Excerpts from article on Today.com (The Today Show's website) August 14, 2012 - Nearly 10 years ago, Michelle Pool, 40, of Eureka Springs, Ark., stood staring at a clipped and gaping fence. Her beloved horse, Opie, had been stolen from her father’s pasture in San Antonio, Texas.
Nearly 10 years ago, Michelle Pool, 40, of Eureka Springs, Ark., stood staring at a clipped and gaping fence. Her beloved horse, Opie, had been stolen from her father’s pasture in San Antonio, Texas.
“I kept looking, kept looking,” Pool recalled. “I had posted him on Stolen Horse International the same week he went missing.
Time went by, and no leads emerged.
Then, a few weeks ago, she got a call from Debi Metcalfe, the woman behind the organization Stolen Horse International, the site where Pool had originally reported Opie missing a decade earlier.
Deanna Bordelon, who was looking for a horse for her 13-year-old daughter, had gone to see Opie. He had been renamed War Bonnet.
She went home and Googled Opie’s story, expecting to find a news story about a wandering horse. Instead, NetPosse.com came up, which is the website of Stolen Horse International. “I clicked on it and there was a list of stolen horses, and all of I sudden I see a thumbnail of Opie and look at the photo I’d taken of him on my cell phone.” It was an exact match.
