Horses Seized from Aransas Pass Ranch Receiving Treatment
Photos released late this afternoon by the rescue group Habitat for Horses tell the story of how the horses were being cared for.
They are emaciated, have worms, their hooves show lack of care, and they did not have proper shelter according to Animal Control.
Some of the horses are in San Patricio County and others went to Bexar County to be nursed back to health.
Aransas County Animal Control has been investigating complaints for months about the horses not being cared for on that ranch.
The owner was hit with a $2,000 fine. Some of the horses he owned were not seized because they appeared to be in good health.
Habitat for Horses is always on the lookout for a few great people at our ranches. The work is unique, the animals are special and we want folks who both know and understand the special connection our animals need.
