    Collin County authorities plan to auction off 47 Arabian horses at noon Saturday that were seized from a private owner last month.

    Officers said the 22 stallions and 25 mares, seized from Living Waters Arabians near Farmersville, were underfed.

    The owner said she is upset by the auction and insists the county has misrepresented the horses' condition.
