SHERRILL – After numerous attempts, the horse and pony that have been on the loose since last Wednesday have been safely captured.

Two women from Wildwood Farms wrangled the horse and pony around 1 p.m. Tuesday. The owner, Kristi Francis of Oneida, says they’ll be heading to a local vet Wednesday to get caught up on their shots.

The animals got loose last week after being transported to Francis’s sister’s farm in Sherrill, after Francis volunteered to take them from their previous owners, who could no longer care for them. The first horse went off the trailer and into the barn, but the other horse and pony ran off, and they’ve been in a wooded area off of Sholtz Road in Sherrill ever since.

On Tuesday, about 20 volunteers gathered to try and corral the animals, but their efforts were unsuccessful. 

Francis says she’s reaching out to local horse farms to see if the rogue horse and pony can be boarded.
