Craigslist ad leads to Texas woman's reunion with stolen horse

By Nadine Bells | Good News – Thu, Aug 16, 2012 12:34 AM SGT - Ten years ago, Michelle Pool's horse, a Pinto Saddlebred named Opie, was stolen from her father's pasture in San Antonio, Texas.

This summer, she reunited with Opie — thanks to a Craigslist ad, a tipster and Stolen Horse International.

A neighbour told her he saw a horse trailer at Pool's father's place that night. He thought it was hers, MSNBC reports.

She posted a Opie's photo and stats on, the website for Stolen Horse International, checking the site frequently for leads on stolen or recovered horses.

Years went by. Pool divorced and left Texas for Arkansas. Still, she never gave up the hope that she would see her horse again.
A few weeks ago, Debi Metcalfe, the woman behind Stolen Horse International, called Pool.

"We found your horse," she said, adding, "I'm 150 per cent sure."
