FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Five South Florida horses may be out of a job as Broward County authorities scrounge every avenue to save money.
Mary Muffin, Star, Candy, Missy and Hokey Pokey have been declared "surplus," and could be headed into an adoption program. It will save the county just $17,000 a year, but authorities say every penny right now counts.
A couple dozen horses will remain at Tradewinds Park. The five that authorities want to get rid of are older and have health problems.
The county commission is scheduled to vote on the proposal Tuesday.
