Missing pony needs your help

By Kristen Hampton - bio l email

SHELBY, NC (WBTV) - This is one of those stories that isn't exactly good news... yet.

Sammie the 37-year-old Welsh pony went missing almost a week ago now but his owner Marianne Miller is still holding out hope he's working his way home.

"I just hope someone has him," Marianne said.

Sammie wasn't penned up at the Miller farm because a 37-year-old pony doesn't really roam around a lot and he had never run off before. Marianne thinks Skipper the family dog might have accidentally chased him off while the two were playing.

Skipper hasn't really been himself since Sammie went missing. The two were best buddies.

Marianne has posted fliers all over town and even handed out some to neighbors homes in hopes someone knows something. The animal rights group PETA has posted a $1,000 reward for any information leading to Sammie's safe return.
