Donated Horse Sculptures Stolen Near Three-Forks

Posted: Updated:

Three life-sized steel horse sculptures are missing from a herd of 39 installed on a hill north of Three Forks in southwestern Montana.

Belgrade sculptor Tom Dolan donated the horses as a gift to the state.

He says he went to the display with a professional photographer on Monday and discovered the sculptures of two horses and a colt were missing.

The horses were anchored to the ground and Dolan says it appears the thieves hammered them out and moved them with carts.

The sculptures weigh between 250 and 450 pounds.

Dolan says the missing ones are worth a total of $50,000-$60,000.
