Update on Abandoned Horse Story 

in July’s RMR

By Dorinda Troutman, RMR Staff Writer

 

August 2009 Issue

 

     The little sorrel mare abandoned near White Sulphur Springs , Montana , that was seen wintering over with elk on Forest Service land during the winter of 2008-2009 was sold at auction to the person who had been put in charge of caring for her.

     According to Krys Paulson, who told the horse’s story in the July 2009 RMR, the rescued mare was sold in June to her interim caregiver at the end of a cattle auction in Three Forks, Montana .

     “I know she will be well-cared for,” says Paulson, who had hoped to buy the horse herself and, out of concern for the mare’s lack of trailer-loading experience, had loaded and delivered the mare to her caregiver. “Her new owner has a couple of other horses, and I can visit her.”

Correction to the July story

            RMR reported that it was the county sheriff’s responsibility to take an unbranded, “estray,” horse and to sell it. Under Montana law, it is the responsiblity of a Montana stock (brand) inspector to declare an unbranded horse an estray, take possession of it, place it in a holding facility for at least 30 days, and not more than 60 days, and then advertise a description of it and where and when it will be sold at a public auction.
