First I want to tell you that when it comes to rescuing animals, I am always first in line.  I currently have a cat that was rescued from the Humane Society on “kill day” and a dog that was rescued from a neglect situation.  The dog came to me with mange and pneumonia; which cost me a small fortune to fix.  And if you’ve been reading my blog up until now, you know I have rescued a mustang.When it comes to horse racing, I do not have problems with the idea of the sport itself.  Horses love to run and are supremely competitive.  I think my own mare was a race horse in another life, as she revels at the idea of leaving another horse in the dust.  That said, the horse racing industry has two very big problems; starting and running horses too young, resulting in permanent debilitating injuries and casting away horses that are no longer needed.

Finding a Lost Horse

Has your horse gone missing?  While I recommend using all of the conventional search methods, it is possible that your horse could be found by someone that won’t have access to your local newspaper or notice the sign posted in your feedstore.  Your horse could end up being quickly sold and be shipped across the country or even the world.

That is where www.netpossee.com comes in.  They post lost as well as found adds and are totally devoted to their cause.  If you sign up for their mailing list, you will recieve missing horse notifications, which may enable you to be a part of the solution.  In addition, you can register your horse’s information with them, including microchip ID number and markings.  That way, should your horse go missing, you will have all of the necessary information to begin the search.
