This is just kinda me venting because it's been eating me up. So Sunday I walked out into the barn and saw my old mare was gone, she had been gone all weekend so no big deal but the fan and my blanket where missing to. So after checking things (tack room, loft) everything was gone I confirmed that the people I had sold her to had moved her. No big deal, she wasn't my horse anymore anyway. But what really got me was the fact they hadn't told me and had known for a week. I had given the girl lessons, trained her old horse who they got so screwed over on buying to do barrel, they offered to sell the mare who I had out grown riding wise to them reducing the price and on payments. Then gave free lessons to the girl, gave them my saddle pad that I had bought for the mare (it wasn't a cheap pad) found them a saddle to buy after loaning out mine, given her reins, a very nice halter all given away. They couldn't have bought that nice of a horse otherwise, and I owned that mare for over 8 years. I kinda figured they would move her once they finished paying her off, which they did a few weeks ago because the grandmother started acting weird. They paid off by borrowing money which made my red flag go up. I know where they took her because she told some other people from the barn, but not me or my mom the manager who should be informed when a horse leaves. They had even came up and talked to me the day before at a show. They also took my bit and blanket, which was not theirs. Bit was borrowed from us and so was the blanket since they got her in winter. They knew that, because they had offered to buy the bit and the blanket and I had said their just borrowed. Now she's not returning texts to my mom, I haven't texted her because I don't know what to say I'm just hurt and angry. Our contract also states if ever sold I get first right of refusal. I'm just not happy right now, for me to give up so much time and effort to help someone and then them be inconsiderate as can be.
