Falls County, TX — The Falls County Sheriff is investigating what happened to six horses that were found to be malnourished on property in western Falls County.
Sheriff Ben Kirk had veterinarians test 18 horses in total.
A third of them were in bad enough shape to be prescribed some course of treatment to strengthen the horses.
However, in a press release the sheriff said several of the horses had health issues not related to direct abuse or neglect.
The department is still investigating the property owners who Kirk said have been cooperative.
No arrests have been made so far.
