So if those ads posted on 3/16/2013 are from the previous owner, and on 4/9/2013 you found he was missing, how did you develop sucks bond with that horse that he knows your voice and is calling to you over a cell phone? You must have had the horse somewhere before the supposed hospital visit. Why couldn't the boyfriend mind the horse there? He couldn't have needed such high quality care - after all you left him with someone who you say doesn't know a thing about horses. He could have stayed where he was and if the boyfriend would visit him everyday, he could drop hay and fill some buckets.

In less than 48 hours you went from not knowing where he was to miraculously found? Someone paid $5k for a grade horse and just handed him right over to you without a fuss and just waved by to her money?

None of this adds up. . But eh I have no faith in anybody

Maybe OP is just emotional and nor really clearly staring it all..
But there's so many freaking gaps in this situation and details that it doesn't even sound plausible any more

My biggest issue with this "story" is NObody is going to pay $5k for a grade crippled companion horse.

*Insert something witty*

I am very close to 2 of the people that used to come here Allot who one had a horse stolen and another who just asked about color. Both ended up being bashed and shamed by people here and both were and are honest and sweet people . I give people the benefit of the doubt and don't read into things they say more than what they say. I have read posts and people here are assuming things and stating things they have taken out of context and making the OP look bad. I do know there are people here that have blown up stories for the "fun" of it but I believe the OP and Maybe if you all go back and reall ALL you may see it too. Read her stuff not what everyone else said.

I personally (don't know about everybody else) have read every post on every page of this thread...
I started out possibly thinking it could be true, but as the thread progressed and we got more of the "story" it gets harder And harder to believe.

In her defense, the post she said stating this, the woman "claimed" she paid $5k, probably to work the system and get overly compensated for her "misery" of having to give a horse she "lawfully" bought. People are pathetic these days, it wouldn't surprise me the least if she(the woman who bought said stolen horse) really paid $100 or even got him for free. But hey, free money, America the land of opportunity *snort*

Unless she's got a bill of sale she can claim she paid whatever she felt like pulling out of her buttcheeks really.

True but even if the lady was lying to try to make some bucks, if she is that kind of person, would she really just hand the horse over? No.

Here's what we know:

On 2/9 OP posted a thread about someone giving her a black and white horse, she was looking for name suggestions .. the picture is not this horse.

On 3/16 there was an ad posted for THIS horse .. for free .. which OP has admitted IS this horse .. previous owner's ad. So the horse was just being advertised for free on 3/16/2013.

On 3/18 OP posts that she has ordered and received a saddle online "a few days ago" for her horse Malomar... THIS horse... (after getting him sized) which she couldn't have owned before 3/16 by her own admission.

Ad states "no papers" .. OP says she has the papers.

Less than a month later, she has paid someone $500 for an undisclosed amount of time to take care of her horse while she's in the hospital. Her bff is checking on him every other day. Then one day he is gone. Then he is found and has apparently been sold for 5000.00, beaten, cut up, starved .. and is turned back over to OP without any legal proceedings..

I've yet to find the cl ad .. or the ad on netposse .. but I guess they could have taken them down already since he was found.

Just the facts ..... as we know 'em.

She also stated she never owned a horse without papers and has this horses papers, but the ad supposedly before she go the horse stated I do not have papers. That is where she lost me.

OOPS texasgal said it better and first, lol.

Nothing in this thread adds up.
If my horse was stolen, I'd've posted a zillion photos of him to show markings and body shape. Not one slightly skewed out if date photo.
If I'd bought a horse someone posted as being stolen, and I'd paid a healthy sum, I would not have given it back willy nilly without proof of everything.
The free horse advertised in links above is a companion animal only, not much (if any) monetary value.
Most people who pay in the thousands $ plus get a PPE or at least ride the horse first to determine if they are worth the asking price. I don't quite know why someone would pay $5000 for a horse with a broken wither (which by the way isn't a bone in and of itself, but rather comprised of vertebrae and scapula. So "broken wither" isn't accurate.. Which bone(s) were actually involved? Moot point here, just another inconsistency.)
Theft is a very serious allegation. I personally don't like to be toyed with about these things, and unfortunately posters have lied about theft in the past. That's what gets my goat, if you will.
I want to help legitimate cases, and this one has not made any sense. That's why my back is up. Time wasted on stories means that there's less time spent on actual legitimate cases.
I will say this - if this is all true (or at least in part), I hope that if I'm ever in this situation, my horse is returned to me as quickly!
