STURTEVANT, Wis. (AP) - The last horse that was among dozens of malnourished animals taken from a Wisconsin farm has found a new home.
The black-and-white spotted pony was adopted Friday by Sturtevant veterinarian Pedro Rivera and his wife, veterinary technician Michelle Rivera.
The Riveras own The Healing Oasis Wellness Center. The pony, named Maximus, will help veterinarians, chiropractors and other animal health care professionals learn equine spinal manipulation techniques.
The Journal Times reports the pony is the last of 23 horses and 51 other animals seized from the Pleasant Prairie farm in April.
The farm's owners face charges of mistreatment of animals leading to death. Online court records indicate a judge's ruling in the case could take place as early as Jan. 28.
