No, it wouldn't be so much unbelievable, except that the OP is either a boarder, a BO, or has her own private farm, depending on which thread you happen to be reading.

She also claims to have a Friesian stallion as well as a Warmblood one. I'm not just skeptical, I'm downright convinced she's nothing more than a troll, making up stories.

Oh, I'm not saying this specific instance is truth lol, but I was saying I could see it happen to someone somewhere.

I agree with both SR and Ndappy.

It very much could happen. And I agree the OP is nothing more than a troll who obviously has a very boring life and thinks it is a good time to make up topics and post them on the internet.

Yepper, some people must have very unfulfilled lives.

I remember a friend of a friend type person used to board her horse at a riding school/livery yard she was a hunter so only turned up sept till feb and the horse was to be on holidays the rest of the time.
Turned out he was being used in the riding school and as they were to fitten him up for hunt season she had no idea!!

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable

I want to know why anyone would say it was theft? It comes down to a he said/she said situation. Law enforcement would not do a darn thing.

As far as the BO not having morals? How do you know the supposed rider didn't tell the BO she had permission? People lie to BO's too. I require written permission for anyone to handle another boarder's horse to eliminate the possibility of being lied to.

We have it in the rules at our barn that no one can ride or use another persons horse or tack without written permission. Safe guard for everyone. We also have individual tack lockers that can be locked if the boarder chooses. Solves the problem of missing or unauthorized use.

I think she was saying it was an on site clinic.

Myth= Free/Cheap horses are expensive.
Indy was $150 we keep her in a pasture with a shed for free and she is brushed and fussed over dailey. Other then deworming and feet trimming she isn't costing us anything.

Well... seeing as she never updated... I don't think it was real. Just someone looking for attention.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

She may have been looking for nothing more than attention, but it's still a great topic to discuss. I don't pay for a stall board. Since I've joined this stable I only pay for a pasture board. When I had my first horse years ago I used to set up hidden cameras that pointed towards my horse just in case. I never caught anyone using my horse, but I did catch a sweet little girl giving my horse a treat. I didn't take that severely because one treat won't hurt him. It was actually really cute.

Thats a smart thing to do! And it is a good topic to discuss but I figured that she didn't reply this whole time it wasn't true.
