You know they care about their animals a lot when....
....they don't have a name.
Yes, the title is sarcastic. =P
Apparently, Sasha's ex-ex-owner sold her to her ex-owner. The bill of sale went like this apparently: "Selling Horse to xxxx for $xyz."
Well, um. You spend a lot of time around your animals. =P To be fair, she was 3 years old, bred to race, possibly had "racehorse kindergarten?," possibly sold, started undersaddle lightly, then sold to ex-owner. Hmm. She didn't have papers either, she was just....Horse. Though they called her Rosemary in person, it was Horse on paper.
So, what are your stories [barring abuse] that show just 'how much people care for their animals?"
Oh cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.
