Monroe (Union County), NC, 28112, USA

My daughter was training Eli to be an Eventing horse, but due to hoof problems, she had to stop training him. We were introduced to a man who was looking for a trail horse for a girlfriend. After riding Eli twice, he decided that he was going to take Eli for himself as a trail horse. I explained to him that Eli had hoof problems and that he needed to remain barefoot. I told him that I was willing to let him have Eli on the condition that Eli would remain barefoot and he would maintain the therapy of our farrier. Also, we were to have right of first refusal if the man could no longer care for Eli. He agreed to these conditions and we allowed him to take Eli to his farm nearby in Waxhaw, NC. The day Eli left with the man, I stupidly signed a Bill of Sale to release Eli to him. When we discovered that this man was a broker/trader, I contacted him and he told me that Eli was sold to a girl that was home schooled in the Asheboro, NC area, but would not give me any other details. We were alsoinformed that Eli was sold to a missionary group in the Asheboro, NC area and that they had no contact information by another source. 

We need to find Eli and make sure he is okay. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. We made a mistake but Eli should not pay for it and we just want to make sure he is safe.
