Malnutrition cited in Edgeley farm horse deaths
About 35 horses and two donkeys were recently taken into protective custody from an Edgeley, N.D., farm where at least half a dozen horses were found dead.
Three confiscated animals had to be euthanized, according to a veterinarian working with authorities on the case.
A judge ruled that horses on the Richard Musland farm in rural Edgeley were "unjustifiably exposed to cold or inclement weather" and fed hay with low nutritional value, some of which was rotting.
