Ok, ok, they weren't live horses but three of 39 life-size steel horse sculptures worth $50,000 to $60,000! "It's just pretty frustrating," Belgrade sculptor Tom Dolan said. "We're kind of in shock. Where do we go from here? How do I protect them?"

Dolan placed the sculptures on the hill on Wheat Montana Farms property north of Three Forks in September. The Broadwater County sheriff's office is investigating.
