WOODBINE, Md. — Animal rescue workers in Woodbine, Maryland, made a shocking discovery during a recent visit to a stable: neglected horses with 3-foot-long hooves living in deplorable conditions.
According to HLN, authorities visited the stable after a good Samaritan called the local humane society about the condition of pet pigeons on the property. There, rescue workers found two horses in a stall filled with manure and transported them to Days End Farm Horse Rescue for rehabilitation. Sadly, a third horse was euthanized.
Days End Farm said in a press release that "these are the worst, most extreme cases of hoof neglect the organization has ever seen." Authorities believe the horses lived in dismal conditions for more than 15 years.
The nonprofit rescue group said an investigation is underway, and the horses' owners could face animal-cruelty charges. Read more here.

PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Donald Trump will not make a planned trip to Mar-a-Lago today because of a looming federal government shutdown, a White House official told The Palm Beach Post on Friday morning.
Trump was scheduled to arrive at Palm Beach International Airport tonight for a weekend trip that included a Saturday fundraiser for his 2020 re-election campaign at Mar-a-Lago. The official who confirmed today’s travel is off did not address the president’s plans for the remainder of the weekend.
Trump was planning to make the 12th Palm Beach visit of his presidency. But Congress has not reached a spending agreement to keep the federal government operating past midnight.

— The federal government faces a partial federal shutdown threat today without a $1.1 trillion appropriations spending budget or a temporary stopgap spending measure in place.
Here’s what could happen in the Miami Valley if a shutdown occurs:
FURLOUGHS: A Wright-Patterson Air Force Base spokesman said this week the base had not received guidance on what actions to take. But the last time a federal government shutdown occurred in 2013, thousands of Wright-Patterson civilian employees were furloughed temporarily. Among those exempted were police, fire, medical and airfield operations. Military service members remained on the job.
MUSEUM: The region’s biggest tourist attraction, the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, would close until a funding deal is reached, according to a spokesman.
MAIL SERVICE: The U.S. Postal Service, which is considered self-funded, would continue operations, including home delivery and post offices would stay open, a spokesman said.
DAYTON VA: The Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities would remain open. The VA operates on a two-year budget cycle, exempting the department from the latest funding skirmish in Washington.
NATIONAL PARK SERVICE: NPS sites in the Dayton region closed during the last shutdown in 2013. A NPS directive issued in September 2017, said parks would close if a lapse in federal government appropriations occurs.

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ore. — An Oregon man is behind bars after sheriff’s deputies said he put his wife’s hand in hot fryer oil.
Jeremiah Crothers is also accused of nearly suffocating his baby son, KATU reported.
Police said Crothers covered his 7-month-old son’s mouth and nose until the baby’s legs turned blue, Oregon Live reported.
According to police, Crothers’ wife hit her husband in the head with a frying pan to get him to let go of their child, KATU reported.
Later, police said, Crothers complained that his wife didn’t season the chicken she was preparing for dinner and then grabbed her hand and put it in the oil she was using to fry the chicken, KATU reported.
When police arrived, they said Crothers was not there, but they saw what they said were burns on the victim and the baby had signs of strangulation and a bruise on his head, Oregon Live reported. Crothers was arrested the next day in St. Helens. Crothers has been charged with attempted murder, strangulation, assault, coercion and attempted assault.
A judge set bail at $217,750.
