"It's not willful, violent, nasty…it's just ignorance and negligence. So I'm not angry but I wanted to get them the heck out of there," said Orlowski.
Orlowski said she’s already seeing improvement, and her and the horses are getting along. She will spend two days getting them comfortable, and then start with some basic training.
“They’re resilient,” she said.
She’s hopeful the horses will be ready for adoption in the next few months.
“They’re going to be fine,” said Orlowski.

The horses removed Thursday from the property in the 800 block of West Hyde Road will be taken to a place nearby where they will be cared for, the sheriff said.
Greene County Humane Society investigators removed two horses Wednesday and approximately 32 cats about four weeks ago, the sheriff said. Most of those felines were put down because of illness.
Humane society investigators have been working the West Hyde Road case for three or four weeks, he said.
Fischer said criminal charges could be pursued depending on a decision from the county prosecutor's office.
