AZTEC, N.M. (AP) — A horse rescue operation in San Juan County is seeking help after taking in three emaciated mares and a filly from the State Livestock Board.
The animals were among a group rounded up two weeks ago on U.S. Forest Service land near Cuba. Some of the horses had identifiable branding marks and their owners were located, but the mares and filly went unclaimed.
The director of the Four Corners Equine Rescue, Debbie Coburn, tells The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/16Eve23) that the organization needs help paying for vaccinations, feed and hoof care for the horses. Two of them are pregnant.
Coburn says their sunken faces and protruding ribs are indications of starvation and stress.
Last year, Equine Rescue found homes for 30 horses, a record high in the nine years since Coburn founded the organization.
