A deputy contacted the reporting party about 6:30 a.m. April 26 in the 41500 block of Gossip Rock Street, according to deputies. The head was found near a driveway leading to her property.

It hasn't been determined how the horse died or under what circumstances the head was left on the reporting party's property, deputies said. The remains were later disposed of.
