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.
