BATH COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – A mystery involving a policeman and several horses has been solved.

According to Sergeant Jim Bowling with Kentucky State Police, on December 25 around 7:30 p.m. he discovered 22 horses in his front yard.

Bowling said he contacted several neighboring farmers, but was unable to locate the owners of the horses, until Thursday night when the owners of the horses came forward and identified the animals.

The owners said the horses were able to get loose due to damage sustained in recent storms.

All of the horses were accounted for and will return to their owners on Friday.

The reason the owners did not report the missing horses is still unclear.
