An animal neglect case that's been ongoing since the summer of 2009, came to a close this week.

The Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society, head-quartered in the B-CS area, recently seized 12 horses in northeast Texas.

The horse owners were given several opportunities to make improvements, but earlier this month, Sheriff's deputies served them warrant for the horses to be removed from the property.

They are emaciated, some in critical condition and undergoing rehabilitation.

Unfortunately, these twelve horses are just the tip of the iceberg. Bluebonnet rep says several other counties need their help seizing horses, but they need more foster homes - they don't have enough right now.
