Went out this morning to give Sam his biscuit of hay for breakfast, as I approach I see he's nekkid! Strange I thought to myself, I thought he had his cotton combo on (for non horsey peeps that a rug that covers his neck as well as his body). Had a brief look for it, but was still half asleep (I get up in the morning and head straight out to feed him).
So this afternoon, go to give him his dinner, still no rug, so wandered around the 3 big paddocks looking for it. No sign - checked the gates to the main road were all closed, they were.
Now either I've completely lost my marbles or someone has come in and pinched it! Which I still find hard to believe. But considering it's buckled in 3 places along his neck, one on his chest and has leg straps how the hell could he have wriggled out of it!
I remember checking it last night to make sure it wasn't wet, poor sod today is covered in mozzie bites - I found his old rug, but it doesn't have the neck bit, at least he has SOME protection tonight.
What utter utter busstards if it has been stolen!
The only other culprits I can point a finger at are the kangaroos that share his paddocks, I have this picture of them wrapping it around their shoulders like a cape and pretending to be superheros!
