Stock theft: horses found

2010-07-29 00:00

THREE Appaloosa horses stolen from a farm near Howick have been recovered.

One was found almost immediately and the remaining two were recovered last Monday by the SA Police’s Force stock theft unit in Pietermaritzburg — three weeks after they were stolen.

At the time, Claire Owen of Hilton Stables in Birnam Wood outside Merrivale said she had received information that the horses might have been loaded into horseboxes on the Underberg road, which led her to believe that they could have been in East Griqualand. The horses had not been ridden and had apparently been looked after.
