2 horses running free since getting spooked Sunday found safe on NH mountain
NOTTINGHAM - Two horses that have been running wild after getting spooked over the weekend have been found.
Granite State Dog Recovery posted on Facebook on Wednesday morning that both horses were found safe on Middle Mountain. The group had been assisting their owner that reported them missing late Sunday night.
In the post the group says, "Thank you to everyone that have spent their time searching and helping to reunite these horses with their mom!! They are working to get them off the mountain now."
Dozens of volunteers showed up throughout the day Monday to help search the trails and woods of Pawtuckaway State Park for two horses that went missing Sunday.
Austin Jones and his girlfriend Shaune Horan were riding the horses Sunday when a couple of bicyclists came flying down a hill. Jones say they tried to get off in time to move the horses off the trail.
