Please be vigilant….
We have been alerted to the dissappearance 4 days ago of 2 horses from a field near Confolens in the Charente.
They are a 10 yr old coloured mare and a 15yr old coloured stallion. The mares foal, a coloured mule, was left behind. There are no signs of these horses escaping, it is being treated as theft. If anybody notices a couple of new coloured horses, mare & stallion, in their area please could you alert us.
Horse theft in France is not common but we have noticed recently an increase in coloured horses going missing, perhaps because of the high prices being fetched for coloured gypsy cob types over here.
A useful site listing stolen horses can be found here.
If anyone has any information regarding the above horses please contact us in strict confidence at firstname.lastname@example.org
