CLEVELAND, TX, August 3, 2012 (Stolen Horse International)  – Horse theft is a crime that is alive and thriving in the U.S. today with thousands of horses missing each year. With the help of volunteers through Stolen Horse International, aka NetPosse.com, many horses are recovered and there is hope for victims like Michelle Pool, even almost 10 years after her horse was stolen.

Pool filed a report in March of 2003 for Opie, her spotted American Saddlebred horse stolen from her father’s pasture on Highway 181 in San Antonio, Texas. Shortly after she reported her stolen horse to Shelby, NC’s Stolen Horse International, his webpage, http://netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=1687, was put on the website at www.netposse.com, and NetPosse Alerts were sent to thousands who sent them to thousands. But Opie was not anywhere in sight. As the years passed, Pool never quit thinking of Opie and wondering what happened to him.

After almost ten years, she does not have to wonder anymore! On Monday, July 30, 2012, a Deanna Bordelon called Stolen Horse International around noon to report an ad she’d seen on Craigslist. With an interest in possibly buying the horse Bordelon had searched the NetPosse.com website first to see if he was one of the horses listed. She was shocked to see him there but excited that she may help reunite him with his owner.
