    Just saw this on fb. The authorities really ****ed this one up.

    Claiming they didn't see or smell any corpses is complete BS. Those horses have not been rotting for a day they have been rotting for weeks.

    I believe it is a misprint as her property is closer to 100 acres with much of it wooded, was the reason why it went undetected for so long, the horses hid in the back. I've heard a lot of conflicting reports, as the horses were regularly getting out and escaping, and that the horses were thin/neglected, the Sheriff denies all but the calls for loose horses so the weight of the horses at the various escape attempts is the big question. Irregardless, this is a huge mess and another one that could have been prevented ages ago if she had just reached out for some help before letting the horses starve.

    Two tracts. 107.98 acres total. What a tragedy!

    After watching the news clip. The huge red flag for me went up when the authorities had been called out to this premise multiple times. Broken fencing, horses roaming the area dusturbing neighbors etc. Someone should have gotten a clue to poke around on the property alot further just to make sure everything else was good, secure....they could have said anything to try to get the owner to alow them to have a thorough inspection of the entire property.

    I read the article and watched the video and like a dummy I read a few comments(I know better then to do that). These idiots on FB were saying things like" Well you shouldn't criticize her horses die of a natural causes and ailments like dogs do" and things like"So what horses die no big deal do not be so hard on her maybe she was broke financially". I quickly closed the comments section and shook my head. I could not believe the amount of dead horses and really old dead horses like the bleached bones everywhere.
