Incident Details

Incident Date:
7/11/2016 
Location:
Cedar Hill (Jefferson County), MO, 63016, USA

I received a call with a picture from my neighbor asking if this was my horse out. Picture was taken at 7am Monday morning. I came home and checked the pasture, gates, etc... no gates were left open. No tracks from a truck/trailer or hoof tracks leaving the property. He is not shod. We have notified Jefferson County Police Department and Animal Control. Cooper has helped Mark overcome a severe accident from 9/26/2014 when Mark was run over and almost died. Cooper is his therapy horse not only for building strength in his legs but also to help Mark have the will to live. Mark has special stirrups for him to ride. We have searched everywhere and no sign. Friends and neighbors have been helping. Mark was up for over 35 hours straight searching for Cooper. Cooper is everything to Mark. Cooper is very loyal to Mark and he understands Mark's difficulties. We are asking for the community to help us find our horse. We plea to the public to help get our family back together and help us find this horse.
