson shot a gator in 2009, according to the Houston Chronicle. That gator was even bigger: 800-pounds, 12-foot-6-inches, the Chronicle reported.

Plea to Car Drivers!

Research shows hay-fed horses may have nutrition shortfall

Says Henrietta Forrest

CAR DRIVERS - PLEASE look at the size of me and my horse compared to this Ford Focus - we are the same length, a lot taller and we WEIGH OVER HALF A TON! You really don't ever want us to land on your windscreen there would not be much left of any of us!

What has prompted me to post this is I went for a hack tonight and met lots of cars two in particular going too fast on narrow country roads - the first one saw me giving the slow down signal and did just that so thank you. The other one saw me (I know you did because I heard your acceleration slow for a split second) then you picked up speed again and went past me at about 50-60mph at no more than 3ft away from us!

I would like to say to you please please read this - we riders train our horses to cope with cars, lorries and tractors and most of the time motorbikes. But a horse sees things you don't like cows, sheep, deer in the woods, poly bags stuck in hedges, shiny puddles - the list goes on. These things they can find scarier than your car!!!. If something spooks them they DON'T run forwards in a straight line they tend to shoot sideways INTO the open road and your car - because to them your car is less scary than whatever has scared them.

You might see a horse walking calmy down the road but if they get scared they can shoot sideways INTO YOUR PATH AT 54MPH - that is a fact. Drivers, please, whatever you think of horses on the road - slow down and give us space. We will thank you with a wave or smile and nod (any rider that doesn't bother to SHOULD).

We wear these flourescents not as a fashion statement, as lets face it who would, we are wearing them so that you see us in time and can slow down and then we all stay safe. So to the driver this evening who shot past us at that speed - enjoy your evening because if we had landed on your car none of us would ever enjoy anything ever again! Please pass us wide and slow then we all stay safe.

Pregnant horses and foal rescued from slaughter after stud hits money problems

Pregnant horses and foal rescued from slaughter after stud hits money problems

An animal sanctuary has rescued 23 thoroughbred horses from being slaughtered for animal feed.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary was asked to take the horses after their owner got into financial difficulties.

A spokeswoman for the sanctuary in Frettenham, near Norwich, said they were contacted by the owner after bailiffs moved in to foreclose on the failing Newmarket stud.

Bailiffs told the charity the animals were to be destroyed.

The horses being looked after by the sanctuary include pregnant mares and a three-month-old foal.

According to Wendy Valentine from Hillside Animal Sanctuary, their owner had already been evicted from the premises.

"Fortunately this is a happy ending for these horses," she added.

She said the former stud owner was reluctant to comment further as he was hoping to resolve ongoing financial issues and move back into his house on the stud.

The sanctuary said it will cost £3,000 a year to feed and care for each of the horses.

Equine Vets believe pharmaceutical specials are essential for equine welfare

How pharmaceutical specials are prescribed under the cascade is a current hot potato but equine vets believe their use is essential to equine welfare and the responsible use of medicines, according to the results of a Moral Maze-style debate at last week's BEVA Congress.

Recent unsubstantiated reports have accused vets of excessive cascade violations yet 81% of practicing vets confirmed that they use specials when unique formulations are not available in licensed form, with 76% opposing the motion Specials manufacturing in the UK will adversely affect equine welfare in the long term.

Pharmaceutical specials are tailored medications, produced in specific dosages and formulations to meet the particular needs of individual patients. They must be prescribed under the cascade and can have an important role in the treatment of the horse given limited availability of licensed medicines and challenges with formulations when using either animal or human medicines. 

The erudite debate, chaired by Richard Stephenson, saw Linda Horspool, Director for companion animal and equine technical services at MSD Animal Health and Shaun McKane, Director at Cotts Farm Equine Clinic proposing the motion that specials will have a negative impact on equine welfare. Mark Bowen, Professor of Veterinary Internal Medicine at Nottingham Vet School and Bruce Bladon Specialist in equine surgery at Donnington Grove took the opposing corner.

With 65% of the audience disagreeing with the motion at the start of the session, two thirds said they used specials at least once weekly. 81% of practicing vets also confirmed that the main reason they use specials is because they are unique formulations/combinations that are not available in licensed form and not because they are ignoring any red tape.

Linda Horspool opened the session in support of the motion stating that as unlicensed products nothing within a special can be confirmed to be pharmaceutically equivalent to a licensed veterinary medicine. With no evidence base a special has not benefited from any safety or efficacy studies, which is especially pertinent in the case of antimicrobial use.

While agreeing that the small scale use of specials would continue to be necessary, Shaun McKane suggested that with no pharmacovigilance the larger scale or reckless use of specials could put horses at risk.

