Lies.... Grrr.

Yesterday I went out to work with Lacy and while I was there me and my trainer decided to see if we could find Lacy's papers since I guess her former owner had dropped off the papers of the horse that came with Lacy. We couldn't find Lacy's papers, but I did see a sheet that definitely said to me that Lacy is 24 when I had been told that she was 20. She's in really good condition for being "20" and in even better condition for being 24 but it makes me mad that her former owner told me she was 20 and my trainer didn't tell me that she was 24 when she found out. It also gives me less hope for turning her into a normal horse instead of a crazy one but I love her anyway since it's not her fault she's crazy and it's not her fault that she's 24, but still. Anyway, my rant is over.

Aww, that sucks doesn't it. I kind of know what this feels like, but it was more of a positive thing for me. Jubilee's previous owner told me she was 25 when I got her ... when she was really 17! I don't know how some people get these numbers. Of course we still adore our horses no matter what age though!

Wow! That's neat that she turned out to be way younger than you thought! I'm glad I'm not the only person that's found out their horse is really a different age. Lacy's old owner was the person that foaled her too so she should have known her exact age. Dang people. I guess if I look on the bright side I probably have at least 5 or even 10 more years with her since Arabs are known for their longevity...

You know sometimes things are so hard but as I always say, getting vet checks, tho expensive can do a lot more than just check for general health. You can at least get a guesstimation as to the horse's age without relying on what people tell you. It's sick how dishonest people are with an animal when it's a question of selling it or giving it away.
Good for you guys for sticking with it. We need more of you around.

Aw, I hate things like that. :( Well it's still good she's younger than you thought, but still, yeah, I don't like when people lie like that myself. It's good you found out though.

Ride more, worry less.

I hate it when people do things like that, but there only hurting themselves in the long run. Your trainer might just not have wanted to get in the middle of it? That could be a weird position to be in.
