Owner thinks horses could be in Abbeville, Anderson, or Laurens County, SC, as rescuer had foster homes in several areas. These horses also could have been moved to Florida. how missing: Owner moved from SC to FL and placed 5 horses in temporary care of rescue while looking for place to board them in FL. Rescue was compensated for care. Owner asked rescue to find good adoptive home for Champ. Owner tried to make arrangements to have horses shipped back since rescue also did transport. Owner was asked by rescuer to allow 2 older ones (Chloe and Heston) to be adopted out to someone rescuer said was good with older horses. Since that time, owner has learned that adopter did not take Chloe and may have only been a holding facility for rescuer. Owner paid for new Coggins in March but has no proof Coggins were ever done. Owner paid half of the cost of shipping up front but horses never arrived. After going back and forth with excuses from rescuer, owner finally hired another shipper in May. He arrived to find rescuer not at home and horses on property in deplorable condition with no water or food. He took pictures and called authorities who then removed some of the animals the following day and charges were filed. Shipper was able to save 2 of the owner's horses and take them to safety. At the time shipper arrived on Monday, May 12th, Chloe WAS ON THE PROPERTY and Heston may have been, too. If shipper would have known this, he would have taken them also. However, by Tuesday May 13th, Chloe had disappeared. Two of owners saved horses were sent to another rescuer and are now back home in Florida. Chloe and Heston have disappeared and rescuer will not reveal their location. Champ is said to be placed in a good home, but owner does not know this for sure. If he is in a good home, owner will leave him there, but otherwise, she wants him returned with the others.
