    Horses left stranded in San Jose floodwater have been reunited with their owners.

    All of the 28 horses were rescued by Friday, with most of the animals rescued a day before.

    The horses that have been rescued are being held at two locations: Hope Ranch in Almaden and the South Bay Horse Ranch in Gilroy.

    Silva's Hay & Grain in San Martin is asking for cash donations to help pay feed for these horses.

    The first horse rescued on Thursday, Brownie, was safely reunited with its owner after crews helped the animal cross a river.

    Horses that have been rescued are being held at two locations: Hope Ranch in Almaden and the South Bay Horse Ranch in Gilroy.

    Horse owners said the rescues, while happening gradually, are necessary.

    "Riding across is probably the best thing for the horses, as long as they're a good trail horse and will trust their rider," said.

    If you want to donate to help the rescued horses, you can do so by either calling  (408)-683-2348 or dropping by Silva Ranches Feed Store.
