Scary buying/selling experiences, anyone?
With the world being such an unsafe place now, I am wondering if any of you have had any unsettling experiences either looking at horses to buy or sell? I had a friend years ago, who went to this place that gave trail rides, pony parties, and hay rides. She went there to give them some free pigs, and she took a friend with her. A man in his early 20's let them in, and locked the gate behind them, he then began blocking them in with tractors and other machinery. They were terrified, had no cell phones with them, and saw no way out, until a truck arrived to deliver feed and hay, and they were able to leave. There are people out there who will come out just to case your place, I would just like to caution everyone to put safety first anytime you advertise anything or go looking to buy.
And, BTW, the man who blocked them in later went to jail for several sexual assaults, and is a suspect in the deaths of several teenage girls.
