Review for Stolen Horse International Inc, Shelby, NC, USA
We got Opie he was about 10 months old. He was our sweet boy....he was stolen when he was about 3 - that was in 2003. He was returned home Aug 2012! Opie was registered both Pinto and American Saddlebred. That could have easily been checked. He was reported missing all over. There were so many ways for him to be "found" but the ONLY thing that worked was STOLEN HORSE INTERNATIONAL. If there was a "one stop shop" as I call it. ONE place that Police, victims and potential buyers could check, do you have any idea how many horses would be saved? If Debi’s STOLEN HORSE INTERNATIONAL was THE PLACE I do believe we would actually put some fear into the fearless thiefs and those who protect them. We all have to help each other. I had always thought horse people were "good" people. The sad truth is. They may "say" they are but are so far from it. Actions are what matter. A little help could have gone a long way in catching the people that did this. At least we have him home.
I am telling everyone, trying to get the word out. PLEASE, if you have had a horse stolen or "find" a horse, please do the right thing. Call police THEN check STOLEN HORSE INTERNATIONAL We contacted the police, made flyers went to shows and sale barns you name it - up and down the highway and surrounding areas. No one saw him and once you see him...you would know. The BEST thing I EVER did was contact Stolen Horse International. Debi Medcalf was our saving grace. She and her organization never gave up hope and never took his image and flyer down. They even had hired a private investigator to try to find me. She walked me through the whole process keeping me calm and on track (which if you know me is difficult at best) My emotions run high and they get the best of me at times. Most of all when injustices happen. She is not only MY HERO but the hero of many she has assisted.
