A suspect has been charged after deputies rescued two emaciated horses from a property in Calhan Saturday, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Deputies and a veterinarian went to the property on Paint Mine Road Saturday. The veterinarian confirmed both horses were neglected, based on the lack of feed and dental care. Deputies seized the horses and took them to an ASPCA-approved boarding facility. 

The caretaker of the property, 61-year-old Alison Dixon, was served and released on two counts of animal cruelty.
