there is a website dedicated to locating horses around the world have you checked that out, put up fliers at local yards. If the bf did take her, hes probably boarding her unless he has a farm.

Gads, I get SO SICK of hearing 'the stallion got out and it was an accidental breeding' crap!

Just how much effort does it take to call a vet and have a mare ultrasounded and either flushed or pinched?

That whole 'accidental' excuse is lame and stinks like 3 day old fish! The only ones who use it are cheap, irresponsible people who can't be bothered to call a vet or contain their animals properly.

How old are you, anyway?

If your ex is a 'local businessman', I guess you can't be 12 y/o. With your writing style and hot headedness though, it makes it difficult to imagine you being an adult.

The fact is that BOTH of you are in the wrong. YOU for deciding that HIS horse should carry an unwanted, unlooked for foal to term, and him for taking the horse and running.

You SAY the deposit was returned, but did he accept it? If he didn't take possession of the money, and I hope it was in the form of a check and not just cash left on his doorstep, then he didn't agree that the horse was no longer for sale.

If it was all a verbal agreement, as mls said, it's just a he said/she said scenario, which is why the police won't get involved. It's a civil matter.

You come on here boo-hooing and looking for sympathy, yet you're just as culpable in this whole sordid mess as he is.

I feel sorry for the horse. None of you are responsible or mature enough to take proper care of one.

Oh my goodness, i thought everyone on the forum recently decided to try and be nicer to other forum users.

I have read through every post now and i must say that the tone of the responses (although some are ok) is completly over the top. The OP is obviously going through a difficult time and some posters are not making the situation any better for her at all. Her horse (owned and purchased by her mother) is missing, she has contacted all the local riding centres and the authorities, she has given all the information that needs to be given in these circumstances including a reference number for the police.

i would just like to say that not everyone in the world has the best literacy skills, i am not great at spelling and when i am worried i am absolutly terrible and stringing a sentence together let alone important information. so give this OP a break with regards to that. must everyone answer threads these days with scepticism and untrust?

If i had a mare and she became pregnant by means of a stallion that broke loose (would not be my fault what so ever) then i would not terminate the pregnancy unless the mare was too young, old or sick or she was competing at a high level for big cash prizes. i am completly against any type of termination, no matter what species. and as the horse was technically still the ops then it is her or her mothers decision what to do. the ex obviously could not make payments to keep the horse let alone the down payments. i would have sued the riding centre for tresspassing and theft and i would have done things slightly differently but in the heat of the moment our minds are never calm and thinking straight, she obviously jsut wanted her horse back.

so can people please just take a breath and spare a moment for this op and help her through this difficult time. and if you dont have anything good to say just dont say anything

I hope you find your horse. Have you posted papers up in local tack and feed stores?

I don't believe it's a true story, anyway.

Too many contradictions in the OP's posts.

First, she broke up with her BF because he wanted the pregnancy terminated and she didn't, then it was for completely different reasons, but she wanted him to have the horse to 'realize his dream'.

But it gets even more convoluted, because then she says the purchase agreement was 'terminated' by her decision, but not his.

If there really is a horse, she's merely being used as a pawn for each of them to hurt the other. It's like having children during a nasty divorce; some parents snatch and run not because they love the child, but because they can 'get back' at the other person.

I don't believe in 'accidental' animal pregnancies. If you're not responsible enough to have a vet out and do right by your mare, then maybe you need to rethink having animals with working reproductive organs.

If you think telling someone they need to step up, be responsible, and do what's right for their animals is 'being mean', then so be it. I'd rather be thought 'mean' than have a bunch of straggly, illbred animals on my conscience.
