That's Not Right At All!

My grandpa mentioned to me on the phone earlier that he
drove by the peoples home, who I traded my gelding ACE to
for Chava months ago.He said I should see Ace, he looks BAD,
he's underweight....Chava wasn't underweight AT ALL when I got
her, so I expected they would take good care of Ace. My grandpa
said he is tempted to call the Humane Society on them, they have
had plenty enough time since they've had him to keep him healthy
and fat, I'm just REALLY pissed because even though Ace had
major behavioral problems, he was my horse and I loved him!

Also, completely off subject, but remember the ex race horse I
talked about trading Chava for? I flat out asked the man about
his weight problem and he said those were old picture and offered
to send me some more stating he's gained ALOT of weight since.
I may still be getting this horse, he is bringing him over tomorrow
or sunday for me to see him in person and ride. :)

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

They said I could come by anytime, I'm going to call the humane society on them if things don't start looking better!

I would drive by, not going into the driveway or anything, but see if you can notice him from the road.. if you do see him, or see other horses that are skinny, i would call... say that you saw skinny horses and you want to make sure they're ok.

Did your grandpa give you any more info on his condition? Did get get a good glimpse of him?

That's a tough call about Ace. The advise you got is good and as Appylover said, don't go on the property.

Concerning the racehorse, that is good! I hope he is all you expect.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I haven't seen him for myself, my husband told me I need to see
for myself because my grandpa err....does not have good eye
sight what so ever. All my grandpa told me is that he looks in
bad condition and is way under weight. :(
