ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is auctioning off five horses and one mule that were recovered in an animal cruelty case.

The sheriff’s office was awarded the equine following the recent prosecution and conviction of an animal cruelty case in Anderson.

Under South Carolina law, property owned by a county government may not be donated and must be sold at auction.

The following is a list of the equine up for auction:

  1. Poncho – Color: Dun; DOB: 2009; Breed: Mule; Gender: Neutered/Castrated Male
  2. Grey – Color: Flea Bitten Grey; DOB: 1997; Breed: Thoroughbred; Gender: Neutered/Castrated Male
  3. Blaze – Color: Sorrel; DOB: 2005; Breed: Quarter Horse; Gender: Neutered/Castrated Male
  4. Star – Color: Sorrel; DOB: 2005; Breed: Quarter Horse; Gender: Neutered/Castrated Male
  5. Bay – Color: Bay; DOB: 2002; Breed: Paso Fino; Gender: Neutered/Castrated Male
  6. Paint Mare – Color: Bay Overo; DOB: 2003; Breed: Paint; Gender: Female

Per the Coggins reports, all animals have tested EIA negative, and have been under the care of a local veterinarian since they were seized from their previous owner. The animals are in need of a good home in order to avoid any detrimental outcome, the sheriff’s office said.

The auction will take place on July 15 at 10 a.m. at Martin Veterinarian Services located at 1345 Cherokee Rd. in Pelzer.

The horses will be awarded to the highest bidder.
