Invasion of the body snatcher

Had a really erie spooky experience today.
Although i am still in the construction stage of my model, i have completed some small areas, one such was a small field under a viaduct, which had the added feature of 4 horses.
This morning all 4 horses have gone!
nothing else has moved, the sheep are still there, the various people are still around the model, but all 4 horses have disappeared!
close examination reveals some mouse droppings,
any rodent experts know if a mouse would selectively take just the 4 horses?
This is wierd.
I should perhaps add that my model is in a converted garage, not the house. and that the field is bounded by track on two sides both of which had rolling stock on them which was not disturbed.
Finally No! I am not having a 'senior moment' and I did not move them myself!

I also have my layout in the garage and used to have mice and rats getting in there. I "sealed" the garage to prevent them getting access as I didn't want the problems you are now getting. It is worth trying to prevent them getting access as they will chew through all sorts of stuff.

This is how they used to get into my garage. I sealed along the bottom and around the edges of the garage door.
