Tiny, the timeline doesn't make sense. There are links in this thread to this horse being advertised for free in March of this year. OP said that those ads were from the old owner, so my assumption is that the OP has not had him more than a month. Within a month he's gone from being a free companion horse to a horse worth $5k plus? (OP stated "sold him to her for $5,000 which isn't even close to what he's worth.") OP is hospitalized and horse is sold to buyer for $5000 and beaten and starved? All within a month? Oh and horse knows her well enough to whinny over the phone and come running up to her and only her..? Again timeline (all within a month!) doesn't make sense.
Yeah, not adding up. .
If he's a companion only animal, why was the OP buying a saddle for him?
Aaaaaaaand again, wither is comprised of different bones, is not a bone in and of itself :P
