Stay away from this barn!

Anyone living in the Charlotte, NC area stay away from the (name removed) Farm! They will try to sell your horse without owners consent and black mail you into paying them for money they do not deserve! They will illegally hold your horse. STAY AWAY.

I'm sure everyone appreciates the warning, but it might pay to remove the name of the farm from your post. You can always suggest that people wanting to know who you are talking about can pm you.
Just thinking legally here, you don't want to be up on slander or defamation (sp?) charges. Not sure of the laws in the states but I believe you can get into quite a bit of trouble over here in Australia for it.

I hope, hope, hope that you did not learn about these people from first hand experience. Bring back corporal punishment I say........strip these people down, chuck em in the stocks and let passers-by throw things at them...........hmmm, the yucky side of me is coming out again lol sorry lol

Yikes! That is one scary thought. Have heard of stories like that happening in the states. We just recently had a pony stolen from a private property near where I board. Sucha scary thought and really sad. I always question how efficient chips are for slaughter as well.

what do you mean by that?

Would the slaughterhouses really bother with scanning chips if they are busy trying to make quota?
Also, who's to say that they would be 100% honest about it either?

I'm a major fan of chipping, but unfortunately the chip is only useful if the animal is found and scanned, then ownership can be disputed etc etc

I've also heard of a vet who removed the chip from a dog that was quite obviously stolen. Not sure of circumstances though, sorry.

Believe it or not the farm is my aunts. I don't really care what happens because I'm never speaking to them again.

What you describe is criminal activity! These people should be prosecuted for what they are doing!

It's your aunts barn. Oh my gosh that is horrible what would make them do something like that? And how did you find out?
    11-22-2008, 09:06 AM
People like us with never understand how you can do stuff like that, we have a heart and they don't.

That is messed up. I hope the word gets out. And they get prosecuted.

And no, slaughter houses don't usually scan for chips, as was mentioned it is all about quota.
