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!
