METHUEN (CBS) – MSPCA is looking for new homes for two light horses that surrendered to the organization last month.
Fancy, a 22-year-old mare, and 18-year-old bull Goldie were living in Central Massachusetts until their owners became overwhelmed and could no longer care for them. They have lived at the Nevins ranch since November 8.
The horses were determined to be 200-300 pounds underweight. The MSPCA says the horses will struggle to survive the winter if they don’t surrender.
MSPCA-Angell director Mike Keiley said the organization is working on a plan to help the horses gain weight safely.
“They’re doing really well right now so we wanted to adopt them so they can continue to recuperate in our new home,” Keiley said. “Despite their current condition, they are very friendly and sociable with horses, and we believe they will make excellent companions for the right adopter.”
Although the horses have lived together for many years, they are not particularly close, which would have allowed them to be adopted separately.
Anyone interested in adopting the horses can visit MSPCA website.
