Tail Thieves.

Saw this on another forum...

If you live in north eastern kansas and north western missouri be on the lookout for tail thieves. Yesterday at my barn at an ARMY POST 3 horses got their tails chopped off in broad daylight (10am-noonish). We don't know who did it. The horses were in a paddock on the far side of the barn where no one looks unless you walk over there. There have been other reports of this happening all over and it's even been on the news.

A friend of mine in Canada, also lost her Gypsy Horse's tail to thieves in the night.

That would get my blood boiling! I do horse hair hitching and don't even steal from my own.

That is outrageous for someone to do this to horses
Hope they catch them

So, er, excuse the following as it could possibly be dumb...

Are we talking just the hair, here? Or the whole tail? >>

Hair probably, they use it for tail extensions. More than likely stole from light or rare colored horses.

It's bad enough with fly season coming.. being tail-less means less chance of warding them off :/

People just don't think sometimes.
