Equine/Pet Identification (Particularly In Disaster Situations)


I don’t know about you, but just the word ‘disaster’ makes me want to grab my loved ones and run hide. Most people ‘think’ of disaster in terms of hurricanes, earthquakes, wild fires, tsunamis, mud slides, and so forth. These  are disasters-no question. But there are little disasters as well-but they are still disasters.

For example-you open the front door to get a package from the UPS/FEDEX delivery. From out of nowhere, your precious little puppy goes flying right past both of you-and is just GONE.  You hunt for hours, put up signs around the block, go to the shelters, notify animal control-but nothing. Then a couple of weeks later, you spot a puppy about the right age being walked a few blocks over. Looks the same, but you can’t be sure. How would you know if that was your puppy or not? Puppies love everybody-so reactions aren’t a good clue. Both dogs are solid black. Same gender. This is a real head scratcher.

The answer is a tiny little thing about the size of a grain of rice. It’s called a microchip. microchipEach one is encoded with a unique number-no two has the same number. Ordinally, the thing just sits inside the animal and does absolutely nothing. But when a scanner comes close enough, it responds with a signal giving up that number. The scanner’s screen lights up with the number. If the microchip was properly registerd, the number can be traced to the owner of the animal-YOU.

Now-a good fur parent will ask about problems with these things because of things you read on the internet.

  • No-they do not cause cancer, knots, tumors, or other growths. The material the things are made from encourages the tissues of the body to grow into it-which holds the chip in place. That’s it. Once that happens-it sits.
  • You can place them yourself if you are knowledgeable enough. Otherwise, it is best to have a professional to do the job. There have been instances where the chips have been injected into spots they should never have been.
  • There are specific locations recommended for each species of animal. Getting creative is not recommended-people doing scanning might or might not scan in the area you put the chip. Stay with the recommendations.
  • Stay AWAY from cheap chips. This is another one of those things that you get what you pay for. Cheap chips may have bad signals that fade away entirely, flucuate between lot numbers, give lot numbers that have yet to be made yet, or other problems. They might read fine at first, but a couple of years from now, die and you won’t know it. (Writer is raising hand and waving-This happened to me. I had to have all of my horses re-chipped.)

Search Continues for Prized Show Horse



By Jacob McGuire, Transcript Staff Writer
August 12, 2017

The owners of a missing prized show horse have requested the help of an organization that specializes in recovering stolen and missing horses.

On Aug. 1, a 15-year-old American saddlebred chestnut gelding named Dreamer escaped from his stall at Feather Creek Farm in east Norman.

“We’re pretty sure he’s still alive,” farm owner Dynah Korhummel said. “He’s a very friendly horse, so no one should worry about getting close to him. If someone does find him, throw a rope over his neck or a halter and try to get him in a small pasture or a place we can get to him.”

Dreamer’s owner Debi Gann said Korhummel went out to feed Dreamer and the other horses around 6 p.m. Korhummel saw that Dreamer’s stall door was open, and he was nowhere to be found.

[We] are very worried about Dreamer and want to bring him back home to Allison,” Gann said.

Gann reached out to the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, Lake Thunderbird park rangers, animal welfare, the Norman Fire Department and Stolen Horse International, a nonprofit organization based in North Carolina.

Stolen Horse International began distributing information via its NetPosse Alert — which is similar to an Amber Alert — to hundreds of social media groups and private email contacts in an effort to rally the public to help the family.

“Circulating the flyer for Dreamer as well as the NetPosse.com alert nationwide is imperative, as they could be anywhere by now,” Stolen Horse International founder Debi Metcalfe said. “These flyers are one tool that brings home many horses and must be posted in as many public places as possible. And, remember, not everyone has internet access. Please post Dreamer’s flyer in public places as well.”

Anyone with information in regards to Dreamer’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office or Stolen Horse International.

Although Korhummel said Thursday, a reward would be given to whomever found the horse. Who would be funding the reward still has not been decided. However, Stolen Horse International spokesperson Pam Miller said Gann is not offering a reward at this time.  Related to NR 005300


August 24, 2017 Stolen Horse International received word that Dreamer had been located. Unfortunately, the report wasn’t what we’d hoped. His body was at the bottom of an embankment out of easy sight. Thoughts and prayers go to the owners and barn where this wonderful horse lived. We all know they will leave us at some point, but that doesn’t ease the pain when they do. Green grass, shady trees, and cool breezes, Dreamer. You’ll be missed.
