Authorities in central Minnesota are trying to track down the owner of a miniature horse that was found wandering Stearns County Thursday morning.

A resident came across the horse walking along County Road 44, near 13th Avenue in Fairhaven Township.

Described as sorrel in color with a "light-colored mane and tail," the gelding was not wearing a halter, nor did it have any other identifying items.

Anyone with information about the owner should call police at 320-251-4240.

As big "Parks and Recreation" fans, we couldn't help but notice the horse bears more than a passing resemblance to Li'l Sebastian.
