The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office is helping to find long-term foster homes for five horses, including one pregnant mare and a miniature pony.

In a Facebook post, the Sheriff's Office said the animals "were seized in a neglect case and are in bad condition" and require someone who can tend to their medical needs.

The horses can't be ridden and need homes for six to 12 months.

Anyone who can provide care for one or more of the horses is asked to contact Animal Control at 406-582-2100 for more information.