The opposing panel of witnesses pointed out that things go wrong in the pharmaceutical industry too and that given the lack of innovation within the pharmaceutical industry there would be significant treatment limitations if specials did not exist.

For the opposition Mark Bowen first reiterated that there was a total lack of evidence for recent claims of cascade violations reported in the media. He went on to say "specials are there for our benefit. They're there for the benefit of the animals we treat. They're there to improve animal welfare." He emphasised the essential role of specials to support good antimicrobial stewardship citing significant compliance problems with the use some water-based antimicrobial livestock medicines in horses.

Bruce Bladon pointed out that in a resource-limited discipline vets are specifically forbidden to use financial justification for going down the cascade and that the current cascade system is ultimately "not fit for purpose."

Proposing witnesses Andrew Harrison a partner at Three Counties Equine Hospital and David Renney a vet and founder of Nimrod Veterinary Products, reiterated concerns about the potential efficacy and safety of specials and their ostensible 'illegal' use. They also suggested that if more money was spent on specials there would be less money for R&D by big pharmaceutical companies, to the detriment of horse welfare.

Opposing witness Michael Stanford an exotics vet and claims consultant for the Veterinary Defence Society stated "if we didn't have specials we wouldn't have zoos." With a massive variety of species with different dietary requirements and preferences he said it was imperative to have options on medication flavours and presentations. Wearing his VDS hat he said that the VDS does not have any record of a vet being accused by the VMD of misusing the cascade. 

Nick Bova managing director of BOVA UK, for the opposition described the rigorous process of becoming a licensed specials manufacturer in the UK. He explained that in the UK specials were "governed by the same medicine standards and audited by the same regulator as pharma" and that there is plenty of real world evidence for safety and efficacy. He stated that specials manufacturers can fill the gaps left by pharma companies as well as lead innovation with new formulations to facilitate palatability, compliance and efficacy.

The session closed with a significant majority of 76% the audience disagreeing with the motion Specials manufacturing in the UK will adversely affect equine welfare in the long term.

Renate Weller, the new BEVA President, said: "Compliance with the cascade is a genuine cause for concern for our members and this discussion very usefully explored some of the intricacies of its application to equine practice. 

Extemporaneous products, or specials, form the penultimate step of the prescribing cascade, and we have seen that their use sparks controversy. As a non-native English speaker I find it slightly ironic that the dictionary definition of extemporaneous, "done without preparation or thought" be applied to these medicines, since our members are forced to carefully consider a wide range of factors when using them."

The Moral Maze debate took place at BEVA Congress on 14 September 2018. Next year's Congress will be held in Birmingham from 11-14 September 2019. For further information visit www.beva.org.uk

Strangles - don't give it anywhere to hide

Strangles - don't give it anywhere to hide

Strangles bacteria are the cause of the UK's most common equine infectious disease – and they are resilient! 

Although the disease has evolved to thrive in the warm, moist climate of a horse's respiratory system, bacteria can also survive long enough outside the body for items such as walls, floors, tools, transport, water tanks and people's hands, feet and clothing to be a real risk for cross-contamination.

Research published in 2018 in the Equine Veterinary Journal has provided important new data on when strangles is likely to survive for longer in the environment, and which factors help ensure its speedy demise. The findings support the importance of effective biosecurity practices – vital to protecting horses from the misery of the disease.

The experiment saw everyday items contaminated with a small quantity of strangles bacteria. Then samples were taken at regular intervals and tested for live bacteria. Items tested included the sole of a shoe, a bucket, cotton fabric, a fence post and a dental rasp. The same trial was carried out in both summer and winter.

Strangles survived longest in cool damp conditions. In winter, live bacteria was still found at the bottom of a bucket containing a few millimetres of rainwater 34 days after the bucket was contaminated. It also survived on the shoe sole for more than two weeks. This correlates with evidence that strangles bacteria can live for up to six weeks in a water tank!

Higher temperatures and lower humidity were linked to a significant reduction in the bacteria's survival rate in summer, up to two days on average in this trial. This also ties in with existing evidence that strangles is usually killed within 24 hours of exposure to bright sunlight.

Strangles - don't give it anywhere to hide

The study is an invaluable reminder of the importance biosecurity plays in either preventing or containing a strangles outbreak. Good biosecurity includes cleaning and disinfecting any surface that could have been contaminated by an infected horse, even if only as a precaution. Always use disinfectant that is known to be effective against strangles – and use it liberally – while containing an infected or potentially infected horse in a quarantine area to limit the possible spread of bacteria.
