Crook steals hair from horse's mane

Posted: Updated:
CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Desperate times have led crooks to steal copper and catalytic converters, but here's a new one - a Clarksville woman said a thief has stolen her horse's hair, and she wants the culprit caught.

"Whoever it is, I hope they made a pretty penny," Lauren Crocker said.

Crocker said her pride is her horse, All That Jazz, nicknamed 'Jazzy'.

"She is sassy and has an attitude," Crocker said. "She'll just prance and show her stuff."

Crocker's family owns a boarding facility on Vaughn Road with plenty of water, greenery and acres for the horses to run. Crocker never thought this area would end up being the scene of a crime. Earlier this week, someone came onto the Crocker family's property, went into the stable, found Jazzy in her stall and cut off her mane.

"She was throwing her head," Crocker said. "She was very uneasy. I said, 'what's wrong with you?' People are going to think I'm crazy, but she turned for me to see her hair, and my mouth dropped."

Jazzy was missing more than a foot of her mane's hair.

In addition to brushes and fishing lines, horse hair is used in bows for violins and other instruments. Crocker claims the hair cut from Jazzy's mane could be valued at $500.

"It'll probably take about four years to get back to its normal length," she said. "It was definitely a malicious act. It was definitely intentional."
