Horse trade gone bad
I have traded a horse worth 4000$ for a horse that is worth less then 1000$ I was not at the farm when the horse arrived my parents did the trade for me, they thought I knew about the health condition of the horse. I found out s couple hours after the trade I found out the horse I traded for has a sarcoid, the lady told me it wasn't that big of a deal and if it was a problem she would bring back the horse and trade back, I told her quot: "It's okay I talked to her, do you want to do a 2 week trial just to make sure that they are a fit for each other" she agreed saying quot : " If that's what you'd like to do, I am fine with that. I'm taking my daughter out to the farm to see Alex again. She just loves him. All I hear is "mommy, can we go ride Alex?" 😃" I have asked for my horse back as the horse I traded for was not what I was excepting quot: "Hi,name I don't think its going to work out, I think its best if Alex comes back" she avoids my message and sends me a message today quot: "Just finished at a meeting with my lawyer who reviewed the entire conversation we had on Facebook (including the messages where you and your mother both openly admit you are locking a horse up and the post you made attempting to make me out to be a liar) and listened to the situation - as soon as registration papers changed hands (equivalent to a bill of sale), the trade was a done deal. There was no agreement/contract signed in writing for any stipulations or specifics - like a trial period - BEFORE the trade took place. It was a straight across trade, horse for horse.
I've also spoken with a member of the Craik RCMP who also agrees that the deal is done and over with.
Have a nice day." later she wrote quot: "If your most recent status update is directed toward me - I suggest you stop it. Everything you have messaged me and any posts you've made regarding me or the horse - is sitting in my lawyer's office. I have screen shots of everything." I politlely told her quot: Excuse me but that's towards my mother, and I would like it if ur lawyer contacted me or my mother
I really think this girl is lying about a lawyer as she just told me another quot but I really do want help as I really do not know what I can do in this situation. Her quot: "My apologies - I thought it was directed at me.
You can seek legal counsil from your own lawyer. Thank you."
Please if anyone can give me advice that would be great!!
