Annandkev-I did tell her about us, as I was explaining some of the story about how I got involved. So-she is aware. Perhaps over time OP can convince her.

I got an email from B (Prada/Belle's current owner) I responded, giving her a link to a thread I made in a cat forum way back when. It has lots of baby pictures, some including the dam.

What hurts is how M had to have just been being hurtful. I had been talking to friends about my own physical limitations and large number of animals I care for (almost all rescues) I said it would be so wonderful for her to have someone young that had fewer horses, more time, energy. A mutual friend on fb sent Megan to me. We had long talks, I got to see Megan's other horse and where Belle would live. Megan's other horse is in her late teens, Megen said and Belle would be her replacement when she retired, in a few years. That would give Belle lots of time to grow and mature. I am a firm believer in not starting horses too young. It seemed perfect. She came and picked Belle up.
There was lots of contact, pictures and a couple of visits. It was after the move to NY that contact slowed way down.Yhen M gave her to "a woman" with cancer. M made it sound like the cancer had been around quite a while and Belle was therapy. I was ok with that, I liked that Belle could help someone. I was concerned that if the cancer was that bad, is the woman going to die? Then what?

Contact really went down, then the news that M was coming back to Kansas.
Oh, hubby is in the military and was looking at getting out. I was not informed that the plan was to go to New York, one reason I liked M was that they would be close, going to New York was a shock. But, M had said, the horses would be staying at her Mom's farm until they got their own place. It sounded like a good plan.
All of a sudden, hubby gets promoted, stays in the military and they come back to Kansas. I hear nothing at first, so I contacted M for info. From there it turned into the nightmare. Remember, this is what I was hearing from M.
Megan goes on about the current owner, B, is "getting rid of" Prada because of getting hurt every time B worked with her. Made it sound as if Prada is being abused, to act out. Talks about her being shut in a stall, 24/7 for two solid months. Said that she (M) sent a friend over to get Prada, if B wants her gone, fine. Well, here is where M starts saying B has become a "psycho b-witch" and demands money for what has been spent. The messages are few and very short, cryptic little notes about Prada "not looking well", how I would not want to see her because she looks so bad.
I listened because, well I had trusted her with my baby to begin with, and why would she lie? It never crossed my mind that she would say things that she knew would hurt me, just for what??
I never did anything bad to her, why would she, intentionally cause me so much pain?? I don't understand.
I always have said that I like animals way better than people, for good reason. I've seen what humans do to animals, and each other. I just never imagined someone would be so hateful to me, when my only crime was giving them a great gift. I gave her my baby, what did I ever do to deserve this?

The only thing that makes this bearable is that I do believe Prada/Belle is in good hands. And the people I have met here. Thank you for helping me remember that there are wonderful people in the world!

Sounds like Megan is an attention starved drama queen.

Oh, I have said nothing to M. Unless B has said something to her, she doesn't know we are in contact. In one of the emails B said that she has "Written her off" She said that M was mean and nasty to her. B is happy to be able to get info on Bella, Megan stopped telling her anything. B's email this am asked for Bella's birthdate.

M has sent me a quick message that "the owner" decided to keep her (Bella).

I would love to see the look on M's face, if she ever heard. If she does contact me and make any comments, I may tell her. But otherwise I have no interest in having anything to do with her.

I feel like my head is spinning. I just got an email from B that she is going to have to sell Belle, for financial reasons.
I'm not going to ask, pry into her business. I just bet that, even with insurance cancer/double mastectomy would be costly.
I guess I'm back to hunting for a shipper. I did ask B for her address so I can get an estimate.
Am I being selfish? I can handle having her and there are trainers here. I have regretted her being gone. I'm not having to "rescue" her, but I hate her going to someone I don't know (don't get to pick).

No you are not being selfish.

You're just back where you were a few weeks ago, except better off because you're in contact with the current owner.

If the owner genuinely cares about her she should be glad to have you standing by!

Just be careful she doesn't hike up the price because she knows you'll pay it. Doesn't sound likely but you never know.

Is there anyone who can make sense of this?

I asked B for her address so that I can get shipping costs. She sent me an email back pretty quickly. She gave me her address, followed by this statement. This is a quote.
"if u can't take her back cause of shipping cost, she will stay here, cause i would not want her to go to anyone but with u."

If B is having to sell Bella for financial reasons. How could she be able to keep her just because I couldn't take her?? She has said she doesn't want to sell, well shoot after all the gushing about how everybody loves Bella, her one mare sees Bella as her baby and "they are inseparable", etc. It would be pretty desperate to have to sell her, for financial reasons.
I am so confused. It just seems fishy.
