Two Horses Stolen in Riverside

On 2/16/10 two horses were taken from the Arlington Heights area of Riverside. Both horses are older mares. One horse is a gray horse (Rose) and the other horse is a dark bay quarter/thoroughbred mare (Duchess).

Duchess is owned by Linda Moeller and she is beyond devastated that her companion of many years has been taken. Duchess is 29 years old, 15.3 hands, dark brown almost black bay with a wide white stripe of her face with a recent scar across her forehead over her eyes. She has 3 white socks, left front club foot with shoes on the front feet only. She often hangs her tongue out. Linda is offering a REWARD for the return of her horse! Please contact Linda at 949-633-9711 or lmoeller38910@roadrunner.com.

Please spread the news in your horse community about these missing horses. Owners of both Rose & Duchess are offering a reward for their return!

Thank you!
