Nothing new, sadly. She is supposedly in Pennsylvania. Flyers, vets, farriers, horse traders and auctions are all aware of her. Just heartbreaking not knowing!

If you report the brand to the brand inspector if they see her (for coggins check or auction run) they will seize her and hold her untill the police arrive.

Thank you for the advice. I will pass the information along to the rescue. They may have already done that, but I'm not sure. Any help is great!

Remind me to never consider a horse from a rescue. One pays a fee, feeds and vets the horse, perhaps pays for training and then you get only your fee back if you return the horse? I think this rescue in particular is going overboard in wanting this horse back. Since the horse is out of state, if it is, it could be 3 states away or crossed the Canadian border. This rescue also tells me that they can afford the services of an attorney. So that's where donation money goes?

Their attorney volunteers his time and fee is waived for the rescue. Their donations go to feeding, medicating, vetting, farrier services, etc. With 14 horses in rescue at this time, they are maxed out. They put more money into the horses than they ever get back in adoption fees. Moon was adopted for $400, instead of letting the rescue take her back and get her money back, she put her on craigslist for $300. No excuse.
They also go to every event around the tri-state area to educate the public. This is a good rescue and they are doing their best to keep Moon from going to slaughter. If she was in a great home, that would be different. They need to know she is ok.

While I agree that I would rather own my own horse, this lady signed a contract stating she did not and was willing to do everything needed and agreed with the rescue.

It sounds like the horse is in a specific location and that it's not a wild goose chase. I applaud the efforts to get the horse back to a known safe location.

I prefer to own mine as well, but I do have one mare I adopted from this rescue. I also have the peace of mind that if something happens to me, she will be back in the rescue and safe. My other two are in my will to go to the rescue.

Sounds like a good set up. Regardless of our preferences this lady agreed to the conditions and broke the agreement. That is that.

Fingers crossed! And by the way... I think what he is doing is illegal. He is withholding information needed in the case of a STOLEN horse and now he asking for money to give info?? NO, that's not right. The rescue are 100% in the right and he is in the wrong so I hope this story has a happy ending and they get her back!

They should be able to get her back legally, but those things take forever!!
