Update On Stolen Foal

A two-month-old filly stolen Monday evening from Cornerstone Stable, located off of Newtown Pike near Lexington, has not yet been found, but more information has been made available. Mike Owens, who operates Cornerstone, said a possible sighting was reported to Lexington police on Tuesday morning. A truck driver reported seeing a pickup truck on Georgetown Road with a foal in the back and two people holding her. They appeared to be Hispanic. “We feel it's related because we believe there was a pickup truck parked down near the farm the night this happened,” Owens said.

A combination of witnesses, most of whom live on Newtown Pike near the farm, have reported that the truck was dark gray in color. The culprits are believed to have attempted first to take a foal from a field at John Steiner's neighboring Meadow Lane Farm. That field is about 800 feet from Owens' barn.

The filly is estimated to weigh about 300 pounds (born on Feb. 9) with a large star and connecting stripe on her face. She also has two socks on her hind feet and a small amount of white on her front legs. She was wearing a leather halter when she was taken. A reward for the filly's return has been offered. Anyone with more information can call Owens at 606/255-7966 or the Lexington police.
