We can now confirm that these horse thieves were hitting other farms; meaning the second horse was also a recently stolen horse. The second horse that was found, has been CLAIMED by owners. He was found with the missing paint that we originally issued a BOLO for, on December 8th. This chestnut gelding was stolen on November 23, 2020.
