FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Agriculture has created a new database to help people find horses that have gone missing.

People can browse Internet listings of horses that are being kept and cared for.

The agency says in a news release that a new state law requires counties to contract with licensed veterinarians to document lost or abandoned horses’ features and enter the information into the database. A person claiming a stray or abandoned horse is required to pay for the cost of the veterinarian’s examination and reimburse the person who holds the horse for costs of caring for the animal.

The law also reduced from 90 to 15 days the amount of time a person must hold a stray horse before it can be claimed and sold.
