    Horse lost in Freetown State Forest - Please Help
    I'm just passing on the message....see here http://www.nemba.org/forums/showthre...d=1#post162058

    "NEMBA members, we are asking for your assistance during any rides you have planned or may be planning in the Freetown State Forest. Your bikes provide silent means of moving through the forest. A local resident fell off while riding her horse, 15.3 hand Arabian brown gelding (boy), wearing western saddle and bridle, two weeks ago down at the Quantapoag end of Freetown. We are desperately trying to locate this horse. He had a history of abuse for a number of years before he was rescued and reabilitated but we believe he has reverted back to a solitary survival mode. We have had a sighting a little over a week ago and fresh signs of a horse "eating the wrong things". State mounted police were out Sunday and other groups have been out there searching every day but we do not have any recent sightings. Feeding stations with hay and water have been set up to try to encourage him to come in to locations but we desperately need everyone to help. If you see anything unusual, a glimpse of him, a discarded saddle, hear a whinny, please contact the police, fire dept or Deb LaPlante immediately. If you observe the crows, vultures feeding or an odor signaling the worse, please let us know as well. Stop and call fire or police so your GPS location can be registered. We have trackers and horse handlers that will get to the location as soon as possible. He may not be approachable and may need medical attention as soon as possible. ...He is much beloved. Thank you! Fire and police (508-763-4017) Mr and Mrs LaPlante 774-888-8376"

    Not really. Look at the Nemba thread for the updates.
