Last Sighting: On the morning of 7/3, my friend’s horse Dexter disappeared. The two of them were on a road trip, and Dexter was highlined while they camped overnight near Iron Point Mining District in Nevada. Alec (the human) checked on him at 4:30 am and all was well. At 6 am there was nothing but an empty lead rope. There were no signs of a struggle, and no damage to the equipment. Alec, the BLM, and the local sheriff’s department searched for Dexter for the next 7 hours, covered 60 miles of desert, and found nothing but tracks that led to the main road and stopped. The most plausible theory is that Dexter was taken.
He’s a red dun gelding, with a darker red line down his back and darker red ear tips. He has a snip and strip far to the left side of his nose. He has a small white patch on his right hind ankle. He has some lumps under his belly and high inside his thighs. He has a large patch of hair rubbed off of the dock of his tail. He wears shoes with pads on his front feet only, barefoot on the rear.
