The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office seized 18 horses from a Morrison property May 21.
“The horses have illnesses and physical issues,” said Christine Padilla, an animal control officer with the Sheriff’s Office. “(Most of the horses) were kept in a dirt lot, and there was no grass for them to graze on.”
Padilla also said there is a 75-foot drop on the property that isn’t fenced off.
“The majority of the horses were in poor condition and underweight,” Padilla said.
