Yes, I have met her. She was all right. The problem is the false advertising. She said she had a 13 year old mare, sound, injections needed yearly, healthy. I came along way for this mare. She was an angel! She went to a vet check on my behalf while we waited there. She was brought back and said to be sound and healthy. Didn't even need her usual injection. She told me she had a coggins on her, but we did not need it getting into our state. I believed her. I took her home, got stopped at the checkpoint and told that was not the case. I was fined. I was given the run around as I called Dynasty for some answers. Turns out, it had to be mailed. I went to my vet, as requested on the fine, and was given temporary information. The vet was curious. Asked her age. "13" I said. He said she was at least 20. He asked what she's for. "Barrels" I said. He said that she was in pain and not sound. He did a few things to determine she was in pain. I rode her hard, made her flat spin, run, all of it as I was choosing if she was a fit for me. I felt awful. She was immediately retired and I informed Dynasty. They shook off the real issue to "replace" her for me, though the horse cost more. I did not want her "replaced," I wanted them to realize their actions. She died shortly after. The coggins came and was determined to be "faked" and for another horse. My vet sent it to the Dept. Of Ag. In Texas. Not even a slap on the hand. These horses are money, workers, meat. Not loved! Do not fall for it!
