    ^^ I personally know a horse dealer that has done that in the past to someone else I know.
    The horse, when not drugged, would rear and flip when you tried tacking it up.

    She also has a policy that if you're interested in a horse she tells you the day and time to be out there.
    I found that out after looking at horses she had for sale. Thankfully I didn't buy a horse from her (they were way overpriced too)

    Got2Gallop, I thought the same thing! If he's a farrier, trim the horse so when people come to look at her, it doesn't turn them off.

    Well I think you should go back and talk some sense into the owner!! Not that it would help now but it might teach them a lesson!! :)

    I just hope someone doesnt get hurt on the horse thinking its so calm and well trained. When my sister and I where shopping for her a new horse we ran into a few of those people who would just down right lie through their teeth to sell ya a horse. We always went to appointments early and my sister would always make the owner ride first!! That turned out to be a great policy!!

    The reason why they cant/wont trim her is because she needs to be sedated to do so.

    I know how frustrating this is. I know a chic right now with a whole bunch of starving horses that she advertises as 'child safe' only because they are so malnourished and underweight they haven't the energy to fight. You get them home and fatten them up and it is a WHOLE different ball of wax. (I have reported her and so have others, I don't know how she stays in business.....)

    Anybody dealin with horses autta know how the term 'horse trader' came to be known as a bad thing..... Ya better take a grade A bs detector with you, that is ALL I can say....

    I've seen horses that were wild as heck for one person and calm as can be for another.

    i would be working on that issue ASAP. It looks really bad on the seller and I can only imagine it's going to really keep buyers away from both a lack of proper horse care as well as lack of handling and correcting of the situation.

    It's out of my hands at this point. I have no more dealing with those people, or that poor pony.

    I really do pitty anyone who decides to deal with these people. Anyone who asks my opinion of this facility will get the god's honest truth in my opinion.

    Exactly.

    I just sold a mare this weekend. I've used her as a beginners lesson horse and she was 100% fine. Had a friend try her and they did not get along AT ALL. You would think the horse had never had a rider before.

    The lady that bought her is 6 1/2 months pregnant. Put the mare through her paces like no bodys business. Had her friend come two days later and the mare was just as sweet and willing.

    My friend is still in shock it's the same horse.
