    Default Bizarre story: Woman arrested for stealing a horse from her boarder....

    Odd story: http://www.ratemyhorsepro.com/news/w...rse-theft.aspx

    Why in the world would she want to steal this horse and create such a story? Unbroke, unregistered, unimportant horse. Maybe bad blood between her and horse's owner?

    I had a whole post written out thinking this was about another theft in the same area. The barn owner who just handed over someone else's horse is a dumb-ass for not letting the owner know what was going on before they "siezed" the horse. Hope she's planning on moving the horse to another barn where the BO is not so ignorant.

    Read it again... the barn owner was in on the theft and has been arrested. The story about two people coming to seize the horse was made up as a cover.

    This happened in my county (well, my horse is boarded in that county.) Anyway, I'd recognized the horse's name but no clue where I've heard it before.

    What I read was that the BO stole the horse because her friend wanted it?

    That's just nuts. So many free horses and she decides to steal one from a boarder?

    The story was updated this morning with the latest that the BO was in on it. Now she's trying to blame it on the fake deputies. I thought for sure the owner was never going to see her horse again. If the BO thought the horse was not be cared for properly (must have been self-care) then you talk to the owner, not steal her horse.

    Or not! because the whole story seems too bizarre. I agree that it would be illogical to claim lack of care if you are the BO and your barn is NOT self care, but it could happen!

    The RateMyHorsePro article says the owner found the seizure of her horse "believable" at first.

    I am still trying to wrap my head around having my horse taken away from me, and finding it "believable" for any length of time! None of these folks come across as the sharpest knives in the drawer.
