LOST/MISSING EQUINE, – BISCUIT – MICHIGAN
Coleman (Midland County), MI, Tuesday July 25, 2017
Biscuit broke out of his stall around 10pm on July 24, 2017 according to his owner Sandra Ward. Biscuit was already lame in his front prior to his escape and may have been injured further in his escape.
Ms. Ward asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating her horse. Ms. Ward has notified the Midland County Police Department, Midland County Sheriff Department and Midland County of Biscuit’s disappearance.
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.
“Our farm was meant to be his retirement home. To be spoiled and well cared for until his last days.”, says Sandra Ward, “I heard his hooves making clip clops on the paved road for about 15 seconds and then nothing... I’ll never forget hearing the last clip of each step. It’s a haunting sound.” Ms. Ward went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that Biscuit has had a hard road in life, he barely survived the 16-mile trailer ride to their home just shy of a year ago. They have contacted Midland County Police Department, Midland County Sheriff Department and Midland County.
On July 25, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Ward 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 Biscuit’s webpage with information and a printable flyer in his NetPosse.com listing, which is where any updates or leads will be posted. Anyone interested in helping can search for report number NR005288 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5288
“Circulating the flyer for Biscuit as well as the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as he 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 Biscuit’s flyer in public places as well.”
Pictures, flyer, contact information, updates and other information are on the NetPosse webpage to identify this case quickly when calling in a tip.
