GREENFIELD, N.Y. -- As freezing cold temperatures continue neighbors in Greenfield are concerned not for themselves but for horses on a property where in the past they've seen horses taken away in bad condition.
"We've called the Town of Greenfield. We've called the District Attorney. We've called State Police," said Mark Cassier of Greenfield.
Neighbors like Mark Cassier continue to feel helpless as they voice concern for horses in Greenfield on a property where 58-year-old Ann Arnold has had horses taken away from for animal cruelty in the past. Last year Arnold was convicted of animal cruelty for the treatment of 23 horses in her care, and she now faces court again for an alleged violation of her probation.
"It just seems like the process is so slow and nothing is being done," said Cassier.
In terms of Arnold's probation horses cannot be on the property for three years but currently the Saratoga County District Attorneys Office says around 17 horses remain there.
"With temperatures going down below zero and yet they're still standing out there without shelter," said Cassier.
"I mean it's just the shelter issue. I wish they could provide them more like a barn type horse farm that is the main thing," said Leo Gonzalo of Greenfield.
Arnold faces probation violation charges and will be in the Town of Providence court Monday.
"We have been informed that the property has changed hands and that the horses may or may not have changed hands but I believe the court was pretty specific that there shouldn't be any horses on the property for a three year period," said Greenfield Town Supervisor Dick Rowland.
Neighbors and the Town Supervisor want to see the order enforced.
"There is no shelter there. There is no barns or stalls or anything like that. The animals are out in the weather. The property is too small to manage the amount of horses that are on there," said Rowland.
Arnold will be in the town of Providence court on Monday regarding violation of probation charges. The DA says Arnold failed to complete a mental evaluation, pay restitution she owed, and violated her probation by having horses on the property.
Rowland says the town is moving forward with its own violation against the property, saying there are unregistered vehicles and debris located on the property.
NEWS 10 attempted to ask for comment from Arnold or anyone at the property Thursday, but there are 'No Trespassing' signs on the property.
