Authorities looking for owners of malnourished horses

The Colorado Humane Society & SPCA and the Costilla County sheriff's office are looking for the owner of six abandoned horses found in a rural area near San Luis, Colo. The 6 horses are described as extremely sick and malnouished were found on Road 10 and Road Z.

The horses range in breed, age and color: a palomino mare (15 - 17 years old); a sorrel filly; a
bay filly; a brown colt; a bay colt; and a grey colt. Several are halter broke.

"We need help from the public in finding the owner of these horses," said Costilla County Sheriff
Amos Medina. "Their condition indicates that they have been fending for themselves for quite a
while, and we hope someone knows where these horses came from."

The animals were transported to a facility for immediate veterinary care and nutrition.
