Associated Press Release

OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- More than a dozen Paso Fino horses in Marion County are up adoption because their owner can no longer care for them.

The Ocala Star Banner reports 13 of the horses at the farm were allowed to roam free and have never been handled.

Morgan Silver of the Horse Protection Association of Florida is currently taking care of the horses. Silver says some of the horses were emaciated and they had never had any hoof care.

The association held a tack sale on Saturday and two of the younger horses were there for viewing. Silver says the horse breed known for its fine step and Spanish heritage are easy to handle and are loyal.
