A Quarter Horse stolen from his paddock in McDonough, Georgia, has been recovered, but his pasturemate is still missing, the animals’ owner said.

Owner Rachel Moore said Buddy, a 14-year-old Quarter Horse, and Henry, a 23-year-old retired Thoroughbred racehorse, were in their pasture when she checked on them in the early morning hours of Sept. 21. But by the time she called them in for their morning feed, both horses were gone.
