Abused horses rescued

MIAMI, FL (WFLX)--  Two horribly abused horses are fighting for their lives.

 The horses were rescued Sunday by South Florida Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 

 The starving paint horses were found at a boarding facility in Miami Gardens, nailed inside a stable that had to be torn down in order to reach them. 

 According to Laurie Waggoner, director of ranch operations for SFSPCA, "Left without water, the horses were eating wood and their own manure (feces) in order to survive." 

 The SOUTH FLORIDA SPCA has established special fund to help with their immediate care.  To donate, go to www.crowdrise.com/paintbucket
