Eight starving horses were rescued from a Centertown farm Saturday after authorities found three dead horses on the property leading them to suspect a case of mass neglect.“We are still investigating the case so there have been no charges yet,” revealed sheriff’s investigator Jason Rowland who requested the horse rescue Saturday. “The horses were picked up and are being kept by Volunteer Equine in Gallatin.”Rowland went to the farm located on Robert Wilson Road on Saturday after he received a referral from an extension agent.“He had been to the farm to check out a complaint and found three dead horses,” Rowland noted, the finding giving Rowland probable cause to get a search warrant and search the farm Saturday. “We found eight live horses there.”The horses were in bad condition, according to members of Volunteer Equine Advocates, which is a nonprofit organization that renders aid to abused and neglected horses.
