A hay caravan made its way Saturday from Monkton, Md., in Baltimore County to Washington County carrying 450 bales to donate to the Humane Society of Washington County to help care for horses the Humane Society seized last year.

Several people from around Maryland donated hay to help care for about 70 horses the Humane Society took from a Sharpsburg farm in late 2006.

The society has assumed responsibility for the care of all of the horses it found at Windrinker Farm, said Katherine Cooker, manager of development and community relations. Some of the horses were thin, injured and infested by parasites, The Herald-Mail reported in December.

About 30 people participated in the caravan, and 10 Humane Society volunteers helped unload the hay, Cooker said.
