    What's wrong with the middle horse? It's lost some of its fur.

    It's a foal and is shedding some of its baby coat.

    I really hope your friend manages to track her horse down, Valiant :sad:

    That is a truly hateful thing to do.
    Nicking a bike is bad but stealing a living creature which it's obvious someone will be attached to is low in the extreme.

    Sorry to hear that, it must be heartbreaking!

    I don't see many horses, but I'll keep a look out.

    Why Ireland. They're just as likely to go anywhere else. They don't look like any bloodstock of Shergars.

    Because the travellers love native horses with loads of feather like the one at the top of the page, and it is a lot easier to get a Horse across to NI and then across the border into Eire than anywhere else in the EU. You need to be well connected to pinch and dispose of a horse with no questions asked....

    If you are going to pinch a horse, let alone three, then the chances are you'd be taking them for yourself. Livestock going onboard ferries get inspected more than you might think. And to try & then get the three across a second boundry(the first being the Irish Sea & the second a border between countries) would heighten the risk to you.
     
  15. I sincerely hope that you get your horses back valiant!:thumbsup: Not making light of the issue, but i have an image in my head of this "burglary". Burglars usually go for antiques, televisions,credit cards etc. How the hell can they stick a horse in a sac, then expect not to be seen?!:laugh:

    Best wishes in retrieving them, and i hope summat horrible happens to the thieving @#~!!:evil:
