The scrawny brown pony meandered in front of Cathy Brissie as she drove to work early one morning.
Slowing her pickup on the country road north of Shelby, she saw an animal definitely down on its luck.
Not until she’d dialed 911 and made a few more calls did Brissie learn she’d just found Sammie, a 37-year-old toothless pony that had been missing for nine days and was feared dead.
Searchers had been combing the woods and fields looking for a family pet known throughout the community. Animal lovers had traveled on foot and horseback, in vehicles and canoes, calling out the pony’s name, hoping it could survive the heat.
