Southern Arkansas University (SAU) police are seeking thieves who made off with several horses from the stables at the school's Magnolia campus earlier this week.

Brad Stout, SAU administrative specialist, said that on Nov. 2, five Quarter Horses, a horse trailer, and a variety of equestrian equipment were taken from the Mulerider Stables. The trailer was later recovered in McCurtain County, Okla., Stout said, but the horses remain missing.

The missing horses include:

  • A 14-year old Buckskin mare;
  • A 16-year-old black gelding bearing a rocking "M" brand on its left hind quarter;
  • A 12-year-old black mare bearing a circle "M" brand on its left hind quarter; 
  • A 15-year-old Sorrell gelding bearing a rocking "V" brand in its left front quarter and a "K" brand on its right hind quarter; and
  • A 7-year-old gray mare.

Stout said that all the missing horses belong to university students and were used in the school's rodeo team. The horses would have taken part in the annual SAU Rodeo now underway, he said.

Anyone with information about the theft or the whereabouts of the missing horses should call the SAU Police Department at 870/235-4100.
