A horse at the center of an abuse case is now in good care in Shawnee County. Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office executed a court order to seize the horse in the 4100 block of SW Gage Blvd. 

The horse is in professional care while Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the case. 

Last month, neighbors sent photos of the horse to a local horse rescue after they noticed the horse with extremely long hooves. Brenda Grimmett is the owner of B and C Equine Rescue and often has people reach out when horses are in need.

Grimmett says that long hooves cause extreme pain to horses.

“He can’t walk. His tendons are being ruptured or pulled in the back of his ankles up to his knees up to his shoulders. It can be fixed,” said Grimmett.

Now the horse can get the help it needs.

There is no word on if the owner will be charged in the case.
