    I'm wondering if this act of crime was personal? Somebody's revenge on the owner of the horses. So sad the animals have to suffer what ever the reason.

    Quote:It would make some sense since they were stolen from the Rodeo Barn and the one horse was her prize mare!

    These were very good, expensive roping horses, so somebody in the circuit will eventually find them, I hope. This incident made us put a lock on the horse pasture!
