Drone Brings Missing Aged Colorado Horse Home

Finding Houdini

The desperate search for a 30-year-old horse that began on Thursday had a happy conclusion Sunday morning. The gelding named Houdini was found thanks to a high tech gadget.

A drone with infrared technology provided by Multicopter Warehouse spotted the gelding that went missing near Castle Rock. “We are so glad we were able to make this search a success,” the company said on social media.
Houdini was reportedly buried in scrub oak and fence. His aged body was cut and sore. A veterinarian tended to the bay who was still in good body condition after three days on his own. He is now resting comfortably, according to his owner Kari Edge.
Houdini is a special member of Edge’s family. He visits patients at a nursing home and safely teaches the youngest riders the ropes of riding.
Edge said the gelding escaped through a latched, but unlocked ranch gate. Houdini’s escape route has since been fixed, so he’ll have to settle for the views from home with a stay-cation.
