Adams County authorities have taken two people into custody on animal abuse charges after the discovery of 34 sick and malnourished horses on their property. Fifty-five-year-old Kimberly Schmid and 57-year-old Sandra Gorman of Arkdale could face dozens of charges. Deputies made a welfare check on the horses last week. They found two dead animals and a third horse had to be put down. Several neighbors and businesses have worked together to give the horses a new home, provide supplies or pay for medical care.
