Weld County authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a days-old Gypsy colt that was reported stolen recently from a farm outside of Ft. Lupton.
That's according to a post on the Weld County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.
According to the most recent post, investigators have so far gotten no leads in the case. The colt, which was born four days ago, is shown in the photo attached to this article. According to the post, the colt went missing sometime between 10:45 p.m. Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. Wednesday from the 13600 block of Weld County Road 18 1/2, just north of Ft. Lupton.
The colt is valued at $12,000.
According to the post;
''Note the pattern of its coat, which is unique to each animal. Take particular note of the unique pattern of the coat near the colt's hind legs.
Although it's possible a colt this young could survive from bottle feeding, it's more likely it's been paired with a nurse mare.
Anyone who thinks they've encountered a similar--looking horse or who has any information about this case is asked to call Weld County Non-Emergency Dispatch at (970) 350-9600 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).''
