If you believe that good things come in small packages, you'll like our horses of the month...

Dawn Keen of the Klamath County Humane Society's Large Animal Division says the two miniature horses are most likely a daughter and mother...

"This is Misty, over here, and this is Crescent."

Keen notes that the two are very close...

"The older one is 10 to 12, and the younger one is 2 years old.  They're both tied to the hip.  One goes, the other one goes."

Misty and Crescent will need some extra care, particularly with their hooves.

"Their owner surrendered them, because of their feet."  Explains Keen.  "They needed some maintenance done on them, and he had signed them over to us."

Crescent and Misty are available for adoption through the Klamath County Humane Society's Large Animal Division on Miller Island Road.

They're on the web at:

About the Author

Lyle Ahrens

KOTI-TV NBC2 reporter Lyle Ahrens moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls in the late 1970's.  He instantly fell in love with the mountains, the trees and the rivers, and never once regretted the move.

Lyle's job history is quite colorful.  He’s managed a pizza parlor; he’s been a bartender, and a “kiwifruit grader” at an organic orchard in New Zealand.  A Klamath Falls radio station hired Lyle in the mid 90's as a news writer and commercial producer.  In 2004, Lyle joined the KOTI/KOBI news operation.

Lyle notes with pride that he has a big responsibility presenting the Klamath Basin to a wide and varied audience.  "The on-going water crisis has underscored the fact that the people and the issues in the Klamath Basin are every bit as diverse as the terrain.  Winning and keeping the trust of the viewers, as well as the newsmakers, is something I strive for with each story".

When he's not busy reporting the news, Lyle enjoys astronomy, playing guitar, fixing old radios and listening to anything by Sheryl Crow.
