LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Lexington Humane Society is caring for 23 Thoroughbreds that were abandoned at a Fayette County boarding stable while another 10 have been placed in homes.

The society’s Ashley Hammond told the Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/22yUipb) the man who owned the horses had not paid for their care in months. Animal control stepped in a year ago, finding the horses were not in great health.

Animal control gave the owner a deadline to claim horses before they would be confiscated.

The horses are still being housed at the boarding stable where they were left, but the humane society has taken over the complete responsibility and cost of their care.

The horses will soon be up for adoption. More information on that process is available at lexingtonhumanesociety.org.
