So I was traipsing through some ads for horses, and I notice in one picture the barn in the background looks like the barn where I picked up Carolina. So I clicked on the ad and sure enough it is. Turns out though, the place I bought her is a huge sales barn disguised as a "Equine Bloodstock Broker." With literally hundreds of ads for various horses.
I really should have paid more attention while I was down there. How simple it all seemed to be for the transaction. But now I have a broke down horse that's going to require surgery, chiropractor visits and still needs to gain at least 100lbs.
The things I was told prior to purchasing her are different to the story I'm told now. And what's even worse, is that this "agent" has no idea about her breeding or history.
I'm peeved at myself for being so soft hearted that I couldn't leave her there. I'm peeved at myself for being so soft hearted that I have a horse now that requires an amazing amount of vet care and work. I'm peeved at myself for not demanding more information up front. I'm peeved that I have a level 4 trained showjumper/dressage mare that is worthless and there's not a **** thing I can do about it.
I don't know the previous owner's names so I can't ask them anything. The KWPN-NA, KWPN themselves, the dressage association and the hunter/jumper association can't help find out who she is.
Right now I'm of half a mind to just have the "agent" come and pick her up and take her back.
