You have a lot of restraint! I'd have had a stock whip in hand and used it on the first person who came to the door, glad you took a deputy with you and didn't go that route. I think the fact you took the deputy with showed a willingness to do whatever had to be done to regain and protect this poor mare. Glad you have her back.

After getting the phone call on Sunday I did my research and talked to the Sherriffs dept about what I could do and what proof I needed Dreamcatcher.
i was worried the rest of my time away though. i also knew that jesus and miquel would watch out and know if the mare was moved.
I am livid and wanted to post earlier but decided my ability to remain civil was not assured and I am on good terms with the MODS. I want to keep it that way. LOL
This is the dam of the filly I posted about that needed to be weaned and halter broken. we were going to take the round pen down and move it to the pasture feed the amre and filly there until we could halter the filly.
Not going to do that now since the pasture is a distance from the house and close to a road.
Putting the mare and filly in a round pen some distance from the house is just asking for a return visit IMO.
Now we go to plan B. Shalom

I am so glad you got the mare back & without too much hassle. Hope they leave you alone now. Do you have any outside lights? Or places you could mount some-maybe w/a motion sensor?

Cacow this place is over 6 square miles ansd with miles of fencing.
we did get new chains on all the gates but the fencing is barbed wire for the most part and if anyone wants in they can sinmply cut the fence. we might not know about it for a couple of days or we see cattle or horses in the road or hay meadow
Most of the locals know what happened and are very noisy to begin with so I think they are the best detection system in the world.
they know what you are going to have for dinner before you do. Shalom

Glad to hear your mare is back in good hands. You were wise to take your time and do it right and bring the sheriff. Hopefully now it won't ever happen again.

What is the matter with some people? They go to the effort to "steal" a horse but won't take care of it properly - or even kindly. What was their purpose? I just don't get it. It's just too bad you have to live in the same area as people like that. Ugh.

They probably chased and roped her. GLad you got her back safe. HOpe she picks up her weight fast. Maybe you could get a donkey that would alert you if someone came into the pasture ? I hear that they make good guards. (no pun intended) any fence except pipe can be taken down easy enough, and I would love to have pipe all around my acreage, but sadly I am not rich.

There was a donkey there in the pasture with her. they do make great gaurdians against predators but would be very wary of any stranger entering the pasture. He might have brayed a lot but since I was gone and the pasture is a distance from the house no one would have heard him.
Millie is the name I have given her yesterday. After she has gained her wieght i will start riding her again.
She is pretty well broke and is a pure QH. Her filly is very nice and was a planned breeding. the drought of 2011 forced lots of ranchers to sell off livestock.
Anyone know if a ranch that brands an 86 on the left shoulder and a 0 on the left hip? would love to find out any information on the mare. Shalom
