Roughnecks is a group of retired law enforcement, veterans and public safety personnel who have volunteered their time to help clean up the property where the horses are being kept. Pure Thoughts, a horse rescue foundation is handling private adoption requests for the horses. The agency will screen, write contracts and perform follow-up interviews for those interesting in adopting the troubled horses. Lexey Swall/Staff
