Anybody here about the abuse case conserning Sharon Jeffco on judge judy?**PICTURES**

So I watched the episode today. This woman who owns the horse lives no less then about and hour, hour and a half from me.

She sent her horse Misty to a women name Sharon Jeffco she is supposedly a world renown trainer(I haven't heard of her must not be to big). Tied this womens horses head up and beat it with a dressage whip. The owner witnessed the whole thing. But only yelled stop and what are you doing, to get the woman to stop. Apperently the trainer payed a settlement of 900 something dollars to the owner of the horse to "make it go away" she even said that on Judge Judy. So that right there makes her sound totally guilty of what she did to this horse. The trainer said "There was no blood before I put the bit in the horses mouth, but there was blood after.". Well shoot you must have been doing something harsh!

The horse was seen by a vet who said the wounds we're fresh. While this Jeffco lady showed 5 other vets pictures of the horses tongue and they all said no they weren't fresh. But I mean REALLY!? Did those vets SEE the horse in PERSON? No they seen pictures. You can't base if off pictures. So there in lies that the vet who seen the horses tongue opinion stands.

Its just stupid how someone thinks there gonna get away with something like this. The judge didn't do crap. Though the owner DOES hold half responsibility to what happened to her horse because she didn't forcefully try to stop it, but the trainer owns the other half of abusing the horses.

What are your guys thoughts on this? I will give some pictures below of what happened to the horse.

Yeah, I saw it. I'm with Judge Judy on this one. How could she stand there and watch the "trainer" tie her horse's head down and not step in? A bad trainer is one thing. An idiot owner who lets it happen to their horse right in front of them is another.

That tongue does seem to tell a different story than what was presented. No way did all that damage happen in one training session. The previous damage alone screams hackamore. Why was this woman even entertaining the idea of using a bit and why didn't the "trainer" see the tongue and say, "gee this horse isn't really a good bit candidate".

They are both morons and should not own horses. Makes me sick.

Did you miss the part at the end where the trainer said that the horse was ridden in a show 10 days after this 'incident'. I find that to be pretty telling about where the owners concerns lie.

Totally agree. If it would have been me. The whip would have been leaving welts on that trainer OR who knows she could have been smart and called the cops right then and there.

Yes. Both these woman give horse people a really bad name.

I did see that and here it too. But how would the trainer know she road 10 days after AND had pictures of it? I think they we're both lying. There both to blame and they both maybe shouldn't be dealing with horses lol.

That horse had those cuts in her mouth BEFORE she went to the trainer. The owner had to of done that to her own mare and didn't notify the trainer. The trainer didn't check her mouth before putting the bit in her mouth and jumping on. Did you hear where she said the horse must not like this bit and was tossing her head from side to side? She was in pain! And that was BEFORE the lady tied her head down! When she tied the head down, chances are the bit then reopened the previous cuts in the horses mouth causing it to bleed. Which explains why there was no blood in the horses mouth before the "training session" but there was after the "training session"

That owner is whacked and she is nasty trash that shouldn't own animals. Her horse's welfare meant NOTHING to her otherwise she wouldn't have ridden the mare 10 DAYS after this incident. She saw a way to make some money and blame the trainer.

The trainer was wrong in many ways. The owner was wrong in many ways. They are both guilty in my book and the victim is the horse.

The trainer will lose many clients because of this case and people will think twice about taking their horse to her in the future.

The trainer tried to go into detail about the horse and Judge Judy basically told her to shut up or she'll kick them out of her courtroom. So why would she continue to talk and try to plead her care? The owner was already digging herself into a hole. All the trainer had to do was sit back and watch her kill herself with the words that kept coming out of her mouth. LoL.

Maybe the trainer was at that same show? Photographers are there and it's very easy to purchase a photos.

Also, you CAN provide evidence from photos about when the cuts in the tongue were made. If the photos were taken the day after this incident, there wouldn't be tissue dying off within a matter of 12 hours. It'd all be fresh wounds, but you could see the dead tissue on the horses tongue and infection as well. Which indicates that the horse was injured prior to the said date.

Yeah. I find them both at fault. One or both of them are lying. I am not really sure what to believe. All I know is that a horse was harmed in what ever happened and horribly harmed at that. Who ever did should be taken to justice or not allowed to have horses for a long while or any at all forever.
