Can you help us get our story out so we can find her and buy her back? He wont tell us where or who bought her. So my mom is placing ads in the local paper and posters in businesses. They are going through a divorce. I hav e totally taken care of her since I was 4yrs old and I have never complained. I am 10 yrs old now. None of us are sleeping much because we are so sad.

We are using facebook too if you want to look at it my name is BEN CROSBY and my mom is
LISA HINSON MCLAWS from Pima, AZ. ask to be our friend and you can see how alot of people are trying to help us. Ben Crosby and Mom

We exchanged posts, the boy and I.  He knows where the horse is. The man that has the horse, a friend of the step-father, refuses to give up the horse, claiming he's just holding it for the step father. Messy divorce things. Obviously a threat to the boy's mother in the pending divorce action.    How sad a boy and his horse would be used like this.   I suggested he contact a lawyer and then possibly the police.   And let the one holding the horse know he's taking this action.  Very narrow path to walk for a young boy.

I have no further news as yet, but left two messages for Ben and his mother today on FaceBook. Hopefully I'll hear back soon.

I guess, Pony Gal, that we become accustomed to people doing mean things to each other but for myself I'll never understand doing mean things to a child.  Hopefully this boy will not be traumatized so badly as to leave long lasting harm. 


That the step father won't tell who he sold to and where the horse is makes me very concerned. If he's mean enough to sell the child's horse he's mean enough to sell him to auction and thus more likely than not to slaughter.  I'm hoping this isn't the case in this instance.


Sooner or later the mother will think to check with the nearest auction yards in the area.

Aww, poor young man. That is an awful thing to do to a child.
