The St. Louis Police mounted patrol horses are back in Forest Park full time.
The horses had moved out of their stables at the park after lead paint contamination became an issue in 2009. Since then, the horses were kept at a private farm, makeshift stables at other parks and recreation buildings according to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
But a million-dollars in donations to Forest Park Forever made repairs at the old stables possible. The stable is now home to the unit's four horses and to two park ranger horses.
