Help Us Find Our Horses!

Wed Feb 18, 2015, 3:08 PM

Oak Brooke Stables are sending out an urgent appeal to other stable owners to help them find their missing horses whom were stolen from their property sometime last week



Plea for Help by OakBrookeStables

 


How to find our horses

This is a great RP opportunity for anybody looking for some interactions between stables. This also allows new avenues for your stories if you ‘choose’ to find one of our horses. We ask that if you are going to find one of our ponies that you do RP it out a little and don’t just hand them back to us as we’d love to hear your stories! If you commit to finding a pony and then don’t have the time any more please say as there is no pressure and that horse will be put up to allow someone else to find it.

 

Here are the horses again that need found;

To tell me that you are going to ‘find’ a horse please note me with;

 

Horse you would like to find;

Are you up for RPing with me through images and/or text?;

 

After that I will note you back with a general scenario that I have thought up for the horse. I have tried to generalise these as much as I can but I still want some control over my horses as I love them as I’m sure many of you will understand only too well. I will not be taking horses off this list when somebody has ‘claimed’ their story as I want it to be a surprise when/if they are found. If the horse you would like to claim has already been taken I will note you a few alternatives you may like, or you can ask about any others. If you are not fussy on what horse but have an idea about the storyline you would like to play out please still note me as there is likely one that will fit that or can be moulded to fit as you will still have 95% of the control of what happens! It is more the state the character that I get back at the end is in that I care about!

I am happy for this to take a while, I mean otherwise I’d be finding them myself! Any timescale is okay with me really as long as I have got a few back six months from now!

If you have any questions or if I've forgotten to add anything please tell me!

The police arrived fifteen minutes earlier, in no particular hurry. A tall large man and his skinny counterpart got out of the car in their fluorescents.

“We got a call about a suspected burgulary?” He asked, seeing no particular scene of carnage.

“Yes, yes that’s right,” Elly said, wheeling herself over to the officer. “We’ve had eleven horses stolen but we haven’t looked in the stable as there is evidence at the doorway and we didn’t want to disturb it. But I’m 90% sure that there are no horses in there.” She explained irraticly.

“Right okay, we’ll take a look around. Thank you for not disturbing evidence,” he said, giving a subtle nod.

“Are we okay to go into the house?” Elly enquired, pointing to the other side of the yard.

“Ehh, not for the moment, but we’ll search there first so you can if you’d like,” the skinny officer offered.

Elly was beginning to calm down, her thoughts were more organised and although this was still overwhelming she was managing to string her words together better and get her point across.

“That’s okay, thank you, we’ll sit in the lorry. Oh, by the way one of our employees is galloping around the land to see if he can find any of the horses.”

“Thanks for letting us know.”

Elly wheeled herself up back into the lorry, knowing that there was nothing more she could do. She sighed and shifted herself over onto the chair at the table.

Skye followed her up into the lorry and saw Elly logging onto her laptop.

“What you up to?” Skye asked curiously, wondering why on earth she was on her laptop now of all times.

“Searching the for sale ads.” Elly said bluntly, deep in concentration.

“Sale ads?”

“Yes, I am seeing if any of our horses have been put up for sale.”

“Why don’t you send out an e-mail to all the stable owners we know?” Skye suggested, sitting down opposite Elly.

“Now that is a good idea!” Elly exclaimed, leaning forward. She began typing furiously, occasionally pausing to think of what next to type. A few minutes later she leant back again and bent down the laptop lid.

“Do you think we’ll get them all back?” She asked Skye hesitantly.

“I don’t know Elly, you hear about all these crimes all over the country where they don’t get them back but we are a big stable and know stable owners all over the world so I’d imagine our chances of getting them back are higher than most.”

“That’s true I suppose,” Elly sighed. “I just still can’t believe it…”

“Neither can I, it has hit us all hard, we were doing so well internationally now and I can’t believe that over half of our horses are gone.”

The girls sat in silence for a minute before they began to hear horse hooves trotting along the road.

“Wait, is that two sets of shoes?” Skye asked, jumping to her feet and running to the lorry door. She stuck her head out of the door and glnced down the road to see Olly onboard a sweaty Rain trotting along holding a leadrope. At the end of the lead rope was a very muddy and bedraggled Cricket.

Skye glanced back at Elly, “It’s Cricket!” she exclaimed.

Elly hastily transferred to her chair and rolled out the lorry where Skye was greeting Olly, Rain and Cricket.

“He was out by the beach,” Olly explained. “He already had the leadrope attached so it looks like he could have escaped when they were loading them all up.”

“He is quite cold,” Skye stated, feeling the base of his ears. “I’m not surprised though because he has been outdoors without a rug, clipped.”

“Any idea if the police are finished in the barn?” Elly asked, looking particularly at Skye.

“I don’t know, sorry but we should go over and see because we  need rugs and Rain needs to cool off.”

Olly jumped off Rain and handed Skye Cricket’s leadrope. They walked over to the stables slowly, all exhausted to see the police just coming out.

“Is that one of the missing horses?” The bigger man asked, pointing at the bedraggled bay stallion.

“Yes, we think he escaped as he had the leadrope attached. It also means that the people knew what they were doing as they didn’t just herd them up, they led them in,” Olly explained.

“Right, okay, thank you for that.” He replied, scribbling away in his notebook.

“Did you find anything in the stables? Can we go in yet?” Elly asked impatiently.

