The strange tale of the disappearance of Jamaal the horse
LINDA Millottis is determined not to leave any stone unturned in the search for her beloved horse Jamaal.
The resident of Daisy Hill at Brisbane has made 100 posters, placed ads on gumtree and Facebook, and contacted vets all over the Northern rivers in search of her 15-year-old gelding.
When new neighbours with motorbikes moved in next door to her home near the Brisbane suburb of Beenleigh, Mrs Millott said Jamaal got spooked, so she took him to a friend's property to be with other horses.
Mrs Millott said on August 26, the owner of the property gave Jamaal away to a horse rescue team, and he hasn't been seen since.
"She said she gave him to a rescue group and when I asked her who, she wouldn't tell me," she said.
"I got in touch with East Coast Horse Rescue and they said they had definitely not picked him up."
"The police said they can't do anything without evidence."
Jamaal is bay in colour, has a white star on his forehead, a white front right foot and scars on his right front knee and right back leg.
The horse is branded with the letters TWS on its right shoulder, and 47 on its left shoulder.
"If any vet goes over him he is micro chipped and will be linked back to me."
"He's part of my family, he's like my child."
