One month ago, the saga surrounding over two dozen horses being found dead on a 100-plus acre farm outside of Hebron began and as of April 11, all but one of the live horses has been removed from the property. Wicomico County Animal Control was at the property again on April 10 to round up the remaining 10 horses and was able to catch all but one of them.
According to Days End Farm Horse Rescue CEO Erin Ochoa, no charges have been filed as of April 11, however, the Wicomico County States Attorney visited DEFHR to see some of the Hebron horses that are being fostered there. The States Attorney’s office is gathering veterinarian reports and other evidence from all foster locations, which are spread out in Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. DEFHR took 12 of the worse cases with one horse having to be euthanized shortly after arriving and a second horse being euthanized this past week.
The total number of horses related to this case is still unknown since several of the mares are currently in foal and have yet to deliver.
