Neglected ND horses on way to Minn. for adoption


Between 20 and 30 horses rescued recently from neglect on two North Dakota ranches are due to be delivered this weekend to a Hawley, Minn., facility, where they will be adopted by horse owners, trainers and others, Forum Communications reports.

“These are lifelong horse people with lots of experience who have offered to take on these horses and give them a really good start,” said Tracy Tschakert, a dressage rider and trainer in Barnesville, Minn., who has helped organize the adoption effort.

North Dakota officials in Burleigh and Morton counties found 99 dead horses on two ranches, as well as 157 live animals in need of care, Forum reports. Investigators are considering criminal charges in the case.
