JACKSON, Wyo. — Wyoming authorities have not been able to find two horses that escaped from the Teton County Fairgrounds.

The Jackson Hole News-Guide reports (http://bit.ly/2pHbqP4 ) the horses had gone missing Sunday after a memorial barrel race. They escaped from an electric fence enclosure.

Shyla Nicholas, an owner of the horses, says she does not think they were stolen. She says they were within the fence in the middle of the night and were gone when she got up to feed them.

Nicholas says both gelding horses are 8 years old. One of them, Salt, is solid gray and the other, Boots, is sorrel with a white strip down its face. Both are branded with the number “41.”
