Just across the street from where we found her, is a farm run by people who do things to horses I cannot watch. I have driven by and saw men on horses chasing other very frightened horses. They were chasing horses with lasso's trying to rope them. They had smiles on their faces and enjoyed the chase. The horses were running for their lives. Could this have been what happen to the mare we picked up? This is all speculative on my part. Dr Amanda and I discussed what seems to be a torn trachea. That's why the swelling didn't go down quickly like it would have from poision of a snake or spider. I think the lassoed her, flipped her over. Then saw all the swelling. She may have lost consienciousness as well. Maybe they took her to the back of the abandoned subdivision and left her for dead.
