Wicks says the horses are Arabs and Willow is a Quarter Horse. She is also looking for placement for a little welsh pony named Elmo, and Queenie is an older cranky horse who just needs a pasture to hang out and spend her final days. Anyone interested in learning more about the horses up for adoption can call Cheryl Wicks at the 471-5041.
