Please forgive is this is inappropriate, but would like to pass on this message about a stolen appaloosa mare. Very high class and possible stolen more for breeding rather than to send to the killer.
Is also Listed on Net posse and has the authoritiees out looking and investigatiing.
Forwarded message follows:
My horse Pokadot has been stolen from Bill Wiklunds farm in Soper Oklahoma.
He knows she was stolen because they went through 2 pastures of mares and
hotwire to take Pokadot out of a roundpen. They replaced all of the
hotwire. They didn't take any of the other horses so they knew what they
were looking for. You can see a photo of her on my home page at
www.southernwindsranch.com She is 16 hands and weighs approx 1,150 I am
offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts -or safe
return( no questions asked if returned). I can be reached at cell phone
901.647.5793 or home phone of 662.429.5793 or office phone of 662.429.1556

I read about this on the Pony Boy newsletter.
People are disgusting...stealing an animal is akin to stealing a kid. I'd be totally crushed and heartbroken to lose one of mine. I sure hope they get her back.

She is not home yet but will be soon. I will be sure to let you know when I know. Sorry it has taken me so long to get this out but I have been with Nell in the nursing home all day.

Thank you all for any and all efforts you made to help bring Pokadot home. When horse owners work together horses come home!!!
