My trailer was stolen - how to protect my horses.
So, my horse trailer disappeared today. I'm out of town, but I just got the call a little while ago. Filing a police report, buying locks for everything that didn't already have locks, changing the existing locks, and taking pictures of my horses and all my tack.
I know who took my trailer, and I'm not worried about getting it back - the woman who lives in the mobile home on the property my barn is on was scheduled to move out today, and it's a long story - I'm just worried about my precious horses and my exspenive tack in the mean time.
I'm worried about my horses disappearing in the middle of the night. I can't be in town right now, but I've got friends/family taking care of everything they can down there for me.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to further protect my horses?
I am in the process of
---takingpictures of brands, distinguishing markings, and pictures from all angles of them
---makingcopies of their papers
---giving pictures and copies of their papers to the police
---putting new locks on my barn doors, paddock gates, property gates, tack room, and barn office
So what else? Can I get the horses microchipped?
