    MESA VERDE, CO - AUGUST 07: Wild horses are just some of the wildlife seen by visitors to Mesa Verde National Park on August 7, 2008 in Mesa Verde, Colorado. Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, the park protects over 4,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.

    The 20 wild horses found roaming in Hialeah have all been rounded up thanks to a nearby farmer.

    Pedro Hernandez herded up the 10 remaining horses yesterday after 20 were found roaming in the area of NW 97th Avenue and 154th Street in Hialeah, according to the South FloridaSPCA.

    The owners of the ten horses have come forward to claim the ten horses, which will be handed over to the owners by Hernandez.

    The SPCA had spent the weekend rounding up horses over fears that they might starve to death or possibly die as they get closer to high-traffic roads. Six of them were rounded up on Friday and another five were herded up on Saturday.

    One of the horses found Friday was a pregnant pony with a broken leg. The horses found Friday and Saturday were brought to the SPCA's rescue ranch. In a written statement, the organization said they're "doing well and acclimating to their new surroundings."

    They don't know the condition of the horse found by Hernandez.

    The non-profit said it can't care for all of the 50 or so horses in their possession without the public's help. They're asking for donations or people to adopt the horses.
