Rescued Horses Find New Home in Bunnell

Three months after our deputies took custody of two neglected mares, these beauties have found their way to a new home in Bunnell, in Flagler County. The horses have recovered from their ordeal with loving care and careful veterinary monitoring. On Thursday, they were transported to a 31-acre ranch where they will join seven horses -- and a protective donkey -- that roam the property. Sheriff Mike Chitwood is very grateful to the new owner for adopting these horses, who will get new names soon! Their new owner says they are already settling in: "I am so happy to have this opportunity to take care of these wonderful creatures. They will have a long and loving life."
