 "Christ Almighty" probably had nothing to do with this. That is why  there called "morons".   Dead

    What a bunch of morons.  Not only for abusing animals that trusted them, but apparently blowing a $40 million lotto jackpot.  If we do the math, they probably ended up with $10 million net (after taxes), if they took it in a lump sum.  How in the hell do you blow $10 million in 10 years?  Christ almighty; that's blowing through a million a year for a decade.  I don't think I could spend that much if I tried...

    yes,could'nt agree more, this just reinforces my notion that if money comes to fast,

    then you need to slow down. they should never be permitted to own animals again,of any kind.

    philly. eagles quarterback vick is still trying to get court to allow him to have a dog.

    no mike, you're lucky you still have a high paying job.

      thats what the good ones do, they find a lotto winner, and end up on a tropical island with the money the lotto winner lost. 

      i actually have sympathy for the lotto winners,... now hear me out. befe you curse me.

       

      they prob are just every day scmoes like you ands me, and winning the lotto is supposed to be the  best thing in their lives right?

      look at them now! like some one said " how the hell "  they are prob asking the same questions of themselves. 12 horses, why have 12, when you could have 1, and see if you like the responsibilty.

      because theres no one to say no to you any more. and as you are a lotto winner EVERYONE will extend you credit until you are broke.

      imagine winning $10M clear and being told you need to go on a budget!  wellthse people obiously needed to be told that.

       

      oh i fee lfor the horse,  but there are many more  mistreated horses out there, what brought this to ourr attention? the fact it was a lotto winner.

      what about the 100's of other mistreated horses that have owners that didnt win lotto? do we care about them? do we hear?

       

      sure its a tradgedy, and they should have sold or given them away to good homes before they got to this state if they couldnt afford  to keep them.

      i aint condemning the people, o ill pity them., and ill look at their  situation and use it as a tough lesson about  what not to do if i strike it rich.

      sav. see above, need to go slow.

        heheh i see my post was 10 min after yours., i was prob typing out mine when you posted yours!i do tend to take time over what i write, maybe oneday ill learn to hit spell check to!

        i aint forgiving them their poor treatment, but i think i can see ; especially when i hear all the stories about lotto wins gone wrong, how people  get into this mess.

        they have to remember animals cant fight back, or fend for themselves. it is a responsibility.

        so a lotto  motto could be

        god give me the luck of a win and the wisdom  to handle it.

        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

            I wondered what happened to this couple. They don't go into detail, but I assume it didn't end well.

              The article doesn't indicate that either of the lottery jackpot winning Romos are no longer multi-millionaires.

                Having been involved with horse rescues from this type of situation, I can only say throw them in jail and throw away the key. Do you know what a horse with a score of 1 looks like? It looks like a walking skeleton. If the horse can even walk. There is no excuse on God's green Earth that will justify starving horses. Period.

                There are too many rescues out there that will help when you cannot take care of your animals. They are glad to help. If the rescue you call cannot take the horse/s, they will network with other rescues. No excuse for this type of cruel inhumanity.

                This type of story makes me alternate between wanting to puke and wanting to shoot someone.

                    Perfect! Then I'll kick 'em for extra measure. Once for each horse.

                      I am glad they took the horses to a safe place away from the cruelty.  Hopefully the horses will improve and get their health back.-weshar75

                        Sickening story... Running out of money (assuming they did) is no excuse for this. They could have easily put them up for adoption instead of letting them die a slow miserable death. And if they were still rich, well that's a whole other level sickening.

                            +1 to the rest of you.

                            They should get the book thrown at them. Laws on this are not fair considering they might have let a horse starve to death. If you can't handle sell them. Isn't there always a market for them?
