LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A horse named “Quilt” in Pahrump is missing from her new home, just days after moving to town. Now, the community is on the watch, determined to bring her home safely.

“Hopefully she’s with somebody, that’s best-case scenario, hopefully she’s somewhere enclosed,” said Quilt’s owner Kaylee Sathers. “I just want people when they’re driving to just be careful, especially if it’s dark.”

Sathers and her fiancé moved from Las Vegas to Pahrump a week ago with their three dogs and their horse Quilt, a 6-year-old mustang.

“She’s like a big puppy dog, so my 3 dogs are like her children,” said Sathers. “They would all run to her and say good morning and give her her morning cuddles.”

Quilt went missing from her home near Homestead Road and Savoy Boulevard in the early hours of April 1, the second night she was there.

“The first thing that I noticed was that her stall wasn’t taken down or anything like that. It didn’t look it was disturbed,” said Sathers.

Sathers said according to posts on social media, Quilt was spotted near Homestead and Gamebird Roads around 5 a.m. that morning.

Then, she was last seen near a Maverik gas station along Highway 160 and Homestead Road an hour after that.

“I think she got loose, and then sometime after Maverik, I think she was probably taken, just because she’s so nice and she’s so easy. She would walk up to anybody,” said Sathers.

Since Sathers shared her situation online, the Pahrump community has been on the watch for Quilt, even using drones to help search for her.

“I’ve had hundreds of people contact me regarding her, seeing if I’ve found her. I’ve had people look on their four-wheelers just driving out and about,” said Sathers. “I’ve never seen anything quite like this before with the amount of support that we’ve had.”

Sathers also said she was contacted by a man claiming he saw her horse for sale and offering to pick it up. She said she gave him $70 for gas, and she never heard from him again.

Now, she hopes someone who knows where Quilt is will see this story and reach out to her or animal control.
