That really sucks. Having been through the horse theft ordeal, I can totally sympathize with what they are going through, and it's not nice. :(
I hope they turn her up safe and sound.

As a side note for people that are not aware, there is a great organization that distributes notices about stolen horses... see Stolen Horse International, Inc. ~ NetPosse.com Home Page You can find them on FB, also.

I'm going to suggest a forum for this sort of thing.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I just contacted a friend of mine who was at that roping. Locally, they are scouring the area looking for that horse.

Thank you! I really Hope they find her.

I've gone through a similar situation. My show mare was stolen when I was 10. We even knew who took her and did all we could at the time, even hired a private investigator, took her to court, but were never able to recover our mare. The woman who stole her was fined a bunch of money; of which we never saw one red cent. Not sure where she is now, last I heard she was diagnosed as a schitzo. Even scarier is that this woman was related through marrage to us, I trained under her and showed with her son. I was at her house soemtimes three times a week as a kid training. Our mare was boarded at her house until one day she and the horses up and vanished- not long after we has sent our mare through emergency surgery for sand collic. Ok now I'm rambling/venting- sorry. I still get upset about it 17 years later.

RIP Logans Pleasure, you were truly great.

I heard a story about a young man that stole some cattle in Texas and took them to an auction. As he was picking up his check after they sold a Texas Ranger put his hand on his shoulder and said,"Boy, you would have been better off killing a man in Texas than stealing his cattle". This was in the 1980's and I would bet it's still true now. I hope the horse was branded and they find the horse.
