    Belle looks amazing. Look at that shine!

    Thanks for the photos. Glad to see the horses are doing so well.

    too bad they will allow him to continue practicing law...it gives other lawyers a bad name.

    Amazing series of photos of the rescue, this was the first that I found this link, so I thought I'd share it with others that may not have found it yet.

    I am so amazed at the recovery of these two, they don't even look like the same horses!

    Kudos to all involved!

    I couldn't believe McKay would, with all his financial resources, refused to help in the rescue effort in any way at the time. In my mind, what he did that was thoughtless and inhumane. He basically denied any wrong doing in the press and directly to me.
    I suppose he doesn't feel any shame for his actions. The one horse was only 3 years old and was being used for mountain packing already. That in itself shows what little regard he has for the animals who nearly gave their lives for his pleasure.
    He got his criminal charges eliminated by trading a guilty plea for the mior charge.
    What he has been ordered to pay doesn't nearly cover the efforts of those hearty volunteers who hand shovelled for days to rescue those horses, but at least its something more than a handslap.

    Forever more, if someone abandons a horse to the wilderness, I hope it will be called "pulling a frank Mckay".

    I don't know about that. People don't think all doctors are mass murderers because one of them shot a bunch of people at Ft. Hood, or because another one murdered his family in NC and blamed it on hippies. Anyway, I certainly hope people won't think all lawyers are horse abusers because of this one. We're not, I promise.

    I imagine he got to keep his license because the disciplinary board found his actions didn't affect his ability to practice law. I doubt he's going to have much of a practice after this, though - I don't know what field of law he's in, but I sure wouldn't want such a callous selfish son of a bitch handling my case.

    TAZZIE thanks for posting that link. The best photos have got to be the ones showing the horses being lead down the logging road. I can barely type this post through my tears.

    Thank you to everyone involved in saving these horses. Just incredible.

    A frozen Belle, Dec2008:

    Here she is preparing to parade a couple weeks ago. Horse trainer Birgit Stutz (seated) spent a couple weeks working with Belle. Birgit was also one of many to trail Belle and Sundance to safety.

    This story is why I am perfectly ok with shared use trails - when all groups can be respectful of others they work out just fine for the most part.

    I think Frank McKay's name is mud enough...especially where he is from.

    Great news for those horse lovers who followed this amazing Christmastime story on the forums as it was happening: "The Rescue of Belle and Sundance" by Birgit Stutz (who as I recall helped coordinate their rescue) and Lawrence Scanlon is available on Amazon.ca

    I ordered one as a Christmas gift for...moi.

    Question question about the horse rescue on Amazon

    I went on Amazon.com and couldn't bring up the book about Belle and Sundance. Am I doing something wrong?
