A woman who is on probation because of a Deschutes County 2010 animal neglect conviction has now been arrested in Salem. The Marion County Sheriff's Office says this recent arrest is in connection to 16 sickly horses seized by officials. Gabriel Buckner, 52, was arrested on 16 counts of animal neglect in the second degree.  Besides the court probation from the 2010 conviction of horse neglect, deputies reported another case in 1998 involving dogs and cats. The 16 thoroughbreds and quarter horses were found with weight loss, skin infections, and hoof neglect. At least one mare was pregnant. Buckner is in Marion County Jail on $20,000 bail and the horses are being cared for until a horse rescue agency can take custodial care of them.
