La Purisima Mission State Historic Park announced the addition of two new horses to their animal herd.

Horses Big Red and Madre were gifted to the park from a local family after the mission had to euthanize two of their horses in June .

Big Red is a 12-year-old thoroughbred mix and Madre is an 18-year-old quarter horse.

The Mission says the horses are settling in well and they like to be brushed and run around the pasture together.

The Mission is thanking the non-profit Prelado de los Tesoros for financial support of their animals.
