If you google "Fairy Knob Farm breeders of fairytale horses" it will come up.

She also stated that CA's people told her it could run her as much as $3000 for the necropsy. With no offer to pay for it. It sounded to me as though they were trying to discourage her from having it done. And his "generous" offer to give her a 14hh QH to replace a 16+hh Friesian? I would have turned that down too. Apples to oranges. That horse was probably worth quite a chunk regardless of training. And my guess is he knew she would turn it down as well.

Well, if we start comparing professionalism, any picture of a fairy used in a writer's / gardener's / horse breeder's website, is much more professional than CA's "statement."

Then she's just as much at fault for not finding a neutral vet to call and price options. For all we know, the $3000 is including the cost for transporting the dead horse to a good place to do an autopsy, and disposal.

just because you don't like qhs, doesnt mean that the offer wasnt genuine. Just pointing out that not everyone thinks friesians are better than qhs..

This is all speculation, as we don't know how this communication went.

However, my horse died suddenly at a training facility, I'd be shocked and grieving, and maybe not 100% sharp on every issue.

Conversely, if I was running a horse training facility and a client's horse died, I'd make sure I walk the client through all the procedures, and take into account that the client could be in shock.

She says on her FB, right after the horse died, that they didn't want to do investigate any further, because they are not planning to sue the facility, and they don't think there was any negligence involved. So suddenly who is not suing (for once!) is somehow at fault?

Sorry, horseless one-I have to disagree. I could NEVER see anyone with all that fluffy stuff on their farm page as a respectable horse person, any more that I could respect a counselor I net once who told me to call her "Muffy". As a HORSEPERSON (which Is, I believe what we are discussing, right?) I would take his point of view any day. She portrays an image of butterfly farts and unicorns which I do not buy into when it pertains to 1200 kb animals that can hurt you when coddled. For the non-horseperson, it may be totally different, and fine to see all the fluff if you don't know any better. I do not consider fairies any more professional than CA. JMHO. I think she seems a bit "out there". Sorry, but I find it interesting when you state what you would do running a training facility when you cannot even figure out what the trainer is teaching your daughter.

We also have no evidence that CA threatened anyone with anything, so that is total heresay.

It seems strange to me to judge one's horsemanship based on one's FB design. I don't even see her site as "fluff." It is artistic. Different perceptions, I guess.
