HUMANE SOCIETY 8 Horses Are Impounded; Owner Sought

Eight horses abandoned in a field in Brookline, Mo., were impounded Monday by the Humane Society of Missouri.

A farmer about 10 miles west of Springfield called the agency after he found a dead foal in a pasture rented by the horses' owner.

The owner, Tom Davidson of Nixa, Mo., has not been seen for about five weeks, said the Humane Society. "We need to speak to Mr. Davidson about the medical conditions of these horses," a spokeswoman said. Anyone with information may call 647-8800.

Workers removed three pregnant mares, a fourth mare, one stallion, one 2-year-old stud colt and two geldings from the pasture. Six of the horses are being held at the Humane Society's Large Animal Rehabilitation Center in Union. Two have been moved to the Mid Rivers Equine Center for medical treatment.
