TheHorse.com Article: Stolen Horses International Helps Bring Horses Home -- Hurricane Irene stormed up the Atlantic coast in late August, leaving destruction in her path. In the chaos that ensued during and after the storm, 22 horses from Schoharie County, N.Y., went missing. The animals' owner, Leland Neff, believed the horses had been swept away during the storm, but turned to an organization some horse owners might not be familiar with in an attempt to find his horses. Read full story at link above.

Notice of found horses by Eva Evans on Leland Neff Flood Horses October 13, 2011
"Scarlet's body was found first, her identification was not easy. Leland and search team found Commander, Veldon and Valentino. On Wednesday during the search Leland and friends found the bodies of the "babies" - he called them. Octavius' and Torpedo's little bodies were laying five feet from each other, about a 1000 feet downstream from the field, they were born10/10/11 - Took out Michele Schmoll's email address and replaced it with Lelands. Took out Michele's phone number."
