Politely, of course.

Honestly, I know that's the way they make money...but you guys ever consider the possibility that the owner could have been enough of a PITA that the CA people tried to drive her away? "You know...your horse CAN die during training "*crosses fingers* *please, please don't say you want to come!!!!!!"*

Just to throw a wrench in this. Also, I know I can't be the only potential employer that has tried to scare employees away, just in case they were there for a lazy position.

Tried to scare the horse owner away by telling them their horse might die then actually kill it? Thats not scaring-- thats premeditated horse abuse?

Read into it what you want.
Either way you will turn it around to suit yourselves any how.

Okay this thread is starting to make my night.

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

Once again...

NO ONE actually involved in this incident said that the horse was killed. The OP is the one who brought the word "killed" into the mix. The owner even stated that the horse died. She never said the horse was killed by CA or anyone at his facility.

We do all realize that absolutely NOTHING new has been brought to this thread since page 21, right? I'm with NDAppy, this thread just won't die.

Um....noooo, that's not premeditated horse abuse. You're missing my whole point.

My BO didn't want to work with a stressful, crazy witch, so she told her the things that would SCARE HER AWAY.

I didn't want to work with lazy employees who were looking for an easy job to sleep at, so I asked them questions and told them things that made me look like a difficult person.

If the peons at CA's told her that her horse "might die" (that's a big IF...we don't know what was said, nor WHEN IT WAS SAID, nor in what context), they may have been trying to scare away the potential pain in their butts. That's all I was saying.

Unfortunately, you seem to have missed my point. =(

And again, sadly, the disclaimer that I literally have no clue who this guy is, except for that a lot of people think he's a big deal?! I didn't even know he was an Aussie, but having some Aussie friends..I guess that explains his statement a bit!!!! LOL
