A 3rd un-tattooed TB was also seized. They'd been locked in shanty-type stalls with ceilings so low they couldn't fully raise their heads; the stalls hadn't been cleaned in months, and they are seriously malnourished.
Police are looking for the owners so that the horses can be legally surrendered to the SPCA; and they can be charged.

Silver and Smoke's breeder took her back. I don't know about the other two.
Just puzzled how the filly ended up in that horrific situation. The article mentioned the breeder taking her back when she suffered an injury as a 2YO, but then from there it goes to the South Florida shantytown. If the breeder adopted the horse out to what seemed like an upstanding, responsible, compassionate adopter, she should say, if nothing else, to stop this person.
