The Shiawassee County Sheriff posted on it's Facebook page saying the department assisted with the rescue of six Belgian draft horses.

The Sheriff says the horses were not being properly cared for and appeared to be slightly malnourished.

Investigators say the owner and his family agreed to surrender the horses to Deputy Stechshulte, he contacted Erin Griebe of C2CDHC and a team of volunteers along with their trucks and trailers quickly responded in the pouring rain to assist in removing the horses.

The sheriff also thanked Dr. Laura Pylman for sedating the untrained horses and helping to get them loaded into the trailers
