We have an update for you on those horses rescued in Presidio County.

Last weekend, an auction was held to raise money for them.

You'll remember the horses were seized from a slaughter facility and then donated to a nonprofit called Lifesavers in Alpine

The auction raised more than $2,000.

The money will go to pay for things like hay and medical bills for the horses.

We're told another auction will be held sometime before Valentine's Day to raise more cash.

So far, six horses have been adopted to good homes and one mule is being donated to another nonprofit in East Texas.
