    Default Two Rescued Horses Now Part of LA Sheriff's Department

    Great story!

    http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_17613631

    Photo at link. Excerpt from article:


    Say hello to The Dude and Lady Bug - a couple of abandoned horses who are becoming LA County Sheriff's Department's newest mounted patrol team.

    Lady Bug - a former race horse - was found slowly starving to death on a ranch in the northeast corner of Los Angeles County last August.

    Her owner had recently divorced and her husband had left. The woman left, too - taking her 10 best thoroughbreds with her and leaving behind another 11 horses to starve.

    The Dude - a palomino gelding - was also found abandoned and starving. The county's Department of Animal Care and Control Equine Response Team found him last August stuck under a fence in Downey, desperately trying to escape.
