We have nothing. No emails, nothing. We just talked about how he would be boarded here. My mother and my BO are suppose to be the ones grabbing him. My mom doesn't want to put me in the middle of it because I am pretty upset about the way I was treated and she rather not have any bad words sad to me. Yes we have the bill of sale. My mom is putting in her purse the day she goes to get him. We also have all his previous owners vet records ect.

Make sure your mom is not alone.

Hopefully things will go smoothly. Just want to make sure you have a witness in case they do not.

Yes Mandie, make sure your mother has at least one other person with her that day.

Witnesses are good for all sorts of reasons.

Yep. My mom is heading there on Monday with Dad in the morning. They are meeting the new BO with his trailer. He said he has been in a similar situation and its best just to be mutual and take the horse and go on your way. I plan on grabbing my tack at my lesson tomorrow night inwhich I am not mentioning the situation. I am mearly just saying I would like to clean it and wash my saddle pads. I am really ultimately disappointed because I though I bought my horse the right way with both of their knowledge and help when in reality they were just trying to make money off me. Thank god I have my mom who had horses for 20 yrs to help me through this situation.

And just a little background im not a teenager. I am 22 and this horse and the board being paid comes out of my paycheck. I budgeted and planned this decision out for a long time and its just a little nerve racking how bad it still went.

I didn't think you were a teen, but some of them are extremely well spoken and erudite, so I didn't want to make assumptions.

I'm glad your mother has horse experience. Yes, it's nerve wracking when you find out some people are just out to bleed you dry.

My guess is that you are very sweet and undemanding. Sounds like these two thought they had a mouse to play with.

Hope all goes well.

Another behind covering idea. You might want to write up and have notarized a little note that says you are allowing your mother (and father) to act on your behalf as far as securing the horse and moving it to the new stable on this date, etc, etc.

That way if the police do get involved you will be covered if someone says 'but this is not mandi'.

I would have copies of all your important paper work (and the originals safely tucked some where if the police need originals) so you can show copies in case they get dropped or snagged or lost some how.

Yep my mother was saying the same thing. I know I am very undemanding and apparently always get walked all over when trying to do the right thing. Im just happy we are out of the situation and he is heading to a much nicer barn. If he doesn't work out with my situation his original owner would like to buy him back which is comforting since he seems a bit more of a horse than they originally told me.

Fingers crossed that things go smoothly and you have the bonus of having a wonderful horse out of the deal.
