    Urgent! Please help me find this horse!

    Hello. Please forgive me for this wording, I'm a slight mess. I just found out my first horse was donated to a rescue because her owners couldn't afford her. This horse was my 13th birthday present. She was my whole world and sadly, I had to sell her when we moved out of state about 5 years later. I sold her to my best friend's family (where we kept her anyhow) so I could always keep a tab on her. Now I don't know where she is and I'm trying to locate the rescue to get her back.

    She should be located somewhere in southeast kentucky around London. I know it's like finding a flea in a haystack but I will literally go get her tomorrow if I can only find her. My friend is trying to get the information. Her mother was very reluctant to give her any info and my friend is overseas for the military. We are trying hard. Any help will be appreciated. She is around 14 years old (I got her when she was 4 and I'm now 24). Chesnut and white. Her name is Fancy. One blue eye.

    I'm sorry, I can be of no help, but I wish you much luck. Why is the Mother reluctant to give up the name of the rescue?

    Thank you very much. And I don't know, I don't understand why she wont say and that terrifies me. I think maybe she's embarrassed it came down to that? Most of the other horses went to a family friend.

    How long ago was she donated to a rescue? I just don't short of contacting every rescue in the area. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    I am of no help down here in Florida but I agree that you should call every rescue you can anywhere close to you and ask. Also, just as a little glimmer of hope, you have her markings in your favor, she will be much easier to pick out then say a plain ol' bay horse etc. good luck, fingers crossed!!

    Thanks everyone. I work 11:30-8 so I'll be making a boatload of calls tomorrow morning. This is very frustrating. If I recover her it will be one long haul but I've missed this horse every day. Thanks for the well wishes!

    Good luck!!!! If it helps, I found a horse I had sold listed on a rescue site a few months back. I flipped out and called the people I sold her to (I had told them over and over I would always take her back no questions asked). I stayed up all night and called the rescue in the morning and found that she had come in with a terrible attitude bucking everyone off (the mare had never bucked with me). They kept working with her and she has already been adopted by one of the volunteers who bonded with her. She's at his ranch now in a big ole pasture and he rides her around almost everyday. I hope you find her but if not know that many rescues do a great job of rehoming horses.

    Oh no, I am so sorry that this has happened to you and your horse! Post MISSING ads on every semi local facebook horse group you can find. Contact all of the local rescues and explain your situation, even bring the photo to them. If she has a microchip or tattoo #, definitely provide that info to them as well.

    I hate to have to say it, but I would also find it disconcerting that the mother wouldn't simply give you the name of the rescue. I would also be attending ANY and all auctions (or begging a friend to go if you can't) to see if you can find her.

    Good luck in your search! I would be a complete mess if something like this happened to me. Nikkibella is right, her markings and blue eye give you a heck of a lot more of a chance to find her than if you had a plain bay or chestnut.

    Boy she's pretty.

    Oh dear! I won't be of much help but I wish you best of luck! Try going to other horse forums and posting more photos of her, maybe use Facebook and get people to share it around!
