The remains of 49 horses were found on Browning’s farm just outside of Butler, Ky., last month. About 15 horses were seized by investigators.

“It was definitely one of the worst I've ever seen with the amount of deceased horses on the property,” Pracht said.

The county is footing the bill for keeping the horses, including vet costs, grooming, food and water.
Pracht said every delay adds to the time and money the county is paying.

“That’s why we still need the donations because who knows how long this case is going to last if he keep dragging it out like this,” Pracht said.

Browning’s attorney, Stacey Sanning, said she has advised him not to comment on the case.
“The people are dropping them off,” Browning told WLWT’s Brian Hamrick last month about the horses.

Browning denied any allegation of abuse.

“I’ve actually traded ponies and horses for 50 years. I’ve never been accused of starving anything in my life. I don’t believe in it. I wasn’t raised that way,” Browning said.

That’s the same thing Browning said in 2011 when he was investigated when 10 horses were in such bad shape they had to be euthanized. Browning was not charged in that case.
A warrant for Browning was not issued but one will be if he misses the next hearing set for May 27.
