(MURCHISON, Texas) -- On October 30, four horses suffering from severe cruelty, neglect and malnourishment arrived at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch after being confiscated on July 3 as part of an Anderson County neglect case.
The Anderson County Humane Society was awarded 32 neglected and seized horses to find homes for them. The Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch agreed to take Chester, Preacher, Senator and Studly – ages 12 to 18 – and have them join the more than 800 animals living on the 1,400 Black Beauty property, including 250 other horses.
According to Noelle Almrud, director of the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, “These four horses are adjusting well to their new life and surroundings at the Ranch. With proper nutrition and plenty of food to eat, they are getting healthier and have put on weight already. We are starting to see their personalities come out as they settle in. Now that they feel safe, they are becoming more confident and curious. These beautiful animals will never suffer again and we will care for them for the rest of their lives.”
