GARRETSON, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota horse owner wants answers after someone cut hair from his horses’ tails.

DJ Lindner says he was going to give food and water to the family’s four horses outside of Garretson on Wednesday night when he noticed two of them did not have hair on their tails.

Someone had chopped off 2 to 3 feet of the hair on Prince, a 7-year-old white horse, and 6-year-old gray horse Dolly.

Lindner tells the Argus-Leader (https://argusne.ws/2oBHSBM ) the thieves probably got three pounds of hair from each horse.

Since the tail is usually the only defense the horse has against flies, Lindner is going to braid twine to what’s left of the hair to make sure Prince and Dolly have some form of self-defense.

Authorities have no suspects.
