Ok, so my brother-in-law was given a horse by a down on his luck doctor! Only condition was that he takes another horse with it! And the dealing was done through a mutual friend bc the doctor had no time for it apparently. So he ended taking two horses Rain and Spirit (who he gave to his uncle) and a pony for his kids. Rain was apparently previously owned by a man we'll call Mickey, who this small town all know of. Well, doctor sold off everything else! Guess who bought the farm (literally)...Mickey! My trainer friend had been talking to him at his new farm and he told her since she had liked his mare so much in the past she could have her! My friend tells him that the mare standing in the field (ven tho pretty similar in color) was not Rain. He didnt believe her. She told him Rain was taken. Well, apparently Rain was the name of the horse still at that farm. My brother in law had picked and taken home the horse named Sierra, who is Mickey's horse, and was only being kept there! Wasnt supposed to be sold! The mutual friend had mixed up the horses and I don't thin kthe docotr even cared enough about them to tell them apart! Mickey the previous owner didnt remember that his horse had a star, not a blaze and was yelling its name "Sierra" to the actual horse named Rain....so I havent told my brother in law all of this bc Im not sure if this guys going to try to get her back or not. I don't want him worrying about it of being mad at me for being the bringer of bad news....Can this guy get the horse back? The pony had lamanitis and thrush! Our farrier recognized them when we called him to get them fixed, and said he only trimmed them once a year, and the last time he had seen the pony and trimmed it, her hooves were curled and touching her coronary band!
