48 neglected horses found at farm

By Oregon Family Farm Association,

An elderly woman who owns a horse farm near Carlton faces a felony animal neglect charge after the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office discovered 48 horses that were not given enough food or water.

Investigators probed the condition of the horses following a report that water Sliver Oaks Saddlebred farm had been turned off for failure to pay the bill. Owner Susan Swango, 82, faces one count of second-degree animal neglect, a felony because of the number of animals involved, according to the Associated Press.
