The search is on in the Coleman area for a horse that broke out of a stall Monday night.
Owner Sandra Ward said she hopes the weekend will bring extra people to help in the search, which thus far has included people in the woods and driving on roadways, as well as drones flying overhead. The drones can’t see through the canopy of the mostly wooded area however, leading to more feet needed on the ground.
“I need riders,” this weekend, she said. “I need people on the ground.”
The objective is to find Biscuit, a 17-year-old sorrel colored Tennessee Walking Horse. He was last seen at the intersection of McGruder and McNally roads, headed west. The area is mostly state land, Ward noted, adding she has permission of area homeowners to cross their property for the search.
She said she has offered her property, which includes plenty of parking for trailers, as well as hay and water for horses, to fellow riders who can assist in the search.
“Fingers crossed that nothing’s happened to my boy,” Ward said.
Biscuit came to Ward’s home a year ago to be spoiled and well cared for, she said in a media release from Stolen Horse International at NetPosse.com
“Our farm was meant to be his retirement home,” she said. Biscuit has had a hard road in life, and barely survived the 16-mile trailer ride to their home just shy of a year ago, she said. She has contacted Midland County Sheriff’s Office, and Midland County 911 has asked residents to be on the lookout with a post at its Facebook page.
Ward can be reached at 989-600-5067.
