“There was no one in the grass,” Jacobson said.

‘We have looked around us. They must have done it from the top of the road.

‘Because?’ she said.

Adding: ‘Someone is purely evil… that’s the only thing I can think of. Why would you do something like this?

‘She didn’t want to get caught. She would run around and challenge us,” Jacobson said of Buttercup.

Buttercup is a big loss for another of Jacobson’s horses, Peanut, who is blind in one eye and was “pair-bonded” to Buttercup for safety.

“She would just follow Buttercup and say, ‘Okay, where are you going? I better go there,'” Jacobson explained.

According to local police, no suspect has been identified.

It comes just ten weeks after another horse was shot and killed in Washington.

In December, horse owner Delanie Greer discovered her beloved horse LeMon had been shot and killed outside her stable in Tacoma.

Brandon Gerner, 41, killed LeMon as a sacrifice to his friend Kody Olsen, who died after a shootout involving Pierce County police, prosecutors alleged.

“My horse was shot three weeks ago on my parents’ property,” Greer wrote on Facebook.

“Every morning I have to come up and remind myself that you’re gone,” Greer added in her heartfelt tribute to her beloved pet.

“People say you didn’t deserve this, but no living being deserves what happened to you,” he added.

Greer wrote after Gerner’s arrest: “He says he did it as a sacrifice, but in your death you linked him to another murder… even in death you are helping people.”
