Go read the thread "dumbest horse for sale ads" nothing surpirses me, and these horses are very similar. I emailed, so it'll be in their hands. Its soo close for me to jsut sit back and hope for the best. I'd hope someone would do the same for me.

Whether or not it's the same horse, I think you did the right thing. If more people were willing to go out on a limb to help someone else, we'd all be the better for it.

It would be hard to prove either way....
I hope it is the stolen horse and he is recovered

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

I don't believe it to be the same horse, but if Let feels she needed to make the stolen horse's owner aware of this For Sale ad, then more power to her. I just hope she hasn't caused trouble for innocent people who are merely trying to sell their own horse.

I have a feeling the stolen horse got butchered, not gelded and put up for sale by someone else. There's a very big black market for horse meat in FL, which is the first thing I thought of when I read the stolen ad.

Yes there is, sadly. Oh well I did my best. The woman called me with an attitude asking if I saw him personally, and why I didnt answer my phone on her first call... I explained I'm just trying to help.

I would hate to cause trouble for someone, but any good horse owner may understand when someone is looking for a stolen horse.

I understand completely why you gave them a heads up. I just hope your good deed doesn't backfire on you, which it sounds like it might, considering the 'tude the woman gave you.

No good deed goes unpunished, it seems.

Why didn't you answer on her first call? Gee - how dare you put your phone down! Glad to see Someone else out there that can live without her phone in her hand! I thought I was the only one that got cranky calls or texts like that! I like my phone but I can go HOURS without looking at it!

You tried. I say good for you!

The owner called me back. Not the same horse. Speed- she did say "her boy is a stud, this horse is not". Also, she changed her whole tune and genuinely thanked me for trying to be considerate. I wished her luck..

Good, I'm glad she was at least gracious to you the second time around.

Didn't think it was the same horse, but I understand why you thought it might have been. They had very similar builds, marking, and color.
