It might also be worth emailing York Trading Standards with pics and details of microchip.freezemark if he has them. The lady that covers York sales is very helpful and has her own horses, they are always at the sale checking horses as they come in so may be worth a try. Good luck.

Just a thought, do you have any of the fly grazers in your area. Or the dealers who buy large numbers in to sell.

It occurred to me that if a Piebald cob had been found on our moors I doubt anyone would have reported it. They would just have stuck it in the local dealers fields. Because he bought in 00's of them people would just have assumed it was his. It would have been one of the first places I would have looked.

I also doubt whether he would have noticed. Certainly not until his annual round up for the sale. Even then he would probably have thought he had just lost its passport. I have helped him match them once and there were always a few mismatches at the end.

Good luck finding your boy.

Theres only sheep and cows on the mountains.The land belongs to the farmers up the road. There are loads of people who know Flash and that he belongs to me. I havent seen any fly grazers around here. Thing is there was no way he could of got out of those fields as the gates are always kept closed,and my little section A didnt follow him,which I find strange.
Hes advertised in the paper also as well as other sites.
