Shilo, his halter, lead, and bridle were taken from the barn. Barn doors where closed. There is evidence that after crossing the property he was taken into the ‘Foothills Trails’ system and about a mile away was loaded into a horse trailer.
Shilo is a 17.1 hand, 7 yr old Thoroughbred bay with a star lower irregular blaze, left front sock, and two hind socks. He does have a lip tattoo that includes the numbers 67587. He is broke to ride and is a preliminary jumper.
