An Omaha couple awoke Thursday morning to feed their two horses and discovered one had a shortened tail.
“God almighty, someone’s cut off her tail,” Ron Hendryx said.
Someone had snipped the tail off of 5-year-old Lucy, an American quarter horse, overnight Wednesday at the Hendryx acreage in South Omaha.
It may have been the first incident of a horse’s tail being cut in Douglas County, said Kelli Brown, director of field operations for the Nebraska Humane Society.beemerphill, nashvillebrook, roguevalley and 2 othersjdpriestly, 7wo7rees like this"P.S. please if you get a chanse put some flowrs on Algernons grave in the bak yard.": Flowers for Algernon
