    Warning for people who rodeo/show.

    I was just checking FHOTD and they had posted this article. Everyone who travels to rodeos and shows. Be warned, this does happen and even once is too often.

    News : Horse thieves sought - Capital Journal Pierre, SD newspaper since 1881

    Please keep a close eye on your horses when you are away from home.

    Good idea to post that story Smrobs.
    I've worked several rodeos when I was on patrol, here is a short list of things to go with your post that people can do to help protect their horses.
    1. Be vigilant-Rodeo's are hectic exciting places but always check your horse frequently.
    2. Pay attention to anyone hanging around the horses, make a mental note of what they look like ( top down) approx age, height, weight, hat or none, hair color, eye color, shirt, pants, shoes. This will help IF heaven forbid a horse is stolen to catch the person responsible.
    3. Along with 2. Watch for empty trailers pulling into the rodeo grounds, type/color of vehicle and type/color of trailer if possible a license plate number.
    The key is be observant, look out for one another and the horses, as well as tack if you see something suspicious tell someone. It's always better to be safe than sorry,

    That must be terrifying to wake up and her baby wasn't there. I can't imagine someone doing that to my horses.

    We padlock and chain our trailer, tack room, and living quarters on our trailer, but we are at rodeos(and it is still going on, not when we are asleep in the trailer) we have someone sitting by the trailer just in case they break the locks.

    How sad! I hope someone pays for doing something like that to a defenseless animal. I'm getting my boy microchipped the next time the vets comes out so he'll be identifiable if he were to ever get stolen

    That is so sad. Poor Dually. I hope these guys get what is coming to them. Why would you do that to someone's horse?

    Even with staying there for a day i've seen people messing around with other people's horses when they leave for a few minutes. I would never take an eye off a horse no matter oh long I will be staying there.
