There are some disturbing pictures involving allegations of horse abuse and neglect in Woodford County.

The State Department of Agriculture says it's now investigating what reportedly happened on some land that used to be a part of the Hopewell Farm.

ABC 36 News spoke with the woman who filed the complaint with Animal Control.

Rena Elswick says, "It's animal abuse. I'm very active with rescue animals. And there is no sense that thoroughbred horses in the middle of Central Kentucky be starved like these horses are."

There's no word yet on what charges might be filed.

The County Attorney is reviewing the case.
