Letter to the Editor: Help us find our 17 missing horses

With the holiday season upon us, I ask: Is this truly a time of joy, goodwill and even miracles? I ask on behalf of my family’s much-loved 17 horses, who were stolen from their home this year. In this season of miracles, there is only one thing I want for Christmas – my horses (our family horses) safely returned home in time for Christmas. That’s all I want, Santa.

Earlier this spring 17 of our horses were stolen from our pastures: 16 good mares; and a red dun stallion taken from a separate pasture. Strangely enough, seven years ago his sire also disappeared from our pastures; he would have been 20 this last year. Coincidence? Or design?

It is a sad state when a rancher cannot leave livestock in a pasture and know they will be there the next day. Even worse is when 17 horses can be stolen without anyone, even neighbors surrounding that land, knowing anything about the theft. How is it possible for 17 horses to just disappear?

That’s exactly my point, they don’t just disappear. Someone knows where our horses are and the truth behind their theft. How much money do we need to offer as a reward before someone will have the courage to come forward with information about our stolen horses? I can assure everyone I am completely serious – what will it take?

They are not just horses to me, most are a part of the family – my children – and to suddenly find them gone, taken from me, is the most devastating feeling in the world. I will never give up the search for our horses and I have reason to believe there is a chance of finding them alive somewhere, hidden away, off the beaten path. All I desire is to have them safely returned home; otherwise I will continue to hunt for the truth and offer a reward until the truth behind their theft and what has happened to them comes to light.
