Rescued horses ready for adoption

Posted:

KENOSHA COUNTY (WKOW) -- Malnourished horses rescued from a farm in southeast Wisconsin are now ready for new homes.

Almost two dozen horses were near death when they were found in Pleasant Prairie three months ago at the farm of David White and Paula Moctezuma.

They have been recovering at Stonehedge farm in the town of Paris for the past three months and now they're up for adoption.

"I fall in love with all the horses, and that's a dangerous thing. We can't have them all. And that's sort of what happened, with that place over there. You fall in love with too many horses and you can't take care of them," says Klaus Dierks, owner of Stonehedge Farm.

At least 7 of the 23 animals have new homes.

White and Moctezuma face multiple counts of animal neglect and neglect causing death.

They have pleaded not guilty.

The couple also faces a lawsuit from the village of Pleasant Prairie, asking for compensation for the thousands of dollars spent on caring for the surviving animals.
