    But remember the college rodeo horse from a year or so back? The whole teams' horses stolen off the OK college campus, left to starve in a woods and the one in particular butchered by a crazee stalker of his owner? A woman stalker no less. I want to call the horse Coin something or Dollar.

    I don't feel good about this at all.

    Re: getting into a truck - my previous one was an '04 F150, and one day I dropped my keys on the driver's seat, and somehow had a brainwave and locked it manuallly (they will NOT lock if the keys are in the ignition, unless you have a second set to do it with).
    Anyhow, called the auto club to come and open it - they were in and out in under a minute.They had an airbag that they inserted in the tiny space between door and frame, pumped it up enough to give a gap for a slimjim, and voilĂ  - open truck. I stood there with my jaw on the ground at how fast it was.
    My `10 F150 has a chip in the key....if I were to use a door-only key, or someone tried to use another key other than the programmed ignition key, it would have to be towed to a dealer to have it reset.

    Default Ford trucks are the most frequently stolen vehicles in that part of Texas

    The thieves in the Houston area like all pickup trucks, but Fords especially.

    I've been to that Tractor Supply many times, always bought my horse treats and salt blocks there. Will definitely keep my eyes open, thanks for posting this. The truck is probably gone to Mexico by now, but the horse and trailer might still be around.

    I think they need to start hanging people for horse thieving again, seems like it happens A LOT around here (Texas). I don't know if it's really a local thing or it happens everywhere this much and I just don't hear about it. Hope the horse is recovered ok

    Locks only keep honest people honest. They most certainly do not stop a determined criminal, never have.

    Great, what a relief that must have been.

    We really need to reinstall hanging for horse theft.

    Back in the bad old days, I could unlock a car door with a flat shedding blade.

    Remember being able to pull up a lock with an unbent wire hanger threaded through the window?

    Tied to a tree and other horses in the area were taken care of? That's horrible. I hope the find the jerks and hang them by their short hairs.

    Phew. Still sucks about the truck and trailer of course but the horse is the most important part of this equation! I'm shocked Fords are so easy to break into. I once locked myself out of my Toyota at a rest stop on the Penna Turnpike. Someone tried to help me break back in to it using some of methods described but none worked. This is a 98, so not a new car. In the end we called the Triple A.
