Woman says horses not abandoned
By Karen Brainard
A woman who declined to give her name or contact information called the Sentinel Wednesday morning to say horses reported as being abandoned on Monday were not abandoned and are well taken care of.
Fire Chief Jeremy Christofferson with Intermountain Fire and Rescue Department said he was heading to the fire station Monday afternoon when he saw two horses on the highway east of town. He called the station for help to get the horses off the highway and then discovered more horses roaming the property.
“They were completely bone-dry, no water,” said Christofferson. Although there were corrals, he said, it looked like the horses knocked the sides down.
Intermountain firefighters and California Highway Patrol officers rounded up the horses and put them into the corrals. The fire department also delivered water for the horses. A CHP officer checked the house on the property and said it was cleared out.
“They get fed twice a day. They’re on an automatic waterer,” the woman told the Sentinel. She said she is in the process of moving out of state and will be moving the horses.
