Two people have been convicted over animal cruelty offences after failing to provide proper food and medical treatment to half a dozen horses at a property in Ellalong. 

RSPCA discovered half a dozen emaciated animals during an inspection last October - and several were suffering from conditions including dental disease, severe dermatitis and in once case a proud flesh injury. 

While a vet's report claims the horses had not been provided with sufficient or proper food in more than a month. 

A 52-year-old woman and 57-year-old man have since pleaded guilty to the offences in court and were handed 18-month good behaviour bonds and ordered to pay more than $30,000 in vet costs and other fees. 

The horses have since made a full recovery.
