Sold - Not forgotten - Now Missing.

Sorry for the weird title, I didn't even know how to begin to think of names for this.

A horse I sold earlier on in the spring (one that both I & hubby loved very dearly as he was hubby's first horse), has recently been stolen from his new owners - I found out via a facebook group/page for local horse ads; and I'm just so confused as to what I'm feeling right now.

It's such a weird mixture of things; fearing for the horse's safety (obviously), but also fear that the people I sold him too aren't good enough, hoping he turns out, saddness & regret for selling him, hoping he forgives us for getting rid of him, etc. Ugh just too much to identify.

I know it's not the new owner's fault, they're very nice, responsible people with exceptional horse knowledge.

... it's just a sad thing that's happened.

*****
HIS NAME IS WHISKEY.
4-5 YEAR OLD DARK BAY TB GELDING.
APPROX 17-17.2HH
EXTREMELY PIGEON TOED IN THE FRONT
LOVES PEOPLE - VERY FRIENDLY.
MISSING FROM PORT ELGIN, ON, CAN

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

Subbing to this

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Start sharing it around facebook. I know a lot of the various lost dog groups have great results. Nothing to loose trying.

You can also post it in the Stolen Horses part of this forum.

And I agree with an above poster, there are tons of horse sale/rescue/missing groups on facebook you should alert them. There are even some for Ontario specifically.

Make a report with netposse. They are a great organization who do a lot of work to recover stolen horses.
