We did them because he was being donated and now he isn't. How would you feel if you donated a sizable amount of money to a Horse Rescue and it turned out to be Bernie Madoff's (sp?) newest ponzie scheme? You did something under false pretenses. I wouldn't have donated anything to this horse if I knew she wasn't really going to donate him, I would've taken care of the horse per the agreement untill she figured out it was going to cost her an arm and a leg and she took him somewhere else.

That was my original reply to you. By the way you described her, it seemed obvious that was going to be what she was going to do. And since you knew her didn't that at least cross your mind that you could provide extra for the horse and she would end up keeping it?

I have donated to rescues that really seemed on the up and up and it turned out they weren't. I don't donate to rescues anymore. It's the chance you take.

Just look at that at least for a little while you provided some care and happiness for the horse.

Did you have something in the contract that said she had to give notice or if there was money owed the horse would be kept to be sold to cover the remaining money owed?

Yup... that's in every standard boarding contract right? I know that's in mine! Why to people have horses that they can't afford or even know how to take care of? People should really have to pass a test before they can own horses!!

Boy do I agree with that!

We have boarders up here that never see their horse. They just send the boarding check every month. It's a full care facility. There have been so many times that someone just stops paying the board. They just never come up, never call... nothing! So the BO seizes the horse and will sell it and all their tack.

BO says it's a status thing. You get to have a picture of your pretty horsie on your desk at work but do nothing as far as ownership goes.

Our BO and the rest of us do what you did. We give those horses extra attention and love. But we also realize that those people will never ever change. They just don't get it. It's so **** aggravating!!!!!

I just think it's great that the horse was shown some kindness, even temporarily from you guys.

Whilst that woman is obviously a witch, I congratulate you for what you did. Be proud for taking action where it was needed, rather than just standing by. That's hard to do in a society like ours, where people are sued for the strangest of things.

If she doesn't learn eventually, she will continue to get kicked out of stables like yours. Have hope that one day the horse will get a better owner.
