This is a missing Thoroughbred mare named Regalian. She is registered with the Jockey Club. Her tattoo number is C17345. Her former owner is desperately seeking any information about her. On February 11th, 2012, she was placed at a farm that claimed to be a foster farm for a reputable equine rescue. She retired from being a broodmare. It was understood that she would only leave with a signed adoption contract and be placed in a safe, new home. Unfortunately, all the information available now points in the opposite direction. Regalian and two other horses were offered for FREE on Craig’s List with no mention of any adoption contract.
From her posting on Net Posse a.k.a Stolen Horse International:
“Regalian – Chestnut TB Mare (tattoed) – was sent to an individual in Milton, Florida, with the understanding that mare would be in a satellite foster program under a rescue in Georgia. The owner had to reduce the herd due to health reasons, and this was one of the last horses that needed to be placed. It was understood that she would be adopted out with a contract under the GA Rescue, and so there was no reason to be concerned that the mare would be sold or sent to an unsuitable home. Stacy later learned the mare had not been re-homed where she had been told (to a lady in Bonifay, FL – now is told the person is possibly a horse trader) and that the GA Rescue had no knowledge of the horse being in its foster care. A witness has stated the individual in Florida offered her the mare at a price and without a contract, which clearly indicated the mare was being sold for personal profit and not being adopted as agreed. The individual in Milton has a documented history of questionable activity, and NetPosse has another pending report with this person in a similar situation.”
This mare was sent to a place where she was supposed to be available for adoption. She was at this farm in March 25th, 2012. By the time this photo was taken, she had dropped 75 pounds. It is alleged that the person who had Regalian offered to sell her to another individual for a set price. It is also alleged that this mare and other horses were later offered for free on Craig’s List. No adoption contract was mentioned in either case. This mare may have gone through an auction in Alabama. She may be in either Alabama or the Florida panhandle. Her whereabouts at this time are unknown. Regalian has a home waiting for her if she can be found. If she is in a safe home at this time, her former owner would be very relieved to have proof of her safety. If she was sent to slaughter, please let her former owner know that so she can grieve and then put this nightmare behind her.
“A reward is being offered for return of the mare and possible finder’s fee. If evidence is provided that the mare is in a suitable home, Stacy would consider leaving the mare where she is with an adoption contract as were her original intentions. Individual in Milton claims no financial gain was made from this mare’s transaction.” – Net Posse
Mary Johnson is offering $1,500 and Maggie Moss has added another $1,000 to the reward. That means a combined reward of $2,500 is being offered for the safe return of Regalian.
It would be very worthwhile for anyone with information to contact Stacy immediately.
