LAKEPORT – Animal Care and Control reported this week that it has another horse that's come into its care that needs a good home.


Bill Davidson, Animal Care and Control's deputy director, said a 10-year-old tobiano paint mare has been surrendered to the agency.


Davidson said the mare first came to Animal Care and Control's attention after the agency received a call from the US Forest Service regarding a loose horse.


He said she was taken for vet care off of Elk Mountain Road due to a nasty leg wound.


The mare previously was owned by a woman from Oregon who came to Lake County and was new to horse ownership. Because the woman forfeited ownership, Davidson said Animal Care and Control isn't seeking legal action against her at this time.


“The vet reports have come back very positive and she will most definitely be sound and ridable,” he said.


With the mare's wound now mostly healed, Animal Care and Control wants to find her a good home, Davidson said.


Horse lovers can submit sealed bids, with the minimum bid set at $250. Davidson said bids will be accepted through July 12.


He said the horse is nice, manageable and believed to be broken, although she's best to go with someone who has knowledge of horses.


An Arab gelding Animal Care & Control previously had up for adoption had no local bids but was taken by a horse rescue group in Petaluma, Davidson said.
