NetPosse™ Searching for Willie, Report #NR005422
Date of Incident: January 28, 2018
Last Known Location: Cumming (Forsyth County), GA
Was taken from me under false pretense. He was going to a new home with the agreement that it would be a forever retirement home where he would be used as a pasture mate only. I have found out that she breached our contract and he did not go to the retirement pasture she had promised. Instead, he is either shipped off to auction or a kill pen. If you have seen this horse or have any information regarding his whereabouts, please contact us immediately!

This is an unusual situation in that we KNOW that all three of these ALERTS are due to the activity of a SINGLE individual. We suspect but do not know for sure at the present time, that this person has done this to other people. If you know of other victims, we stand ready to try to assist them in recovering their horses. Either have the owners contact us or send us their contact information. It MUST be the owner to file the report with us unless that person is underage. In that case, a parent or guardian is allowed to do the report.
Please be on the lookout for these horses. They may have been taken to sales or auctions. We are not certain of the exact means being used. Private sales are also an option. Look for that new horse in a pasture or stable that you don't recognize or that somebody has just recently acquired. These horses could be ANYWHERE-they could still be local or they could have been shipped to sales several states distant.
If you think you know where one of the might be, please let us know. If you can get photos, that would be wonderful. Please do not mention that you think there is a problem. Let us handle that part. Just send us the information and let us handle everything. It would be greatly appreciated. Sometimes horses will be moved or hidden if someone thinks they might be stolen and we certainly do not want that to happen.
Please share this email with your contacts. Every time it is shared, it will mean that many more people who are aware and looking for these horses. That is the first part of what we are asking you to do.
The second part is to click on each web page and read the details about each case. Download the flyer if there is one and share it in and around your work, where you shop, your barn, school, etc. Our flyers are our single BEST weapon in finding these horses. More horses are found using these flyers than any other way. We encourage their use.

After an emotionally taxing week, I decided to head to the barn this evening for a little spring cleaning and a heavy dose of some much needed horse therapy. I went through and cleaned all of my tack and came upon Willie’s old bridle.
Willie and I hung up our stirrups many moons ago because of his arthritis but cleaning his retired well-loved leather brought back a wave of memories. Seeing little gray hairs imbedded into the brow band made me well up with tears knowing that I may never have the opportunity to pat his ever changing coat again. I didn’t have it in me to scrub the bit that still had some remaining pieces of grass that he had snuck on one of our last rides together. What’s now a distant memory somehow feels just like yesterday. Lazy and leisurely hacks in the field without a care in the world.
I’m staying strong but this has taken an unfathomable emotional toll on me. I know Fallon is out of jail and potentially back in school. I wonder if she realized the pain she’d be putting me through the day she picked up Willie. I hugged her and said “thank you” before she drove off only to now know that Willie never made it to the forever home that was promised for him. My heart drops to my stomach and I’m instantly nauseated every time I replay that day in my head.
All I want to know is where my horse went and what happened to him. I’m praying for answers so can I can at least have some closure and so my heart can begin to heal.
We are now up to 33 victims. 49 horses, 1 mini mule, 1 donkey and 2 goats. The story is much bigger than Willie and we need all the help we can get. Please continue to pray and share as we spread awareness of these missing horses. By continuing to share our story, we hope that no other horse owner has to endure this heartache too.
