I still want to know what 'tied low and turned out to graze' means......we've established that CA probably could've held back a little on the down under thunder , we've established that the owner is a little kooky......I want to know what 'tied low and turned out to graze means'......

Haha maybe like I just saw in Kenya-a loose rope around the neck and a stake in the ground. On maybe one donkey or cow in a group. ;-0

Sure, he couldn't do it without her approval, however I got the impression from what she supposedly said that she decided not to have it done because she didn’t want to spend money on a dead horse. I would have offered to pay for it up front had I been CA, after that if she didn't want it done, knowing that it wouldn’t cost her a cent, than its back on her.

he was very honest and admitted the horse died, states some horses die.
Again, my statement someone put into bold type.. lots of horses are killed ..
or DIE while at a trainers. and I still believe many of them are killed at the trainers, it may be an accident , but then again , if you tie a horse hard and tight, and dont supervise it, you the trainer are at fault.

I believe that if he wanted to appear professional, he could've managed to write a professional statement. He obviously wrote his when he was pissed, and he obviously feels he doesn't need to restrain himself.

While I agree that his piece of writing is genuine and is all "Clinton," I don't agree that it works well as a statement.

He made his choice, and many people like his choice. That's fine. All I'm saying that a little bit more class wouldn't have hurt him.

i thought it was a great statement. bold and to the point and something that anyone, even a nonhorse person, could understand. i have a lot of respect for CA, not everyone would give away a $25K horse for something that just happened.

How could he not admit the horse died? Get a look alike and pass it off as the original horse? I still want to know the purpose of tying the horse low and leave it unsupervised accomplishes?

My bet is the 25K is over inflated. It was a nice jesture but if the horse is worth that then sell it and give her 25K.

It leads me to wonder how many fruit loops he's had contacting him from 'her side' he's probably over the top angry at crap accusations. I know I would be, especially if they're over the top rabid followers of NH.

It WAS his responsibility as a "world famous trainer" to insist on necropsy which, judging by how owner seems, would have been easy sell, and he should have paid for it, after reading the statement I put up of his?

I imagine he DID NOT want horse to be examined. And may not have because others in area know this is frequent occurrence there. One more might have raised questions.

This is not a statement from an innocent man, this is a statement from someone who is arrogant, and a smart ass to boot.

And like it or not...the impression he gives is "lovey dovey kiss your horsey" much more than it is "MAKE the horse DO what you WANT no matter what it takes."

He does not advocate getting tough with horses in this manner.

I hope the lid comes off him, like it did Cleve Wells and Shirley Roth.

Owner said on farm's FB page:

Dear All,
Clinton called and asked me to please stop mourning for my horse on facebook. And I will honor his wishes. 10,000 nosey noodles contacted him.
No more shares or comments please. Thank you.
