Could you please explain whose horses they are, and why they were missing from wherever they were supposed to be? I am very confused and it doesn't sound like a great situation all around.
It all started 3 days ago when they escaped from some guys house down the road. We know this because my dad saw 3 horses walking side-byside down the road while he was going to work. The next day I saw my horse staring at something behind our house a little ways away on the train tracks. It was 3 horses. After spending 2 hours that night trying to get them off the tracks we gave up. Yesterday my mom got stopped by the D.O.T (department of transport) on her way to work and they mentioned there was 3 horses in town (they followed the train tracks) that almost got hit by 2 semis and the construction workers couldn't catch them. Later that day they walked back to our house on the tracks, and I spotted them. We bribed them in our feild with hay, and now there here. We tried calling animal control before catching them but they wouldnt answer, we tried calling the local ranch but they wouldnt help, we tried calling our friend but she was out on a hunting trip, and we also tried calling the sherif but nobody knows the owners name. Someone else in town has seen the horses at his house just like we did (thats why were assuming there his) but nobody knows him, they have seen the horses there but that's it. Im hoping he will find that we have the horses and come get them. We told the sheriff we had them incase anyone went around asking about 3 horses.
