He's not his he's mine!
Just a little peeve of mine. *pee now this might be lengthy*
So everyone knows the story of Kevin and Sammy right? If you don't here's long story short, if you do feel free to skip this: I bought Sammy for Kevin who had hired me as his trainer, was going to reimburse me in two payments for purchase of the horse plus 20% finders fee (lesson learned I'll have a written contract for the next client). The minute I get Sammy to the barn Kevin doesn't want him, says he's afraid of horses, then he only wanted a horse to get into girls pants ( WHAT!!!!),refuses to reimburse me for the horse and disappears. I freak and finally find a half lease to cover my butt until I can get back on my toes from this. Found a half lease/lesson student for Sammy, she's wonderful. Kevin is now legally not allowed near the barn, me, or my animals especially (and it's in writing he's not allowed near Sammy).
Ok. So my sister (just a very close childhood friend sister like) emails me and lets me know Kevin still has pictures of Sammy on his facebook. At first I shrug it off, then I go look and not only does he have pictures but now they say he's HIS horse, AND there are people commenting saying he's so lucky to have a horse and all that. That bothers me because that's my horse, not his. What if they want to ride him? They can't, he's mine, I don't share green horses with "oooo he's pretty" people. I don't have Kevin as a friend on facebook and messaged him asking him nicely to either please correct people or delete the images. No response, nothing happens, their still up today. One of my students notices this and comments nicely after an "awww you have a horse that's so cute!" comment, that "well he did have a horse but because of his inexperience and work/money issues he decided it best to turn the ownership over to the trainer" She tagged Sammy as mine as well. No response, no come back from Kevin, nothing which is a good thing I think. I guess the comment bothered my student too.
I know it shouldn't bother me but he's not allowed near the horse, he didn't want the horse for anything but to get girls in the first place (which he lied about until I had the horse at the barn), and bottom line Sammy is NOT HIS HORSE. I have it in writing from the seller that he's in my name and she received the money FROM ME. On top of that, according to my sister Kevin can't figure out for the life of him why he got a legal letter saying to stay away from me and my animals. He doesn't see anything wrong with what happened. AND he's been fishing through my friends list, found the girl who leases him and has been harassing her about the horse. She's repeatedly told him to leave her alone and he just recently stopped contacting her.
Sorry for the novel. I had to get it off my chest. I'm not asking for advice or anything. I'm just complaining.
When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!
I don't want lemons! I want cookies!
