  3. Horse thefts...how to protect your horses?

    Is it just that I'm paying more attention, or are horse thefts on the rise?

    Frankly, this scares the crap out of me. I have horses that catch easily, load easily, etc.. I fear they would be...

    Did anyone notice that "Stendert's" (friesian) name changed to "Navarre" at the end of his ad? Think we have some copy and paste going on? :-)
