CM, the info is on its way to the person who checks in ALL livestock at OLEX (southern ON auction, where meat buyers frequent for the Québec plants). She is amazing and knows her horses, and will be able to spot him a mile off if he shows up here.
Also - maybe people on show circuits could share the pics with show secretaries, judges, ring stewards? Might be overdoing it but thought I'd put that out there.
Jingling for you!
Is it Barbie?
Although if he was in Va, I doubt he would make it to an auction in Ontario. NH? then to the s/h in Qc... in a sealed truck, so no auction stop.
I have sent a message to the Cdn Horse Coalition to try and get an email or phone no. Also, you can contact the media in Canada, ie Mary Ormsby (firstname.lastname@example.org) as she may have contacts too after the research and articles the did on Backstreet Bully.
I was going to suggest contacting luvmytbs re the DOT number but I see she has already seen this.
Yes, Barbie I figure that because so many horses go through there, that it would be a good idea to make that another point of contact. If others have contacts at NH that would be a logical next step.
Despicable people! Hope she's arrested! Have faith and good luck! Praying for a good outcome and that horse will be returned to you asap. My daughter had cancer, surgeries, chemo, radiation that finished just last year. She also has 2 young children. My heart goes out to you!
I made up a quick flyer and gave it to the wonderful folks at Kingsport Livestock Auction at lunchtime today. They'll make sure everyone who comes through sees it. They tell me there's no other auctions for horses until you get to Knoxville, so that's good news. There was a big horse sale there yesterday, though.

I strongly urge you to file a NetPosse report ASAP! You will have THOUSANDS of people looking for him and sharing the flyer. You can go back and edit the report if it changes from civil to criminal but please, get the info out there!
The OP posted above that she is waiting to finish her NetPosse paperwork until she gets the police report so she can file with them as criminal and not civil.

Oh my god, it never ceases to amaze me the depths some people will sink.
I am praying for someone to be able to find him, And the people that took him to rot in jail. My lord you poor thing, and with all you are going through.
How do you know she was planning on selling him to slaughter?
I do not know the relationship you had with this woman so I cannot understand.
Is there no one that knows her and where she might be?
No one that knows where this buyer trucker holes up?
Lord I wish I could help. Sending huge jingles and hugs to you and the return of your boy. It is just sickening. I cannot imagine how helpless you must feel.
I will share on my FB and ask a friend who attends the auctions in Troutville to keep an eye out for him. He is an "englishy" horse that will stand out at a lot of the auctions around here.
I would also contact C&H, they run the Hollins stockyard auction and the Mt. Airy, NC auction. Here is their FB page https://www.facebook.com/pages/C-H-S...41481429269183 Chances are if they want to run him through a sale, it will go to on of these two and even though they run a horse sale, they seem like decent people on the few occasions I have met them
