A 63-year-old Georgia horse owner has been arrested after six severely malnourished horses were discovered locked in a barn - with one already dead and another later needing to be euthanized.

Disturbing images released by the Haralson County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday depict the horses starved and dehydrated, with their ribs painfully visible.

One horse on the ground was unable to stand when deputies arrived and had to be euthanized after Animal Control experts were called.  

Ulas Dudley Bolan, the owner, was arrested last week and faces two counts of felony cruelty to animals and four counts of cruelty to animals. 

The four surviving horses, under the care of Jonny Cook, a local expert in training horses, drank 25 gallons of water on their first night in recovery.

In horrifying photos released by the sheriff's office, five horses can be seen extremely starved, with one displaying visible bones beneath its skin.