“No, we didn’t find anything in the stables apart from the bolt that had been cut, and now you mention it, the lack of leadropes. But yes, go ahead in.”

“Thank you. What are you going to do now?”

“Well, there’s not much more we can do apart from keep an eye on sales and put pictures on social media to make them ‘hot’ horses so hopefully the thieves won’t be able to sell them but I wouldn’t be surprised if they had exported them as it looks like you are a very reputable successful stables so your horses would be worth a lot of money.”

“Oh well, thank you for coming out. We’ve already e-mailed the other stables about it so I really hope that we get them back.”

“I really hope you do as well, please give us a call if there is anything we can help you with or with any updates.”

“We will, thank you!”

Thought I'd try a palette challenge for this next part of the story and I must say I enjoyed it immensely!

Homeward Bound by OakBrookeStables

The plane journey was uneventful. All the horses, bar Lady were used to flying but they had sedated Lady as on the way over.

When they landed they sighed with relief. Home soil. It was only another half an hour of driving before they’d be back at the stables.

As it was a very quiet local airport they allowed the stable’s lorry to be driven onto the runway so the horses could go straight into the lorry when they were taken off the plane. The horses were fed up with all of this travelling and were playing up when they were being taken off the plane, prancing around and some even rearing and trying to take off. Skye and Olly tried to sooth them the best they could but it was hard. Too keep them quiet and content for the last half an hour Elly had made up some speedy-beet and attached the feed bowls inside the lorry which all the horses were delighted about, who wouldn’t love an extra dinner?

“Have we got everything?” Olly asked, opening the driver side door of the lorry.

“I believe so!” Skye shouted back, giving Elly a push up the steep ramp into the lorry. Elly nodded in agreement, but she didn’t really care, she wanted to get back to the rest of her ponies who had probably been getting grass bellies over the last few days.

Olly jumped in and started the lorry which roared in complaint, it had been enjoying the time off!

Elly spent the journey at the table with Skye going through and analysing her notebooks, putting results and speaking to her about what they could improve upon as a whole.

“I do think the whole show went well,” Skye said, trying to say something helpful. “I’d love if next time we had some timetables made up which showed us what time we need to be there plaiting up and what time we need to get warmed up at, because when you’re stressed you just need something to look at to calm yourself down and say ‘well I’ve got 5 minutes yet to put these boots on’ or be like ‘oh, I should have been warming up 10 minutes ago’. You know, that kind of stuff? And what would be even better is if we got one each but then had like mobile copies of everyone else’s too because it’s nice to know where the others are if you want to join them or something.”

“That’s a good idea!” Elly squealed. She was very excited to do some more organisation work. She did try not to get too obsessive over timetables and little things like that in case they did not want it but they did want it so she was more than happy to oblige.

“Eh – guys…” Olly called through to the living area, his voice hesitant. “The fields are empty.”

“What do you mean…empty?...” Elly exclaimed. She ran her fingers through her hair, a nervous habit, and tried to lean over to see out of the windscreen but she wasn’t in her wheelchair.

Skye quickly clambered her way up to the front of the lorry and looked out, seeing what Olly could see.

“Shit.” Skye’s heart was in her mouth, and she was filling with dread. She turned to Elly. “Would your friend have taken the horses inside?”

“No, I don’t think so – I mean not unless the weather was extremely bad. She normally just rugs them up.”

Elly’s stomach started to churn. It was killing her not being able to see what they were on about. She wanted to see, just in case they missed them.

Olly stopped the lorry in the middle of the yard, not bothering to park. He quickly jumped out and Skye came to help Elly quickly get in her chair so she could get out of the lorry to see for herself.

She looked around. The place was abandoned.

“They must have escaped or something.” Elly concluded. To her it seemed like the only reasonably explanation.

“The might have been stolen…” Skye trailed off. She was scanning the fields and could see no obvious signs of breakages in the fence line but she couldn’t see all of the fields as the remaining eleven horses were split between quite a few.

“I’ll tack up Rain and take her around the fields to look for any signs of escape,” Olly said, already opening the back of the lorry. Skye and Elly both helped unloading the rest of the horses and placed them all in a field until they assessed what had happened.

Olly was off cantering through the fields within minutes, checking the perimeter of every fence whilst the girls stayed to see if they could see any signs that they may have been burgled.

They first went over to the stable building. The external lock had been cut by bolt cutters and the door was half ajar.

“Shit Elly, I think we really were burgled.” Skye exclaimed. Skye wasn’t one for swearing but there were no other words to express the situation.

“I think you were right.” Elly replied, stunned. She took out her phone to dial the police.

“999 – What’s your emergency?” The operator asked

“I think we’ve been burgled. All of our horses are gone and there are signs of forced entry to our stable blocks.”

“Okay Ma’am, where are you?”

“Oak Brooke Stables, in Caithness.”

“Can I ask what was taken?”

“Eleven horses, and we’re not sure what else, we haven’t gone inside the stables as it would mean disturbing the scene.”

“Okay, we have some officers on their way to you, just stay calm and try not to touch anything that may be evidence.”

“Thank you.”

Elly hung up the phone and sighed.

“What the hell did we do to deserve this?” She asked, despairingly. “We’re bloody lucky we had so many horses at the show otherwise we’d have absolutely nothing left.”

“There are so many bad people in this world that cannot make an honest penny. But don’t worry, if the police don’t find the horses, we will.” Skye assured.
