Big Oaks Rescue Farm is equipped to provide safe haven for the remaining miniature horses, but it's up to Spartanburg County animal control to take the first step.
"These animals can't call 911, and we don't have any authority to go on the property. We can't do anything, so we have to depend on the authorities," said Mann. "I feel sorry for the old man who owns them, but I can see his horses need help."
The Spartanburg County Office of Environmental Enforcement did not immediately respond to The Dodo's request for comment.
