10/1/2011 7:42:08 P.M - Thanks so much I got the updates and truly appreciate it. I have heard nothing, there is such a big hole in my heart! My granddaughter said last week that she heard Cowboy and made me swear I would go check it out. I did but she must have been dreaming or heard the horses that are down below where they are staying. It sure would be nice to know one way or the other and have some closure. All the people who lost horses around me have found their horses bodies, but as yet no one has reported seeing Cowboy or a horse that looks like him. I keep looking!! Paula

9/3/2011 4:26:41 P.M - "Cowboy was a horse I had brought for myself as a two year old. I thought that he would grow to be much bigger then he did and I am very tall, I did rode him for a year. He is such a nice horse not a mean bone in his body so I decided to make him into a child's horse and give him to my granddaughter, Joeleen who was doing great riding her pony. We do a lot of camping/tail riding with our horses and I knew my granddaughter would soon be looking for a horse. I had a week before just taken Cowboy to my daughters house so Joeleen could start to get used to him and ride him in the round pen. When hurricane Irene hit there were three horses and a pony there. My daughter Charylie lived near the Catskill Creek. Sunday morning she and her husband left to pick up Joeleen at a birthday party, while they were gone the house exploded and the flood waters came and washed the house away. There is nothing left and what was once their yard now is the creek. We tried so hard to get to our horses!! We were able to see three of them on a old fallen down stone wall. They were surrounded by rushing water to their chest. The police and fire department wouldn't let us try to get them, so we waited until dark when the waters were receding and at 11:00 PM we waded out and were able to get to two of the horses. They ran right over to my daughter, exhausted. We couldn't see the other two. On Monday we went back to where we saw the horses and all we found were some tracts and fresh manure. Later that morning we found the pony washed up about a 1/2 mile down the creek. My granddaughter, who is six is so upset about her pony, but is waiting to get her horse Cowboy back." - Paula
