    So, I guess she "thought" the mare was worth $4,000, but now that she has her, she thinks the value is much less. I guess that makes more sense.

    My grandmother used to say
    'you know what thought did'
    I could never grasp the understanding of it but it sort of makes sense in a situation like this!!!!

    I just cannot image going into a trade willingly when I wasn't getting something at least close in value...

    Is this common with horse trading?

    You read that in the other thread. Someone different was sharing their story of when they traded their green broke gelding for someone else's well broke mare. It sounded like they wanted a well broke horse and the other was a self-professed trainer looking for a project. The trainer wasn't so great as they claimed and put the green horse down claiming it was dangerous and then tried to get the mare back.

    Has the horse even been examined by a licensed veterinarian?
    Has there been a biopsy done? What did the pathology report say?

    If this were clear intent to defraud, then the OP may have a case. Just because the horse has an ugly "boo boo" on it is not a legal case.

    That was it! Thanks Cat, I knew I had read it somewhere. I guess I'm reading too many threads today and can't keep them straight in my head. :)

    I would have been fine with the trade but when we got our vet to check out what was on her neck made me want my horse back, I have only had the horse for less then a week. I had no knowledge of what it was, our first thought it was ring worm only to find out it was a sarcoid , I live in Canada, I do not want any ones sympathy I just posted hoping to find help but with people being rude and not fully understanding the question I am finished using this forum.

    I know I should report my heart horse's death to the AHA, but I don't want to get his papers back with DECEASED stamped all over them. I know it doesn't make him any less dead, but I'd rather not get that reminder from them.
    You no longer have to turn in his papers. Just send them a note or call them and give them his date of death and they'll put it in their records but the papers don't have to be changed.

    Okay, this whole thing just infuriates me to no end. You agreed to trade for a horse that you'd never seen. You didn't have a PPE done. You didn't even look at the horse before taking possession of it. Now, you're having a snit fit and trying to demand they give you back the other horse because you couldn't be bothered to check out the mare before agreeing to the trade.

    And, to top it all off, you are threatening to put the horse down because of "A" sarcoid on her neck. "A" sarcoid will not be life threatening. "A" sarcoid is essentially nothing more than a blemish which, by the way, can be treated! They are NOT contagious.

    I feel very sorry for the mare and the poor person who entered into this trade with you. You went into the exchange without doing the proper diligence and now you're blaming the other person for your own lack of responsibility. Not only that, but you are willing to put down a perfectly good horse for no other reason than spite, it seems to me.

    What kind of person are you?

    Correction: the poster is threatening to kill the new horse only if the old horse isn't returned. A good, old fashioned case of blackmail, using the poor horse's life as the ultimatum. This just gets better and better.

    OP, that was a pretty boring hairflip.
