A horse owner in the Hudson Valley is accused of neglecting at least two horses, one that could no longer stand due to the alleged neglect.

The DEC announced in a press release on Wednesday, a New York State Environmental Conservation officer responded to a location in the town of Durham after receiving a tip that horses were being neglected.

The officer allegedly found two of the four horses at the undisclosed location with extremely long hooves, approximately 10 inches long, and one of the horses was unable to stand.

Two days later, the officer returned to the location with SPCA investigators who agreed that the conditions of the two horses were unacceptable and warranted criminal charges, according to the DEC.

The animal's unnamed owner was arrested and charged him with two counts of a Class A misdemeanor for failing to provide sustenance to horses. Responding officers estimate that the horses haven't had their hooves trimmed in two years.
