Three Horses up for Adoption at Local Humane Society

Looking to adopt a horse?

The Windsor Essex County Humane Society has three up for adoption.

Executive Director Melanie Coulter says the three horses range in age from 13 to 21-years-old.

She says two arrived late last year and one arrived earlier this year.

"They're friendly horses," says Coulter.  "So they're social with people.  They like other horses but as far as we know riding horses that are suitable for riding.  So these are looking for someone whose looking for a pasture horse and not expecting them to be able to provide a service like riding."         

Coulter adds it's pretty unusual to have three horses up for adoption at the same time.

"We do get horses in periodically and so we'll have them available for adoption every so often but three at once is definitely more than is usually the case," says Coulter.  

The three horses are named Buddy, Murdock and Hope.

They are currently at foster homes.
