with that back right hoof marking and the same build. Did you text the seller or the missing horse contact? Most certainly call the people that have the stolen add up. Give them a link to the page and the phone number as soon as possible. Help them bring their boy home.

Which stolen horse do you think this horse may be?

I had a stallion stolen I would be checking for geldings within a week of the theft.

As far as calling about horses that you think may he the stolen horse. As a lot of people (and Debi above I'm sure) remember Max was a paint gelding that was stolen in Illinois a few years back. He is very similarly marked to my stallion. Three separate times I had police out thinking my horse was Max, I was always gracious to help them out and let the owners know it was me again so they wouldn't make the drive amend disappointed.

Thank you for trying to helP someone find their lost horse.

On the first horse the sock appears to be pretty straight across while on the second horse the sock slopes up towards the back. But I'd need a better picture of the first horse in order to tell for sure.

this whole thing is confusing but why couldn't it be her stud that got gelded?

I looked at your pics a few times making sure it wasn't the stolen horse. :)

Ditto, to what Debi said, the thieves will do everything to gelding them, coloring and cutting their manes and tails. The stolen horse usually does not even look like your horse. You have to look so closely for specific markings. That is why the microchip and freeze-brand is a great identifying marker. Along with a lot of pictures of you with all sides of your your and a friend as a witness that it is your horse. So many things are little details and important details.

I had Debi come do a seminar not just for me , personally , but for my horse friends and community to education folks in our area. The southeast and northeast seems to get hit the most, respectively.
But, it is every where, including internationally. So we have been around since Debi's husband , Harold's horse Idaho was stolen in 1997 from NC.

We are the Amber Alert for the horse world. We hit emails , Facebook, forums, blogs, twitter and fliers are made for auction houses and feed stores, etc.

Thanks.

Thats awesome that there are organizations for this type of thing.
As far as the horse not being hers because hes gelded..i did what i could and it was left up to her. Personally, i would have gone to see the horse. Thats just me. Im also the persno whose car was stolen and found it myself before the police did.
