Find My Horses Presents: NetPosse Missing Horse Alert Maryland
Sunny is home. She's home!! Except for a few scrapes and scratches and tick bites she's fine! She was in the neighboring cattle pen of 91 acres!!
"We had gone door to door to all the ranchers around here. And one day of many I was walking the road shaking a bucket of grain and the rural postal worker was coming up the road. I flagged her down and told her about my Sunny. She alerted all the people she knew and I shared my phone number with her. Sure enough the rancher who saw Sunny called her and she called me and it was our SUNNY!!!"

I was informed that Buckskin and several other horses got out of their pasture. Apparently there were witnesses that saw some young kids were going into the pasture with their four wheelers and when they left, they left all the gates wide open to the pasture. Buckskin is one of the 4 horses that are still missing.

STOLEN EQUINE – BUCKSKIN – Maryland
Mt. Airy (MONTGOMERY COUNTY), MD Friday July 8, 2016
Wednesday June 29, 2016, Valerie Vollmers’ beloved horse, Buckskin, was reported missing from his pasture off of the Medd Avenue and Pennshop Road area in Mt. Airy, MD.
Valerie Vollmers asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating her horse. Ms. Vollmers advised that she was notified by the barn manager on Wednesday June 29, 2016 that Buckskin was missing along with 3 other horses. Originally it was thought that the horses were missing. However, as further information has been secured, the horses were reportedly taken from a property where they were placed by a neighbor when he found them loose. Two of the horses have been found in Pennsylvania, however, Buckskin has not been located. Ms. Vollmers has notified Montgomery County Sheriff Department. The Sheriff Department is currently actively investigating the case a theft.
Stolen Horse International, a nonprofit organization also known as NetPosse.com, is well known as the ‘lost and found’ place for horses on the internet for the equine industry. NetPosse.com offers horse theft and equine ID education and assist in search and recovery of stolen or missing horses, as well as other equine equipment.
“I rescued Buckskin from an auction over a year ago.”, says Valerie Vollmers. Valerie recently was able to recover her other horse, Pie, that was missing. After the recovery of Pie, Ms. Vollmers later told Stolen Horse International “Oh my gosh, what a dream! Awful experience but I did it! I’ve got Pie back!” Ms. Vollmers added that she wants to find Buckskin and bring him home as well. A drone has been used to look at the property from which the horses were taken and has confirmed they are not on that property at this time. Ms. Vollmers and NetPosse.com Volunteers continue to follow up on leads that have been coming in. Ms. Vollmers would like the help of the public to get the word out about Buckskin in hopes of bring him home to be with Pie.
On June 30, 2016, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Vollmers and, in short order, began distributing the information via their NetPosse Alert (the horse community’s Amber Alert) on the Internet to hundreds of social media groups and private email contacts in an effort to rally the public to help the family.
You will find Buckskin’s webpage with information and a printable flyer in his NetPosse.com listing, which is where any updates or leads will be posted.

“Circulating Buckskin’s flyer and the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as the horse could be anywhere by now. These flyers are one tool that brings home many horses and must be posted in as many public places as possible,” says Debi Metcalfe, founder of Stolen Horse International. “And remember, not everyone has internet access. Please post Buckskin’s flyer in public places as well.”
