Do I need a property release for farm animals?

Hi all, I know we need property release for private properties and some landmarks as well as pets (ironically), and model releases for humans. However, do I need a property release of farm animals from the owners?

For example, I took photos of some random horses and goats on some random farms I don't even remember where years ago. If I want to sell those either as print or stock, do I need to track down the owners to sign a release (I won't take the trouble if that's the case), or should I assume farm animals are more or less alike for most people that there is no need? However, one can say the same for most cats and dogs for people that are not their owners, but it seems the Internet consensus is property release is needed for pets. The horses and goats do have markings (white patch on brown head, for example).

Thanks for any advice!
