BEND, Ore. (AP) — Officials are taking adoption applications for the more than 60 horses seized from a central Oregon ranch earlier this year.
The Bulletin reports the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is accepting applications through next week and will hold a lottery to select possible adopters.
The horses were seized from a ranch in Terrebonne in March after they were found in poor conditions.
The sheriff’s office plans to conduct background checks on applicants before the lottery draw scheduled for Oct. 26.
