TB and pony stolen in Michigan--may be as far south as Texas

On April 18th, early in the morning, two of our horses disappeared in Ortonville, Michigan. The people responsible for stealing them broke down our fencing and loaded them in the street.

Ripley (or may go by the name of Skylar now) is a 17 h gray dapple thoroughbred. She's approximately 5 years old and according to her former owner has soundness issues. However, she might have been sold under the false pretenses as being a hunter/jumper candidate.

Claudia is a 11.2 h blond chestnut welsh-cross with a stripe and a white snip on her nose. She is also 5 years old and is extremely fuzzy with the remainder of her winter coat.

It is believed they may have crossed the state boarder and are headed down south to Texas or Kentucky. Pictures are available upon request as I am unable to post them on here for whatever reason. There is a reward being offered to whomever makes a positive ID. Please notify me through here with any information or call 810-869-5476. Thanks again!

oh my gosh that is TERRIBLE!!!! I'll keep an eye out, I'm in NE Ohio so they're probably long past me now, but who knows...you aren't able to post pics up on here though? Can you put links to a website on here? It would be easier to keep an eye out!

I hope you find them soon!

No, I didn't know there was a site for stolen horses! I've never had to deal with this before. Thanks, I will definitely make use of that!

Yes, I'm almost 100% sure who took them but we are having a hard time tracking her down. The local police are of no help and we're turning to the state police. Thank you so much!

I thought I saw a pony like that listed on craigslist .... I'll double check it, but that seems to be a good spot to start.

I've been looking on craigslist and maybe I missed it? If you find the link, can you please post it?
