A man suspected of burglarizing a home last Thursday tried to buck the accusation when he said a horse was the actual perpetrator.

Steve Ferguson bought a home in Pasco County, Florida, last year with the intention of repairing and restoring it before listing it as a rental.

Ferguson, who held the belief that the location of his new house was in a neighborhood that was frequently targeted for break-ins, installed a security system on his property since he would not be living there and wanted to keep watch over the home. He also posted “No Trespassing” signs as an additional attempt to deter criminal activity.

A motorist traveling down the interstate at an alleged high speed made an impact with the back of a travel trailer containing two horses, and one of the horses was hurt in the accident. The driver who allegedly caused the crash is suspected of having been under the influence of alcohol when the incident occurred.

On Saturday, in the pre-dawn hours, a man was traveling down the Interstate while transporting two horses to Texas. Around 2:30 am a vehicle crashed into the back of the trailer carrying the horses and destroyed the rear door.

One of the horses being transported, an 800-pound Appaloosa named Oliver, was flung around the inside of the trailer with force during the accident and he became free of his safety harness allowing him to exit the trailer. The animal was bleeding from his back leg, but he began to trot down the road a bit before the driver caught him and created a makeshift compression bandage to try to attend to the injury until emergency medical help arrived.

A Florida woman caught allegedly riding her horse while highly intoxicated in early November is now facing additional charges, and the loss of custody of her horse when a judge deemed she was unfit to provide proper care for the animal.

Donna Byrne was celebrating her 53rd birthday on November 2, when she had decided to ride her horse, Bo Duke, to a local store to buy herself spurs and spur straps.

A concerned person who saw Byrne contacted the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and reported that a woman who appeared disoriented was riding a horse down a busy road.
