An Update on the Horse Theft - The Old West Lives Again!

From a page right out of the Old West, we didn't think it could get any crazier until we received an email this morning inquiring about the outcome of the missing horse saga.

We originally ran the story on August 30, 2008 at the request of several individuals close to the abduction. This site was updated a few times during the "golden hours," and the horse owner even posted an update on September 2, 2008.

We would like to think our site was helpful in the early hours to spread the word, and we posted every update that was made available in a timely manner. As a point of clarification, the Ogden Valley Forum is an "open" forum and anyone close to the case (or not so close) could have posted an update via the comments link.

A week passed, and we received this email this morning:

Was their any kind of resolution with the horse theft situation? You have not updated the site or blog as to if the horses were safely returned home. It seems in a small town like ours, out of common courtesy, as well as for our eyes that are still trying to look out for them, that there would be some kind of update.

"Out of common courtesy," we did some investigating and were surprised by what we found.

First, we found some photos that were posted at various locales Valley wide. The photos depict the alleged "Rig" and stolen horses.
See if you recognize either the rig or the yard in the background.

In the mean time, we contacted some sources close to the investigation and received this consensus:

"They have been found and are ok. The police are in the process of their investigation so we can't say too much right now other than the horses are doing well."

We think there will be an interesting story behind the horse burglary. A KSL News Story on September 4, 2008 reported that "the Weber County Sheriff's Department tells us this may be a case of someone taking the property because they feel the pony owners owe them."

Did the owner of the white SUV take the law into his own hands?

Is there more to this crazy story?

Stay tuned - It just cannot get any better than this!

Or could it?

Yes thats right! in the good ole days horse rustling was a hanging offence. It doesn't matter if these people owed a debt or not, stealing is still a crime.
