According to the NY Daily News, Rob Thomas is doing his very best to save some horses from returning to their abusive owners. There are two horses being cared for by Pets Alive which were sent to the shelter because the owners of the horses had neglected them and the horses were very badly injured. Rob has been giving money to the shelter, and recently made an offer of about $10,000 for the two horses. The problem is that the owners won't sell them to Rob and it is even possible the horses may in fact go back to the owners.
That would be the worst possible idea ever. OK, not the worst. Lindsay Lohan adopting a child is worse. But not by much. Hopefully the owners will do the right thing, and Rob Thomas gets a big thank you from me and other animal lovers out there. Of course though, he is still going to get bumped here by U2 because I really want all of you to hum it with me the rest of the day.
