I think I posted this earlier from a different website, but this seems to be happening and looks to be a great possible preventer of breakdowns by actually seeing the start of bone stress and breaks?!

What an incredible task that Santa Anita took on, I wonder if they will have people monitoring the screens as well 24-7?

I would hope so otherwise it's a moot point if something happens?! With silicone valley out there, this should have happened earlier, in my opinion.:) Lets hope there isn't a power outage!

This is a great step forward in KY!!
 

As many of you know, the case of abused and abandoned horses belonging to the Borells brought to light problems that exist in Kentucky that hinder getting proper help for these horses. One problem is that the current laws don't properly protect horses, so Fox Hill Farm hired an attorney who is working toward getting these laws changed.

A second problem is that there is no place to house and care for horses who are in the midst of abuse investigations.

It's a big step forward! I think they'll need to add veterinary services/facilities, not to mention horse vans and trailers to transport?

There are enough transportation companies and vets in KY, that I do not think these are issues. The big problem is a place to keep them till the courts release them.

They are looking at farms and hope to have a farm identified next month for horses to go to.
