CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) - The high cost of hay is taking a toll on horses in Colorado this year.
The Harmony Equine Center in Douglas County has brought in about a dozen horses from the southern part of the state that were turned loose.
Three horses were seized by animal control officials last week because they were starving. One owner indicated he was in financial crisis and unable to afford food.
According to KCNC-TV, the shortage is forcing people to buy hay from other states.
