BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Starving horses that were seized from a Brown County farm earlier this year are now up for adoption.

According to Leslie Zureick from the Brown County Humane Society, the horses seized from a farm on Stratton Road in Hamersville are recovering nicely. In fact, many of them have already been adopted.

In January, the Brown County Humane Society seized seven horses from the farm after they were found starving, with no food and little shelter. One horse was already dead when the Human Society got there.

Zureick said that the horses were in such bad condition when they were rescued that they worried one of the horses wouldn't even survive the trailer ride to safety.

While examining the horses, a veterinarian also determined that two of the horses were pregnant.

According to Zureick, four of the horses are still available for adoption.

Dawn Ford was listed as the farm property owner on the Brown County Auditor's website.
