    I'm a native Californian who has only ever dated Mexicans. I do know that Mexicans can be racist (hell, one of their biggies is Mexicans who look really "Indian"), but outside of Junior High, I have never seen/experienced those of Mexican heritage specifically stealing from or excluding someone because they AREN'T mexican.

    Which is to say, that maybe that part isn't a factor. Or maybe it's your behavior causing them to seem more "tight knit" if you're putting off some sort of vibe. I've experienced a LOT of racism, I'm just hesitant to peg this as a race thing.

    Oh and thieves are thieves, no matter the flavor.

    I mean no racism from that. Some of my best friends are Mexican. In this town it is about 80% Hispanic, and its a small town. Like any small town, if you weren't born in it, you are an outsider. To add to that, if you are white, your life in this town really sucks. Same thing goes on at the stables. I was the only white girl there, and I was the only one who had significant problems.

    Do you speak Spanish? My HS boyfriend's aunt by marriage was a blond woman with blue eyes. She was more "mexican" than most Mexicans ;)
    Anyway, my point by that is she completely and utterly fit in. Have you considered that you may have inadvertently pissed someone off?

    Yeah, I don't think I could ever do a small town xD
    This town where I am is too small for me as it is, and it's technically a "city"!

    Jalter, regardless of anything else, you've asked for advice on getting this foal, and it seems to me there's a unanimous "Yes!!!" Especially after learning (paragraph 3) of the horrible treatment he's suffering. He's a sweet, beautiful boy, and if you become his owner now, there's an instant up-grade in his life. Stay on top of things as your planned move approaches, and be organized. It would be so wonderful for this little guy to have a good loving owner, and I hope it will happen very soon!! Your instincts were to come to the forum for advice, and I think deep down you wouldn't have done so if you didn't know you should take him.... Good luck, and Godspeed! :)

    Its a possibility that I pissed soneone off, but really, I'm sure I didnt until after I sold my horse, so it had nothing to do with retaliatio. And thank you everyone for the good advice. My boyfriend is supportive of me taking the colt as well. I'm still thinking, but leaning towards a yes.

    So happy to hear, and I hope it all works out - he looks like such a sweet boy, and my heart just goes out to him knowing of his treatment there. You'll be just the loving owner he needs :)

    I found one of my posts from a long time ago, worrying about the same foal. I completely forgot about this xD
