About 3 weeks ago I posted my mare on Craigslist and took down the ad a few days later. I absolutely hated all the stupid people that called and wanted to barrel race with a 20 y/o mare. Also I had a friend out who worked out foxys (my mare) kinks and showed me how to handle her.
Well last night I was googling foxys registered name to see if I could find any show photos or anything from her past. I found a Facebook group that was talking about her and I clicked on the link. The group was for horses in danger/harm and they had my posting for foxy, only different. They had copied my original post from Craigslist and changed it from my email to someone else's. There were people from the group commenting on how bad they felt for her and how she needed a good home. I got angry and commented asking them to take it down as the original post was removed and stating that they did not have my permission to put her on their website. Also I said that I did not appreciate them saying that my horse is in danger or harm.
The group admin responded saying that the price I was asking for my mare was too low and she was surely going to go to the butcher. I was told it was a "measly" amount and that no horse that cheap was well taken care of. They said that I didn't understand how meat buyers trick people, and that they would not take down their posting. I persisted to tell them that she is not for sale and is being well taken care of, so please once again take her down. She is still listed.
I had purchased foxy for $200. I only had her for two weeks before I put her up for sale. I contacted her previous owner and offered her back, but they could not take her. I posted her for $250 because she came with a fly sheet and tack. I did not want to be called a flipper for asking much more than what I payed. I understand the groups concern for not wanting her to go to the wrong home, but they still will not remove her. I have had so many people accuse me of horse abuse after this incident. My mare has a very healthy weight, is on joint supplements, and gets her feet done every 8 weeks.
Is this group allowed to keep her posted even thought she is no longer for sale?
