A 7-month-old horse valued at $20,000 was shot and killed on a ranch west of Weatherford, Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said Monday.
The filly, named “Bald-Face Lie,” was shot in the forehead with a high-powered rifle.
She was discovered Sunday morning in a pasture on the 72 Ranch, about five miles west of Weatherford.
The owners of the ranch said the filly was bred from “Light N Lena” and “Playboy’s Special Copy,” a champion line of professional cutters.
“I don’t understand how someone could do something like this,” said owner Kris Larsen.
The sheriff said investigating the shooting is a top priority.
“We won’t tolerate this behavior in our community,” Fowler said.
