MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) - Investigators will meet Thursday to review paperwork in the case of a Summitville farm owner.
It's been just over two weeks since Madison County officials said they found more than 100 dead animals, and just a few surviving ones, on April 9, on a farm owned by Daniel and Carrie Ault.
Multiple hooved animals, many fowl, and rabbits were taken to foster homes after the discovery.
Molly Gunason has housed seven miniature horses, two ponies, five sheep, and a llama for two weeks now.
"The first day they came, I was in tears. It was so hard to see them like that," Gunason said.
She said they came in malnourished, with matted fur and wool.
"Now when you come out, you're no longer sad," she said. "They're so much happier. So, much happier."
But, Gunason says there is a long road still ahead for the animals. She says it could take three months until the animals are back to what they should be.
"She still has a lot of weight to put on," she explained, talking about one of the mini horses.
She says nearly 100 bales of hay, and two large round bales were donated after the animals were brought to her.
"Everybody that's got horses knows it's been a rough year for hay. Without these people stepping up and giving these donations, I don't know what we'd have done," she said.
They are still looking for someone to donate time to shear the sheep.
A volunteer with the Animal Protection League in Anderson says they've received hundreds of applications for the animals, and will process them carefully to find homes for the animals.
She says they're still accepting applications.
The rabbits were brought to Indianapolis, through the Indiana House Rabbit Society.
As far as the investigation into the farm, investigators will send their findings to the Madison County prosecutor's office after they've compiled their paperwork Thursday. The prosecutor will decide on formal charges.
24-Hour News 8 did speak Wednesday evening with the owner of that farm, Daniel Ault.
He said he didn't want to comment anymore on the matter.
