Montgomery County Precinct 4 Livestock Officers responded to the 27200 block on Northcrest Circle in the Northcrest Subdivision Wednesday afternoon. In hand was a seizure warrant for fifteen horses, seven dogs and five cats.
Deputies had been out in the past and discovered the condition of the animals. They also identified three horses which were dead and had been for several months. One of those horses was in a stall.
Shortly after they arrived the SPCA came in and started documenting and loading the animals. A veterinarian with SPCA found two of the fifteen horses were in such bad shape that they may not make it through the night.
The owner of the horses, Kimberly Ann Adams could face several charges of cruelty to animals.
According to neighbors of this community, residents are allowed to keep one horse for every ten acres of land they own. One neighbor said that Adams formerly showed horses on a circuit and they were expensive registered horses.
Due to financial problems she was unable to keep up with all the animals and had formed a bond with them that she refused to let go of. Deputies say to feed that many horses could cost upward of $2500 a month, even more in the winter when extra calories are needed.
