As my very wise grandma used to say" side A, side B and the real truth which nobody ever hears.
As far as the necropsy, CA COULD not ask a vet to do it. The owner HAS to give the okay, if , as in this instance the animal is not close by, they have to fax the information and okay to the vet. To not have the owners permission is a cause for lawsuit for both the vet and the trainer who said it do it.
I have no feelings one way or the other for CA or any of the trainers, but this is my opinion:
I can understand how some feel CA's letter was harsh, but if we are reading on here what the woman has posted and her facebook and stuff, it has to make you wonder just what vendetta she has started against CA, and maybe he was just tired of it. One person can ruin anyones reputation and and it sounds like this owner is stating lots of truths and untruths depending on where it is being read. I questioned her post about making the horse hungry before it left? Strange, most folks feed in the trailer for a ride. She also posted how dangerous this horse had become bucking people off, etc.
I do wonder if this had been her "local" trainer or friend of the family, or someone other than a big name trainer, would she be posting all this stuff? It seems as if CA offered her a horse to replace the lost one.Sounds like she likes BIG tough horses, maybe what she needs is a small horse that is trained that she can control.
It is sad the horse died. Accidents happen all the time to any animals. One minute they are fine and appear healthy, the next minute they are dead...
