    I agree with Desiderata. Having horses myself at one time this family has to be going threw complete agony. Has there been talk of maybe reward given ? It's ashamed but sometimes money gets people talking. Saying my prayers for the family and the horse. Hope she is found soon !!!!!!!!!

    All joking aside, this is serious. I met the family and they are truly distraught. Horses are family members, as my 5 are some of my "kids". Someone knows something and no one is talking. Horses are expensive upkeep, and have needs more than a dog or cat. Went looking ourselves at the Foundation for her. Praying for the family and the happy return of this Mare.

    I see many people have never loved an animal. Many people protect animals and care for them. You are missing a big portion of your souls. I care a lot more about this missing horse than I do the convicts and useless humans posted on here.

    What if Angel doesn't want to go back to that "bad place"?
