MISSING EQUINE, – Whiskeys Hallelujah Fever aka “Halle” – South Carolina
Lugoff (Kershaw County), SC Tuesday, November 1, 2016
On Monday October 31, 2016 Halle was discovered missing from her temporary home. Halle is a 14 year old Spotted Saddle Horse Mare.
Christine Lauay asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating Halle. Ms. Lauay reported that the pasture fence was pushed down and there was evidence that the horse was loaded on a waiting trailer. Ms. Lauay has notified the Kershaw County Sheriff Department of the stolen horse.
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.
“Halle has been a beloved part of our family for 9 years.”, says Christine Lauay. “We had evacuated Halle to a farm in Lugoff, SC when hurricane Matthew was headed for Charleston, and she was staying at her temporary home while we finished repairing the damage from the storm so that we could bring her home.” Ms. Lauay went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that Halle is affectionate, smart and funny. They are devastated over her disapperance. Ms. Lauay reports that a tracking dog was used to track Halle’s scent from the area where the fence was pushed down and to the driveway where the scent disappeared. There are tire tracks present where a trailer was apparently waiting to load Halle.
On October 31, 2016, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Case 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.

“Circulating Halle’s flyer and the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as she 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 Halle’s flyer in public places as well.”
