Really? A current
Bartlett sales rep told you this? I'm sure his/her employer would be very interested to find out what he/she is saying behind their back.
I researched Bartlett, and the only court case I could find was one in which they were selling a type of unauthorized pesticide. The case was brought against them by the state Ag department, not private farmers. Bartlett admitted neither blame nor innocence, but settled the case. I imagine to get it over and done with. Seems their paperwork wasn't in proper order, and they couldn't produce the authorization to sell the pesticide.
I'm very sorry for you that your horse died, but unless your vets are willing to put it in writing that it was definitely the Bartlett feed that caused the animal's death, and swear to it in a court of law, I think you're up a creek without a paddle. Vets just don't blurt out that they know for certain
that it was this one particular thing and no other, unless they have absolute proof. Which you say can't be produced, since the feed was completely consumed.
You may think we're being mean and insensitive, but even a first year law student can see that you have no case and no proof.
