The Houston SPCA transported about two dozen horses to its Houston shelter for treatment for neglect. The horses are part of a herd of just over 200 horses seized by Montgomery County Wednesday and Thursday.
The owners, Herman and Kathleen Hoffman, were jailed on multiple counts of animal cruelty Wednesday night, and are each being held on $30,000 bond.
Most of the animals transported Thursday showed signs of malnutrition. Some had open wounds and overgrown hooves. All of the horses seized at the Premium Star Ranch will require veterinarian care, vaccination, and grooming, according to SPCA director Patty Mercer.
