      Here is the story from the Chicago Tribune. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,4103567.story

      A former bodyguard for Chicago Mayor Harold Washington faces felony animal abuse charges after police found his horses malnourished and shuttered up in filthy stalls at his stable in unincorporated Bloom Township, authorities said.

      Two of the four horses owned by Frank Lee, 67, of the 3500 block of West Adams Street in Chicago were so poorly kept that they were later euthanized by authorities, the Cook County sheriff's office said.

      Lee, a retired Chicago police officer, was charged Monday with four counts of felony aggravated animal abuse, as was the stable's manager, Donnie Edwards, 62, of the 1600 block of East 87th Place.

      Lee once worked as the personal security guard for Washington, sources familiar with the case said.

      Abused horses seized from stable Video On July 28, members of the sheriff's special operations unit raided the Bar L Equitation, 1965 Glenwood-Lansing Rd., near Lansing, where they found the horses standing in stalls filled with more than 2 feet of manure, authorities said.

      The horses were underweight, and their hooves were overgrown and bleeding, authorities said.

      One of the animals euthanized had hooves so long that they curled upward, authorities said, and video of the raid showed the animal could barely walk.

      Eleven other horses boarded by their owners at the stables were in good condition, authorities said.
      It sounds terrible but I've seen much worse horse abuse cases. If you can't properly care for the animal then don't have one. Horses are not cheap.
      Life is like a bullet shot out of a gun, it goes quick and you can't take it back....so make sure your aim is good.

        your right, if you can't afford it, and horses cost ALOT of cash, and need to be exercised. so its not just a money thing...its a time thing too.
