    Michelle, ignore all these idiots. Being left in the woods worked out fine for Hansel and Gretel. I say go for it: if your horse dies, it dies....it's sort of like natural selection except it's not. Rug it up, put a few packets of mints and a spare set of shoes into its saddle-bags, turn it loose and hope for the best.

    If you want to release a horse or cow on government land you need permission from BLM (Bureau of Land Management), and permission from the owner of private owned land.

      Eva, I offered a matter of law pertaining to government BLM regulations. Your answer is stupid.

    Yes, because domesticated horses are not used to having to fend for themselves and living in the wild. That would be basically leaving them for dead as they have little to no chance of survival in the wild.

    • Wouldn't their insticts kick in?

    It depends. Are they getting turnout in a fenced area? That's fine.

    Are they being let out in open woods and abandoned? That's cruel.

    Yes. Both cruel and illegal.

      It absolutely 100% is illegal where I live and everywhere else I'm aware of to abandon a domesticated animal without proper care.

    Well, I'm no expert, but I don't think they're like beef cattle that can free-range and get food by nibbling on random plants. Horses need grains like oats. It would be cruel to leave them unfed.
