Honestly, they can't take the animals on a one visit basis, unless it is OBVIOUS that they are being neglected (no food or water nearby or even on the premises, near death, skin and bones, eating their dead, etc etc) What they WILL and can do is fine the BO and schedule a follow up visit, or they may just pop in randomly. If they dogs and horses aren't in "better" conditions, then they would start talking about seizing animals or getting them signed over (its what you do when you're nice). But they could not seize your horse, because you own him, not the BO. They would also have to get statements from other boarders or neighbors saying that she was neglectful in order to have any kind of case against her, and not just have to return the animals and be done.
So worry naught, Cinny and the BO should be alright.
