Reports indicate that a nine-year-old standardbred was abandoned at a Wal-Mart store in Middlefield, Ohio by an Amish teen.

Wal-Mart staff reportedly took care of the stranded standardbred, which they nicknamed 'Wally,' until local police were notified. According to reports, Geauga County Humane Society's Rescue Village took over control of the horse, which will be put up for adoption.

Thanks for listening!
