"We would not normally issue citations for something like that.”

The surviving horses were corralled into a trailer where they were examined by veterinarians and later released to the owner. They were taken to a private facility near Cushing for further care.

The highway patrol has not completed its investigation. The state veterinarian’s office said all horses were properly documented and were traveling on health certificates that allowed for transport from Missouri to Texas.
