    Just received this email this morning. I realize this is not a "horsey" forum, but since we have people from all over here, and since I know there are some people on here that are "horsey" people, I'm posting this here to help spread the word about this.

    These horses could be anywhere in North America by now, so please everyone keep an eye out for them!

    thanks, Laura.

    How awful! Those horses are beautiful. I would be devastated. I will pass the word along to some of the local stables.

    I hope they catch them and get those horses back safe and sound. I'm sure you're worried and I would be too. Maybe keep them inside more for a while until hopefully they catch the thieves. :)

    It's probably not a huge deal for us......we're not that easy to just stumble upon, up here on this mountain. For instance, in the 9 years we've been here, we've only had one visit from a Jehovah's Witness. :D ;)

    And our barn is BEHIND our house, and the pasture gates within sight of the house. And we have a 150 pound dog that stays outside. :D We don't have a real set schedule, either, like most people. With my lessons, I am often here in our ring when working and I come and go all times of the day, so it would be pretty difficult for someone to get an idea of when it would be safe to come in here......

    That being said, my horses are so well trained to get on a trailer and love people so much, it would be quick and easy to get them loaded and be gone. Our barn does not have any way to "lock" it, so keeping them in is not really an option.

    Sad to hear this and hope they stay away from your place.

    Can you put a tracking chip in the horse's?

    Some people do, hewee, but it's expensive and generally not done on horses that aren't high-priced show horses.

    LoL @ Jehovah witness visit!! :D What kind of dog do you have?
    You could write your name on the sides of your horses with Sharpies so no one would want to take them :D Well, it could work... :rolleyes:

    This is the dog we used to have. He was a wolf/husky cross. He died a few years ago.

    This is the dog we have now.

    The first dog was about 120 pounds and really WAS a dog you had to beware of.....he loved children and all were safe around him, and he was fine with women......but he was very wary of strange men and they had to go very slowly and carefully when they first got out of the car. :D After he was sure we were still happy and okay, then he would wander off and lay down somewhere.

    The dog we have now is a Golden Retriever/New Foundland cross. He's a happy-go-lucky dork. :p But he is big and intimidating and does have a loud bark.......right up until someone gets out of a car and then you are his new best friend and he wiggles his whole body and wants to show you his favorite rock. :rolleyes:

    Geez, even the dogs are horses. :D:p

    They are beautiful dogs. I remember seeing a picture of Dillon and couldn't get over the fact that he came up to the top of that stove. Unless you have a short stove, that is mighty tall for a dog. :eek:

    I'm glad your horses are pretty safe up there and hope no one else falls victims to these thieves.
