Now, for drug testing I have no idea. But I thought an autopsie was to see how someone or something died.

Unfortunately that happens, although if what you said is correct.. the owner did tell you he was trained as a trail horse, nothing fancy. How old was this horse? It sounds as though you rode the trail horse home bareback, with just a halter and a leadrope. Am i correct? My gelding is trained completely and is leased out as a lesson pony for many kids. He's even trained with a 2 year old. To this day if i ride him with just a halter and a leadrope on a trail ride he will always take advantage of it. But throw tack on him and it's the best ride i've ever had. If it was the case that you rode your horse home in just a halter and a leadrope, unfamiliar territory and was it by the road? The woman shouldn't have hidden all the details from you, but it sounds as though for both your safety and the horses, you should have been ALOT more careful.

A necropsy is an autopsy performed on animals. A professional will refer to it correctly.

lol well don't think it really matters what the "correct" terminology is for the procedure as i believe everyone on here gets what the person posting is trying to express are after all we are not all "professionals" ha ha nor should anyone take a posting on a forum or themselves quite so seriously ha ha ha lighten up!

My gelding who died a few year back had a autopsy and i will refer to it as that as all the "professionals" i know use the layman term so us unprofessionals understand to determin the casue of death this is quite a common occurance where im from....

Yes, lol. I think we all understand what the person meant. I had a parrot die and had a necropsy performed but I actually didn't know a necropsy was what you'd call any animal autopsy. I had thought it was special for birds or maybe specifically what they did *shrug* Certainly not a terminology confusion that indicates anything bad since both words mean the same basic thing.

I totally second the "lighten up" sentiments. I don't remember who made the original post so it's not directed at anyone specific, just in general to this and other online forums ^^

Yes, ma'am you could and should get your money back; you were falsely led to believe that this horse was a decently trained horse for what you wanted, only to get him a short way away and find out drastically different. My guess is he "may" have been drugged the other day when you went to try him, especially if he was really calm.

If you are unsure of how to deal with a horse like this, you need to make that clear to the owner, and tell her you are going to keep looking for something a bit more to your skill level.
