A lost horse is back home in Oregon, seven months after she disappeared. And the 10-year-old buckskin mare named Buckles looks no worse for the wear.

Owner Dave Hannibal says Buckles is basically "just like she was when we lost her." He says she doesn't look like a horse who'd been on her own all winter.

When Buckles vanished in November, Hannibal's mother-in-law. Jackie Rogers, hung up scores of "Lost Horse" posters. Time passed with no word, and Rogers says she gave up hope.

Then last week, the horse surfaced just as mysteriously as she disappeared. A woman who saw the horse two days in a row put a "found horse" ad in the classifieds.

Rogers has no idea where Buckles has been — but she's doesn't plan to look a gift horse in the mouth.
