so glad to hear that most of them have been found! im confident that all of them will be found! best wishes with the investigation!
Horses were found in the woods by using another horse that was raised with one of the missing horses. The two horses “talked” to each other and let the coach Rusty Hayes located the four missing horses. So glad he has “horse sense”!
What great news! I sure hope they find the last one and punish who ever did this horrible thing.
I hope they find Credit Card safe and sound!
I’m glad that they found the 4 at least. But why were they stolen?
Glad to hear that 4 of the horses are found.
