    The fact that this is branded a ‘stupid law’ just shows how ignorant some folks are in regards to history. While this may be classed as a ‘minor offence’ these days, it must be remembered that there was a time when the horse was a means, not only of transportation, but a means of making a living. Also, with the vast distances involved in places like the US, stealing someone’s horse while away from civilisation, was practically sentencing them to die. Horse theft was an extremely serious crime. In fact it was one of the most serious crimes one could commit.
