Still no new updates. Very depressing.

Unless a court has ordered that the man reveal who has the horse or it's whereabouts he is not obligated to tell anyone anything. That is his right.

This is true. Hoping she is in safe hands until they can track her down.

Why do people immediately jump to the conclusion that because this rescue is searching for a horse that it's being abused somehow? In all my years of being around many many horse owners, I think I've come across two that were, IMO too harsh with a horse at times. Not everyone feels the need to treat them like sucky babies and that's where the trouble begins.

I did not get the impression people are thinking she was abused...?

If your child ran away from home would you not worry about them?

Wanting to know she is safe/hoping she is safe is not the same as saying "she's not with us so she must be being abused!"

Also, until they have the mare in their care not only can they NOT care for her and make sure she is safe and provided for but they cannot prevent her from being sold again or traded or ending up on a truck to slaughter, etc. Wanting to know her whereabouts and hoping she is safe isn't jumping to conclusions.

FWIW While I have yet to meet anyone who I would directly say abused their horses I can think of a MILLION people I would NEVER sell a horse to...

Have you posted anything in the area? Might be quickest for the rescue to just offer to buy the horse back for a reasonable fee.

Hmm... wonder if legally that would be an option and if the court would then order their money reimbursed (though that doesn't mean anything!)

The impression I got was the man seemed very set on the amount of money he wanted, which does not seem like a reasonable amount though obv we don't know the details.

Doubt the rescue has the money for that. Nor is it fair, though obviously it is an option. Nor does the rescue paying mean they'll see the mare..

Just knowing she was in a safe home would help considerably. The rescue is continuing its efforts to find her. Someone had even called the man and acted like they were interested in buying a horse from him. He is a well known horse trader and loves the auctions. The rescue will never quit trying to find Moon, but is also realistic. Paying a large amount of money to get her back is taking away from the horses in need that are coming into the rescue and are currently rehabbing. It is a huge disappointment and heartache for everyone who knows Moon. Thank you guys for posting your opinions on here as well. Flyers are posted all over the tristate area, other rescues know her information and information has been faxed to as many vets as possible. Auctions are aware as well, but we all know how that can go.

It seems the search for Moon is at a standstill. We are truly hoping she is enjoying a loving life, but we all have "those" thoughts that run through our minds. If we just knew she was safe.......
