Did Bishop Eddie Long Steal A Horse's Tail To Make Himself A Wig?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in Montana said at least two horse owners have called police to report the theft of hair from their animals.

The Gallatin County Sheriff`s Office said Sandy O`Rourke of Three Forks called Oct. 17 and reported someone had taken the tails off two of her horses and cut part of the mane from a third, The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported Thursday."

This might seem like a harmless prank, but it`s nothing short of animal abuse. Although the horses aren`t injured, the hapless creatures are inconvenienced as they rely on their tails to swat at flies.

If the perpetrator is caught he should be charged with trespassing, vandalism and cruelty to animals.

Why on Earth would anyone want to steal horse hair? Horse hair has various uses including brushes and bows of musical instruments. I doubt that some fool stole hair from a horse to make a brush.

The most likely scenario is that Bishop Eddie Long stole the horse`s hair to make himself a new toupee. Only a toupee made from a horse`s tail can top Eddie Long`s infamous Jheri Curl wig.

Eddie Long is a horse`s rear end, and a toupee made of horse hair would fit him well.
