A South Dakota horse owner is offering a $2,000 reward for information about the theft of mane and tail hair from his 10-year-old palomino mare. T.J. Aisenbrey told police Friday that his horse, Sundance, had her flaxen mane and tail hair cut for the second time in a month and a half. The report comes as Wyoming officials are investigating an estimated 100 cases of horsehair thefts in several counties. Aisenbrey's horse is housed in a paddock and barn on the western edge of Rapid City. The Pennington County Sheriff's Office has no suspects in the case. The 59-year-old Aisenbrey says he's "totally upset" about the vandalism and says, "If you saw it, you'd be disgusted."
