Several emaciated horses were rescued Tuesday from a property in Waller County.
The Houston SPCA removed eight emaciated quarter horse crosses, including two ponies, from a property in Brookshire.
According to the SPCA, the Waller County Sheriff’s Office reached out for assistance after discovering the animals were not being taken care of properly, including lack of proper nutrition and farrier care.
The horses are now under the care of SPCA veterinarians and the organization’s equine and farm animal team.
The organization has not indicated whether the owner will face charges.
