Please help me find my mare

I've been desperately looking for my mare for a few years now. I had her till she was almost two and raised her from birth (Her mom had to be put down). There is a long sad story to this, but out of respect for the people I'm not going to go into much detail. So to make things quicker, I worked at the farm in exchange for rent. Some things had come up and we had to leave asap. When we went to bring my hose with us, the landlords sisters had called the cops on us saying we were stealing his horses. Since I wasn't given any papers with her (She was just a gift) we were forced to bring her back. The land lord was always so cruel to the horses I when I lived there caught him quite a few times taring the skin off my horses back and but with the jagged ends of a cattle brush and pouring used motor oil all through the new wounds. This was normal with him (And I never stood up for it. I fought against him a lot and did everything I could to stop it). So I've been so worried and doing everything I can to find her. Unfortunately the horses disappeared from his property without a trace and I'm just hoping to god my horse is still alive. I love her to pieces and would give my right arm to just know where or at least how she is (seeing as my last words to her was a promise I would get her back). She means the world to me. She would be about 6 years old now. She's a tobiano painted Percheron Clyde cross. Her names Savanna and if she takes onto her moms height she should end up reaching close to 19hh. She was last seen on Wolfe Island Ontario. Thank you for your time and help. Ki~


(When she was just a weanling. She might have gone back to brown, she should have kept changing colors)

I hate it when people mistreat any animal. I wish you the best of luck in your search. My horse (see avitar) was abused at one of her previous homes.

Luckily your horse has very distinct markings and maybe someone will recognize her.. I wish you all the luck in the world. I hope and pray that you find her.. May God truly bless you in your search to find her.

Your story breaks my heart! I don't know how people can mistreat animals. Good luck in your search and don't give up. A horse in Florida was missing for almost a year before she was found and returned to her owner. Your horse has distinctive markings. Someone will notice and hopefully report it to you. Can you query the landlord's neighbors? Someone nearby must know something. God bless you and your horse!

It is very sad that your horse was abused, however I am curious as to how long you left her at the farm before you decided to go back for her and what your arrangements with the barn were? Did you pay board for the time you weren't able to work? Perhaps I misread, but from what you have written, I get the idea that you left for a while then came back at some later time to get the horse?

I know it might be hard to hear, but you you are just as responsible for those injuries to your horse: why in the world would you have "worked off" board for someone who treated your horse so miserably? That is enough of something "coming up" that I'd find another barn and work off board, or find my horse a new permanent home with people who loved her if I couldn't find and afford better for her. Why would you have left unexpectedly and leave your horse there under ANY circumstances, knowing the people were abusive? Something about this story doesn't add up to me, I'm sorry.

I hope she has found a loving new home with people who can afford her, love her, respect her and treat her right. You should be happy for her if she has.

I went back for her the very next day. The reason why she stayed was because when we finally got another trailer ready (We moved quite far so it was expensive in gas) all the horses were gone off the property. I did everything "I" could at the time, but I was still just a kid living with my mother who was the one who was attacked, also making it harder to go onto the island because my only ride was afraid to go back on the island (I don't have much for family and all my friends where a good 3 hours away). I didn't know what the landlord was like with the horses until after I moved, and it was a work for rent, so it was more for a place to live than board (Hence why as soon as I found out what he was like I immediately started looking for another place to board, unfortunately this all happened just as I found a place). But in the least I do agree and just want to know and would give my right arm to know if she was at least in a good home.

Where are you located? Where else have you advertised her as missing?

Also, if you say you were just a kid, how would it be in your power to find another place to board? I'm kind of confused, lol. But if you're somewhat close to me, I will try and watch for her at sales and such.

At the moment I'm up by Ottawa.
I've advertised through all barns in the area at the time and after went on to other barns in surrounding areas as well as a few horse sale sites.

It was up to me cause my mother was really devastated from the whole ordeal and couldn't really look in the direction of even dealing with the horse at the moment, so left it up to me. And thank you so much~ D= <3
