I know that I don’t have a huge blog following, mostly family (Hi Grandma!) but I’m putting this out there anyways, because if I was in this situation with Willow, I know that I would be devastated.
A fellow COTHer posted on the forums that her horse had been stolen from the Roanoke, VA area and (as COTHers do) it’s quickly going viral in every media outlet possible. I’m adding my blog to that as well.
He’s a 16.3 hand bright bay Holsteiner cross gelding. He has a special hot shoe job, including pour in pads in front, and hardware all around. Without his shoes, he will be dead lame. He was taken from a barn in the Roanoke, VA area by a known kill buyer with the last name of Pastel. This man was working together to steal the horse by a woman whose name that I don’t know. He was stolen while his owner was out of state receiving treatment for cancer. It doesn’t get much lower than that.
Let’s plaster Fortune and his information as far and wide as we can, and I’m begging all my readers, Twitter and Facebook friends, horsey or not to keep your eyes peeled for this handsome guy and hope that we can flush him out before he meets a much worse fate!
If anybody has any information, please contact me directly at finallyforeverafter at gmail dot com. The owner also has the information out with netposse, I believe. I’ll update this post as I learn more, so keep checking back in!
