RUPERT, Idaho (AP) - A motorcycle club has donated two miniature horses to a Rupert family whose pony was brutally abused and left to die last month.

The pony, named Patches, was reportedly taken from a yard in Rupert and dragged down a paved road. The pony was still alive when it was found, but it was so badly injured that it had to be put down.

The Times-News reports (https://bit.ly/1G2xKFa ) that Twin-Falls based motorcycle club the Snake River Bros delivered two miniature horses to the three young children of Hugo and Daniela Lopez on Thursday. The nonprofit group’s mission is to help children.

Fundraising efforts have collected some $45,000 to go toward a reward for the conviction of Patches’ abusers.

Minidoka County Sheriff Eric Snarr says authorities have no clues to possible suspects.
