They left every single english saddle (including my Beval which was worth more than all the western saddles combined), all bridles, girths, brushes, bits, etc. But took every single nasty ratty nylon halter. Oh and every lead rope.
I know theres a halter somewhere in the field (cause it was on a pony and I know theres no way they managed to catch her to get it off), and I remembered this morning I had put my pony leather halter in a trunk.
But they took every. single. lead rope. Latching the gate while holding a hungry horse with no lead was an adventure!!!
I bought 4 halters off ebay to replace the boarded horses halters, and bid on a lot of used abused ones for myself. I just bought two months of hay so running to tsc and buying $200 in halters might make my SO leave me lol.
Yes police have been notified. Police man was actually a horse person and held my injured gelding while I wrapped his foot. He estimated about $900 in tack was stolen.
I fed at 9, dont remember seeing saddles (wasn't looking either) but I know the halters were there cause I brought horses in with them. My SP came back at 1 to refill troughs and throw more hay. He wouldnt have noticed anything because he doesnt pay attention. But as he left a boarder showed (her horse wears his halter outside) and before she left another boarder showed up and she was still there when I got there. So it happened between 9-1
I have a gut feeling on who did it. Doubt they read coth but I'm keeping my mouth shut just in case. I put word out with the local horse traders I'm friendly with as they frequent low class auctions and tack sales.
I dont expect to see my stuff again but if my post made even one person lock their track room up, mission accomplished
