The achievement "Strange Things are Afoot" should be taken off this page. You will not get the achievement by doing this, because Poppycock is a prerequisite for it, so you would have already gotten the achievement.
You can just steal the horse back... I just did and it still said he was a freeman, or tie it to the hitch enxt to where you turn it in and when you whistle it'll come to you and it wont be counted as stealing.
