A man who helped the deputies capture the horse is keeping it on his farm until the owner is found. If the owner is not found, the horse will be auctioned in about 30 days.
"There's obviously a stall fee that needs to paid for the guy who is keeping it," Miller said. "So whatever we would get at the auction would be taken right off the top. Then the rest would go into the county's general fund.
Miller said the horse is in good physical condition. But he would not release any more details about the horse because he wants the owner to be able to describe it.
"If someone believes they are the owner, they can contact me, " Miller said. "But it's still a mystery."
