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.
