    Missing Recue horses from Remember Me Rescue Texas

    http://teamkeen.com/missingrmrhorses.html

    $1000 in Reward Money being offered
    URGENT HELP NEEDED!!

    Please help us find these 2 RMR horses. Both horses were adopted by Melissa Curtis of Bowie, Texas. A week or so ago Melissa called me and asked to adopt another horse. She told me they had just bought a house and she wanted something to ride in drill team. I asked a member of Remember Me to go see the new house and only to find out it was all lies and that the horses she had adopted months earlier were missing.

    Melissa said they were donated to a church camp but would not tell us where the horses were. We now know she took them at least one of them to the Bowie Horse Sale and we are taking this matter extremely seriously.

    If anyone has any information please conatus Donna Keen at 817-689-1214 or Vicki Morgan at 682-647-5145 immediately.

    Melissa betrayed these horses and we will chase her to the ends of the Earth to find them.





    Norway

    $500 Reward
    for the return of

    Norway
    no questions asked

    Tattoo # K23302
    Marks: Few white hairs in forehead.---
    Cowlick slightly to left at top of eye level.--- Cowlick at crest of neck on both sides;
    feathered cowlick on front of neck.***


    Last known whereabouts of Norway was at the Bowie Horse Auction in Bowie, Texas where he was ridden through the sale ring and was sold.
    Still looking for Trophy Case. He may have also sold there also but run through without being ridden.
    That unfortunately puts him at extremely high risk of being purchased by killer buyers.
    But the story of the church camp, as nice as it would have been, it false. Mrs. Curtis has changed her story and told me in a text that she donated the horses to a man named Danny. (Danny Reeves, I presume.)








    $500 Reward
    for the return of

    Trophy Case

    no questios asked

    Tattoo # L11396

    Dark Bay Gelding, may have sun bleached. Has skunk tail (white hairs at base of tail)
    Irregular oval star; snip slightly to left between nostrils, ending on upper lip.---
    Median cowlick at bottom of eye level.---
    Left hind: pastern and part of ankle white, higher on outside and in back.---
    Cowlick high at crest of neck on both sides; cowlick on front of neck.***



    Anyone with any information can contact Donna or Vicki and the information provided will be kept confidential. Any information leading to the return of one or both of these horses will be recognized with a $500 per horse reward.

    Please help us find them before it's too late.

    I hate that this has happened but it probably happens much more than the rescue realizes. Also that second horse does not look bay to me but buckskin yes with something going on causing the white hairs in the tail.

    Norway was such a love bug, and we hope that they find both. We do know that Norway went through a sale barn in Bowie Texas and was ridden through. he was bought and shipped to south texas. Trophy Case was at the same sale and not ridden through. His fate is unknown and it's been said that those that are not ridden through tend to just get bought by the kill buyers. Actually this is the one time it has happened when checked on. Just happened on Norway and he is a great horse. I didn't know much about Trophy Case. If anyone knows anyone that goes to sales in Texas, please pass along. I spent the morning finding auction houses and calling and emailing information to them to check just in case they ended back up at an auction.

    I wish this rescue was closer to me. Those are some beautiful horses!

    Trophy Case is likely to be dark bay or brown with a skunk tail. Buckskin is very uncommon in TBs and he is not from the two know dilute lines. He looks like he has some dapples and a lot of sun bleaching going on which is why he probably looks like a dark buckskin. He's a really handsome horse.

    I hope theses horses find their way back to the rescue or to good homes. Good luck! I wish I could help.

    simbion - this rescue loves these horses and want to help those horses that give us humans hours of enjoyment.
    The Keens are awesome people and Donna will fight to her last breath for a horse in need. We do have updates although, it might not be good for Trophy. Below was the latest on this. Please if you are at a Texas sale, know someone who recently got a bay gelding from Texas, please check the lip for their tattos. Just give us all some peace of mind that these boys are safe somewhere, but not on a slaughter truck.


    Norway and Trophy Case's last known whereabouts was more than likely in the possession of Danny Reeves. A member of our group spoke with Mr Reeves and he confirmed to them that he had both horses and got them from Melissa Curtis.

    Per the conversation with Mr. Reeves, he remembers selling Norway either to an individual or through the sale ring, but Trophy Case was very lame after they rode him and to the best of his knowledge was loaded on a slaughter truck.

    Our hearts are breaking at this news. Fortunately we have made contact with a man at the border who inspects the horses before they go in to Mexico. I spoke to him on Tuesday and told me that he will personally search through the horses for him.

    We pray that it is not to late for this sweet horse.

    Wait, RMR let the horses board a trailer without their FIRST checking the woman out?

    Oh please. That's the Rescue's fault. They should offer $1,000 a horse to pay for their own mistake. Were they out of feed and just wanted a couple horses off the feed bill? Was THAT why they let this woman remove two horses from the property without checking her out first?

    no, they checked her out and they would never let horses leave just because of the feed bill. Not going to get into a debate, just putting the word out the best we can. Don't jump on the rescue because someone did not uphold their end of the agreement that they signed. I find your post offensive and you have no right to be critical of someone you know nothing about. Just saying.

    You have nothing to be offended about. Had the new owner been checked out THOROUGHLY, the horses would still be at her place. People don't just suddenly change their spots, neither do leopards. If the woman took the horses to auction, then she was someone who thought it was okey dokey to take a horse to auction. Horse communities are small, small places. Just about everyone knows everyone. Had she been a good adoptive home, she wouldn't be selling at auction or flipping horses. She flipped these as soon as she found out that the one went lame with work. Why did the Rescue adopt out a horse to someone who stated they were going to work the horse without KNOWING that the horse was totally sound? Nobody flips a horse who just had an injury yesterday, but they will flip one, or send it to auction if the horse is cronically lame. I know enough just by the fact that this was posted, to know that the Rescue did not thoroughly check out the adopter. It's clear in what you wrote. I do have a right to my opinion, as you do and can and will post that opinion as the board rules here state that my posting of that opinion is permissible. Just sayin'.

    I didn't infer that from this portion of the post,
    A week or so ago Melissa called me and asked to adopt another horse. She told me they had just bought a house and she wanted something to ride in drill team. I asked a member of Remember Me to go see the new house and only to find out it was all lies and that the horses she had adopted months earlier were missing.
    .

    To me, that looks as though she had been checked out & passed the sniff test in the past, she approached the rescue recently, indicated that she had bought a house, someone went to take a look and that is how they found out she had sold the horses & lied. I don't know any of the parties, so I don't have any knowledge about Melissa's history.

    You typed it right up there^^^. From the first sentence of the OP: "
    Both horses were adopted by Melissa Curtis of Bowie, Texas. A week or so ago..."


    Since when is a THOROUGH CHECK of someone COMPLETED in only a week? You ask for written references from vets, feed stores, farriers, etc. You check that they DO actually own or lease their land and how long the lease is for. THAT is how you do a THOROUGH check of someone. You don't go check to see they have a corral on the property and then release horses to them. Anyone who knew this woman would have known that she was FREE to leave that property at any time, ORRRR, was behind on her payments and HAD to leave. Nobody up and moves in the blink of an eye if they own property or are in a long tern lease. A simple two minute records check of the property in the County Appraiser's Web site would have shown who owned the land. Then a call to the owner about The Adopter's status on that property would have revealed whether the horses had a long-term home there or not.
