I was just informed of a situation of a stolen horse who was just taken right outside of Roanoke VA. I don't personally know this woman, but she attended my school at one point in time and this is being passed through everyone in the alumni, hoping they will pass it along to others.
From the owner:
"My horse stolen from my farm while I was finishing radiation treatment out of town: Fortune, 16.3 bright bay HolsteinerX with blaze, left hind sock and big, old fashioned, head. Was stolen when a former boarder was moving her two horses and created a diversion to allow a known kill buyer to sneak Fortune through a side door and into the trailer. Please share this with anyone who knows the auction circuits. I fear he may ship directly to slaughter for a few bucks. The local police were little help since I'm out of town but I will get a file reported locally and with state police as it was criminal, not civil. Please keep an eye out for him... super sweet, cuddly kind of horse but will give the hairy eyeball in some situations."
I'm waiting on information on who to contact in case we see him. I'll update when I get it and I've informed them to post his stats on netposse.com.
And because my daughter won't leave me alone until I put this on here...
