Apple Springs woman asking for help after horse dies

APPLE SPRINGS, TX (KTRE) - One of the two female horses abandoned in an Apple Springs pasture died Thursday night.

Sarah Mosely, whose husband discovered the horses in July, has been working hard to get the horses veterinarian care and to a good home. Each night after work she has gone out to the pasture and fed the horses. Mosely told KTRE News in July that she had found a home for the two horses, but was having a difficult time finding people to help her transport the horses to a new home.

Mosely tearfully told KTRE News today that she believes one of the horses was hit by a car. Her ex-husband discovered the horse Friday morning. Mosely says she is devastated by the loss and desperately needs help to find and catch the other horse before it dies.

"It's not the horses fault to be out here. They didn't do anything wrong," Mosely said in July. "They do need vet care, feed…they do need medicines and if you can't see that you are able to do that, then don't attempt because they deserve everything they can get."

Mosley said that she had a woman call her over the weekend that wanted to take in the horse. Mosley said all that is needed now is experienced roppers and someone with a trailer to move the wild horse.

"I can understand times are tough," said Mosley. "The grass is dying. Hay and feed are expensive. I would urge people that if you can't take on the responsibility to give them away. There's plenty of people who are out there that will take a horse."
