Horses' owner denies they're starving

Monday, March 12, 2012

The owner of a small number of American Saddlebred horses at a small facility west of Shelbyville denies they are starving.

"I have been cleared of any wrongdoing," Robin Swindle of Highway 64 West said Monday. "I have proven all that I need to prove."

Horse enthusiasts have been flooding Internet message boards, posting photos of the horses and repeatedly calling the Bedford County Sheriff's Department since Friday.

"We are aware of the situation," Sam Sells, director of Bedford County Animal Control, said Monday.

"Things have improved. At this point that's really all I can say."

"She told the deputies she bought the horses already starving and is feeding them back to health," Sheriff Randall Boyce said.
