The Humane Society of Louisiana announced today that 16 of the 20 horses that were showcased during New Orleans parades have found homes, leaving only four left for adoption.

The horse adoption program was started last year by the Humane Society to ensure that horses brought into the city and leased to carnival krewes for parades would not be resold at sale, auction, or to slaughter.

The horses were first purchased by Cascade Stables who partnered with the Humane Society to facilitate adoptions. 

The four remaining horses, Corona, Royale, Pinot, and Floka, are still up for adoption and can be viewed at the humane society's Facebook page New Orleans Mardi Gras Horses Available for Adoption.
