Two males believed to be "travelers" are going uninvited into livery yards and stables all over Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northants, in a silver grey van offering to shoe people's horses at two thirds of the usual price. They claim that they are working for a local farrier who is off sick (not true). A few days after these visits some of the yards were burgled. The van they used was fully kitted out with all the equipment necessary to shoe a horse and it matches a description of a van stolen in a burglary at a (genuine) farrier's home address in Watford earlier this year.
