Twenty-year-old Bree Irvine’s Christmas mood was dampened on waking up to find that her horse ‘Magic’ had been stolen. Having been kept in a paddock at the La Perouse Pony Club in Chifly, this discovery almost shattered the young woman. However, the search for missing Magic continues as Irvine continues to appeal to bring him back.
How the Friendship between Horse and Owner Blossomed
Bree reminisces about how Magic had not been easy to handle from the start. For almost a year, he had not been an easy horse to train. But soon, he had moved from throwing her off every time she got onto him to catching her every time she was about to fall. That is where the real friendship began.
The black gelding, 15 hands in height, has been a champion horse at the pony club for a while now. Magic was brought into the Irvine household six and a half years ago when a friend purchased him at an auction. Bree has loved and cared for him ever since. Trained at jumping, sporting events, taking a swim at the beach or letting you bunny hop onto him, this horse is the ultimate companion which is why the loss can only be so much harder.
To Bree, the brown and black gelding is part of her world and she fervently hopes he will be returned back home without any harm done. It is believed that the robbery took place between midnight and the early hours of Christmas Eve, however, this young girl isn’t planning on giving up on the missing Magic and the search will continue till he is found.
Irvine Appeals to Bring Her Horse Back
Irvine is not merely sitting and weeping her eyes out but is instead trying to reach out to people in order to get her best friend back. The inconsolable young woman immediately began an online campaign across social media after Magic was stolen. Along with putting up various photos so that people can identify the horse easily, a hashtag #findmagic has also been making the rounds and has reached about 100,000 people already so anyone who has any information to share can do so.
This Facebook page of Irvine’s is not just being used for the purpose of getting help from people but also to communicate directly with the thieves and let them know that all she wants is her horse back. Not only has Irvine assured the thieves that they won’t come to harm but she also went on to say that even if they leave a tip about his whereabouts, she would pick him up and not take action against the culprits.
The police and neighbors seem optimistic about getting the horse back and claim that it is a case of when they find magic and not if. Missing for a couple of days already, Irvine is still hoping to get her horse back. She is trying to appeal to the humanity of the thieves but it is clear that as long as Magic is missing, the search will continue.
