STOLEN - East bristol

2 saddles and bridles. Four men...one with a pitbull dog and drives a silver/blue pick up truck, last three letters of registration plate is YBO (front end of pickup is a fontera) has a strong irish accent, other three men in a silver transit van with yellow lights on top.

The man in the pickup arrives at the yard first and locates tack and moves anything they wish to steal in a direct location where the three men in the transit then collect.
The first man has the dog with him, so when disturbed claims to be walking the dog!

The Police have been notified of the thefts and a crime reference number is available although not to hand at the moment (sorry!). A designated police officer has been assigned from Staple Hill Police Station, Bristol due to the number of break ins in the area.

Please be vigilant everyone.

New flat-packed stables stolen
Details of the stables are as follows: They measure 21 meters by 5 meters and have two wings both 12 meters by 5 meters. When assembled they would have 6 stables, 1 corner box, 1 tack room, and a 12 meter hay barn. Construction is of 3/4 inch redwood cedar weatherboard and are very much bespoke. These stables would certainly stand out and would make a few heads turn as they would be so different from all the others on the market. Each panel/side has been individually constructed by Edward, a semi-retired craftsman in stabling--he is absolutely gutted as much as us over this major theft. We talked with him this morning and he has already begun ordering and remaking the stables.

Final note: Sarah and I are offering a reward for information leading to the return/recovery of the stables. If whoever took them wants to return them or tell us where we could find them, ok, but I don't think they have the conscience or moral fibre to do the right thing. If anyone has information, no matter how small or important, they can email Sarah at:
xsarahcraftx@msn.com and we will keep every email strictly private.

If you'd like to talk to Sarah she can be reached on 07765-301711.

Horsewatch - Stolen
Molly. From Stoke Prior, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. On 02/06/06. Piebald cob, mare. Quite heavy. Feathered whorl on mid section of offside neck. Whorl on each side of flank. Distinctive grey spot (approx 1 inch circular)with two black spots in the middle above nearside nostral. mottled patches on whithers, back and under belly. Large black patches on eack side of flank and on chest. One wall eye on nearside. White mane, black and white tail, 2 black ears extending to cheek bones and patches round eyes. Black on the end of her muzzel. Very quiet, dosile temperament. Please help.
Reward for safe return £1500
She was taken from our field in on Shaw Lane in Stoke Prior, Bromsgrove, Worcester. Sometime between Thursday 01/06 6:00pm and Friday 02/06 7:30am. It looks like somebody has driven their box to the fence to break it down, they have taken her out through the broken part. The electric fence was on, they must have lay it on the floor and put the ramp (or something) over it because she would not have walked over it herself. They left my mothers bay 14.2 in the field.

There was a guy and his (daughter?) in a transit van with 'Garden Services' written on the side asking a dog walker who owned the horses about 3 weeks ago.

Unfortunately, she was not micro-chipped or freeze branded. She is passported.

Re the first e mail...I can confirm the facts are correct. The horse is as described and still has not been reported missing (as best we know).
MY friend has found a mare of about 15.2hh wondering round on the village lawn last weekend. She is a very odd colour, and is almost a strawberry roan appalusa type. Hard to describe but VERY distinctive. She has several identifiing marks on her also and has what looks like a freezemark in a very odd place, but its impossible to read. The police have been informed, as have ILPH, RSPCA and horsewatch. If no one cliams this mare within a week she becomes my friends property legally, although if her real owner does come forward she will be returned. We estimate her to be early teens. She is well cared for, with nicely trimmed feet. We really don't know where she could have come from , as she appeared suddenly at 4pm last Sunday on the village green, she is not a local horse as the village is very small, all we can think is that she is stolen and then dumped as she's to identifiable. Please PM me if you think you may know her, meridian TV are going to do an appeal on her to find her owners!

There was a farm burglary sometime between Monday 03/07/06 and Tuesday 04/07/06 between the hours of 21.00 and 08.00 at Northaw Road West Hertfordshire.

The offender(s) gained access to stables and stable yard by climbing over a locked gate. Once inside, Offender(s) sprinkled pellet style rat poison into various drinking troughs, feeding bins and bedding areas. PLEASE BE ALL AWARE AND KEEP AN EYE OUT.

Yesterday (Wednesday 5th July 2006) in the Cambridgeshire area early afternoon a white Transit pickup R-reg with something like "Trimform" or "Trimboard" written on the back, 3 blokes inside, was seen behaving suspiciously near a horse field in Middle Fen Drove, Swavesey, Cambridgeshire returning to it twice. Later the horse owner found her energiser and battery stolen.
