Rare Stolen SC Horses Found and Returned Safe


River and Yago, owned by Jackie McFadden on a South Carolina farm, had been missing for over three months.

River and Yago,

The two Carolina Marsh Tacky horses were stolen from the back pasture from Dragoon Farms in Boykin, SC just outside of Camden, SC in Kershaw county.

The hot wire on the back gate was cut and the horses were stolen during a severe rain storm. Both horses would have to have been walked out of the pasture and lead down a side drive and loaded.

But when 92-year-old neighbor, Nora Keehn, found out that the pair of Marsh Tackies had been stolen the nearby farm, she made it her life’s mission to bring them home. With grit and determination Ms.Keehn assembled an entire team to search for River and Yago.

A Facebook page was set up to help get the word out about the missing horses, and updates were regular on the page.

Finally late Thursday evening, after months of searching, the horses were found safe.

Jackie McFadden told NBC Charlotte, “Ms. Nora is a remarkable woman. What she has done is a miracle. Her love for horses brought River and Yago home. We are ecstatic and so grateful to Ms. Nora to have our beloved horses back where they belong.”

Keehn is not a stranger to the horse world. She was one of the first two licensed female jockeys in the United States, and she was inducted into the Arizona Quarter Horse Racing Hall of Fame on Dec. 7, 2002.
