The coach sounds like he was the only one who knew how to find them. Used another horse that knew the ones missing and they knew her. You must not know much about horses or other animals.

Hmmmmmmm and SAU two are gonna look awful foolish when they find the real thieves! I bet you two would know something about that??? Otherwise you wouldn't be blaming the coach, who had absolutely nothing to do with it!! Just sit tight... they will find the sorry thieves who did this and the safest place for them will be the county jail!!!!! There is a lot of folks pissed off over this and these cowards will pay!!!!

You have got it all wrong. I was not even hinting that the coach had anything to do with it. I was merely saying that he was smart enough to know to carry another horse that the stolen ones would know to look for them. Read the post before you jump to conclusions.

When the coach and team member has to go find the horses is pretty bad. This is not saying very much for McCurtain County, OK law enforcement. Remember McCurtain County has the reputation for being the marijuana capital of the US. Maybe it was good they did not feed the horses some of their "grass".

I would love to know who their suspects are.The Arkansas law will have to push this because if they wait for mccurtain county law to do something they will be waiting a long time.The law needs to check out this person (Irving Pond) talk to his ex girlfriend Janell Hankins. She can tell them a lot. He has no problem tying things up in the woods.Hell he tied her out in the woods to a tree and left her. She managed to get away and left him for good.He is really abusive, just ask anyone in Tom,Ok. everyone knows him,and yes he used to train horses.He is the kind of sick b------ that would do something like this! Another thing is his nephew and niece both went to college in Magnolia,ar.HMMMMMMMM

I agree with some of the others the whole thing sounds fishy. A stablemate of the stolen horses is taken with them to an area that should of already been thoroughly searched and the horse whinnies the the others answer, come on home Lassie moment. All of this done on a stormy night in McCurtain county Oklahoma, arguably the tornado capital of the south. This didn't happen without inside knowledge or a tip from someone who dropped them off after the tip was given.

If you wait for mccurtain county law to thoroughly search the woods or anywhere else your wasting precious time.

I am very pleased for the return of the horses. The job is not complete. One horse remains unfound. We are praying for a miracle for the welfare of all. Lets tie those responsible to a tree with no water or food, spray paint their bodies. I wonder how long they will last. a stiff fine and jail time doesn't seen adquite.

It would just be nice to find the other horse and figure out who did this. Does this missing horse not have a horse that can call out to it, too? I'm not sure where the fishy-ness is coming from, but this case seems far from closed.

My heart sank when I heard they found the last horses remains in oklahoma.Whoever did this better hope and pray they go to jail,[allthough that's too good for them,]because if the law lets them slip out of this,I think there is too many people out here that is infuriated over this and they will not let them go unpunished!!!Vengance is mine said the Lord,but in this case I think it's going to be different.
