The Great Passion Play purchased two Haflinger horses Tuesday.
It was the first livestock the play’s operators have bought since all of its animals - about 200 of them - were sold or given away in November in anticipation of the play’s permanent closure because of financial problems.
Assistant Executive Director of Public Relations of the Passion Play, Kent Butler says they are excited to be getting the animals back.
