He would have paid for the necropsy, folks. He offered her everything but a ressurrection .. he offered the necropsy. SHE REFUSED.

What if she doesn't believe in cutting up magikal creatures so they can frolic in green pasture heaven in one piece ...? Dead or alive, he's still her horse.

SHE DIDN'T WANT TO DO IT.. her choice.

I don't blame him at all for his response. I think all this has gotten WAY outta control. Having only word of mouth from both who's to know what all mistake/info was left out to look like the injured party for either.

I honestly feel for CA. Yeah its unfortunate that the animal died but that should be between him and the owner. Reality is that horses can die alp the time. Hickstead died in the middle of a competition. Accidents, unknown causes can't be avoided so there's no reason to drag it all through the mud.

This is a quote from the person who lost the horse:

Quote:
A training facility that is so tough on horses even my vet says he may come home hairless.
My question: in what way is the CA's program considered to be so tough? Is this what the NH people think, or what is thought outside of the NH circles?

Given the owner's description of this horse .. this was probably a program for spoiled, dangerous horses. I would imagine it's a tough program .. for the horse and the trainer.

So.....this horse was tied out low to graze? Does that mean it was staked in the ground and given a length of rope to hang itself on? That's my understanding????

What is meant by "coming home hairless"? Thanks.

She seemed to be suggesting that his face was hobbled to his foot and then left there, though that wouldn't necessarily seem like the best idea. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense though. I know that Clint likes to sell his 'patience poles' where you tie the horses from up above.

Don't know .. you'll have to ask the one who supposedly said it.

Could be he was going to work the hair off of him.

Sweat the hair off him.

Ride the hair off him.

Yeah, I'm finding that hard to figure out.....tying low could mean a lot of things. Hobbling a face to a foot doesn't sound like a very smart idea.....I've seen lots of techniques, heard of lots of techniques.....but tying a face to a foot would be a first for me

I looked at the horses owners FB page, it's filled with fairy and unicorn and butterfly pictures. She also made several suspect posts about waiting to hear if her horse was still alive and then another post about waiting for "the call".
