Still an entirely different issue than what level of care they might be getting and most people imagine a horse to be admitted to a hospital for 3+ weeks to be a very sick horse needing a very specialized level of care that an experienced horseman cannot provide. However since there are multiple levels of care at this facility paired with a probable lack of experienced horseman/facilities with MHS, like I said, it could just be a horse getting food and shelter. Which again,
That's not a slam against them - they have an excellent reputation with small animals but their annual report doesn't even mention horses, and the numbers of "small farm animals and livestock" they deal with pales in comparison to dogs/cats and even wildlife. Which is all to say they probably do not have facilities or experience to deal with the few livestock seizures they deal with annually. But there is UC Davis, not only with a clinic, but a complete layup/foaling program and two breeding stallions (so stallion facilities - they have 'em). It would make perfect sense to work out a deal with them to handle any seized horses - especially pregnant mares and a stallion, right? Win win all the way around.
