PALERMO (AP) -- Two horses once destined for the slaughterhouse have a new home at Graceland, where they're being adopted by Priscilla Presley.
Carol-Terese Naser rescued six horses including Max and his brother, Merlin, last summer from a family in Quebec. To defray costs, she and her friend, Cathy Cleaveland, enlisted celebrities to sign T-shirts to sell at auction.
Max and Merlin were lucky enough to catch the attention of Priscilla Presley, former wife of the late Elvis Presley. She tells the Kennebec Journal that horses are what made Graceland home, so she's bringing them to Memphis.
Max arrived at Graceland this month, and Merlin is due to follow this spring.
