LaMarque (Galveston County), TX Monday, May 29, 2017
Reynolds was last seen on May 28, 2017 according to Jerry Finch, President of Habitat for Horses. Mr. Finch advised when the ranch staff went out to feed the horses the morning of May 29, 2017, they determined that someone had cut the fence and Reynolds was missing.
Mr. Finch asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating their horse. Mr. Finch has notified the LaMarque Police Department of the missing presumed 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.
“All the horses come here from law enforcement. They are abused, neglected or seized horses. Reynolds was given to Habitat for Horses 2 years ago as a result of a seizure.”, says Jerry Finch, President of Habitat for Horses. “Reynolds had never been owned by someone that cared for him until he came to us. Everyone at the rescue is heartbroken over this.” Mr. Finch went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that this is the first time in 20 years of running Habitat for Horses that someone has stolen a horse from them. He has contacted LaMarque Police Department regarding his disappearance.
