    Tired Of Helping People

    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.

    I'd be mad too..I can't stand things like that. Hopefully you'll be able to get in touch with them and work it out.

    Possiably if they ever start replying back. If not it's a small world and I've got lots ofof friends, one at that barn, I've asked him to talk to the BO about my stuff.

    Yet another example of no good deed ever going unpunished... Sorry to hear, thieves are low.. hope you recover the stole tack and equipment...

    It may have just been a misunderstanding and getting upset hurts you not them. Suggest you call and try to straighten it out. If this is their first horse, it is possible they figure all the "stuff" goes with. Good luck!

    Go to where they live would be my suggestion or catch them at the barn.

    And don't ever loan things again. If people are too sorry and lazy to buy what they need, usually they don't appreciate things anyway.

    Its not there first horse. Probably a month ago we had been discussing them buying a blanket because she said something about paying for it and I said well I just bought a nice new one for $50 and she said well I'll just do that then. We measured the horse and everything and I mentioned keeping that one for my yearling.

    The bit could be a misunderstanding, because I just said they could use it for now. Meaning your borrowing it I'm not selling it. It's a bit I haven't seen before and I like it. They have 2 other bits that work fine on the mare.

    It's been since Sunday and no replies, my mom asked for them both back.

    If you live close by, I would definitely go over there with someone and kindly ask for the items back. I sure hope they paid cash or their check cleared. It's unfortunate that your helpfulness backfired on you. I hope to still think that dishonest people are in the minority. Don't change - you've just learned a lesson and I trust you'll just be a better judge of the people you're dealing with next time. Good luck to you!

    I'm a newbie so could someone tell me what's up with the carrot stuff? What do I do with the carrot locator when it comes up? I apologize if this is a dumb question but I'm following the old saying ...there are no dumb questions. The verdict is still out on that! Thanks!

    The other barn is only 30 minutes away from me and my friend is going to talk to BO about me coming and getting my stuff.
