"We were loading everything to go home. I had them tied and didn't have them tied securely I guess. I had them in slip knots, and the managed to get them undone at the same time and ran off."
We were loading everything to go home and had them tied. The horses came untied and ran off into a trail. I followed them for about 15 miles into the Fourche Mountain Trails at Idle Nook Horse Camp. They had gotten so far that they were into the four-wheeler trails and that is where I lost them. The next day we searched for them again, and the trail went across the slick rock on Turner Creek, and we went west up Turner creek. They crossed the stream again and went up Fouche Mountain, and we lost the trail. We went back each weekend and started where we lost them. One has lost a shoe. Mingo lost the halter, but we think that Apache Jane may still have hers on.

Blake Hughes asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating his horse. Mr. Hughes advised that Mingo & Apache Jane were last seen Tuesday, May 31, 2016. They were loading everything to go home, and the horses were tied. The horses came untied and ran off into a trail.

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.
“We were loading everything to go home. I had them tied and didn't have them tied securely I guess. I had them in slip knots, and the managed to get them undone at the same time and ran off.", says Blake Hughes. “I'm so ready to have them home. Please, Lord, Help. I can't imagine not having them in my life.” Mr. Hughes reported that the horses had gotten so far that they were into the four-wheeler trails and that is where he lost sight of them. He has continued to search for Mingo & Apache Jane and goes back each weekend to search as Mr. Hughes resides in Texas. There is a guide, Gary Emberson, that is from the area that search’s daily. Mingo lost his halter, but they believe Apache Jane may still have her own.
