Two South Dakota Horses Missing

Two horses are missing from Rapid City, South Dakota. They were stolen either late evening on May 16, or early morning on May 17. One is a Quarter Horse mare who is described as a smoky dun, about 15 hands in height. The mare has a few white hairs in the middle of her forehead, no brand, and was wearing slide plates and a navy blanket with silver trim.

A red leopard appaloosa gelding is missing as well. Standing at 16 hands, the horse has a marking which looks like a “D” on his right hip formed by spots. This horse has been known to flap his lips when bored.

Either of these horses might be shown or used for reining. If you have any information which might aid in the recovery these animals, please contact:
