OK, first, this is NOT a stolen horse. I sold her to a woman, thinking I was doing the right thing. I want some opinions on my subject as it is weird to me and the people i've talked about it.
I got my TB mare from a friend of my stepdad. She was working into racetrack, breeding horses and going back and forth between New York and Florida for races. Anyhow, I was looking for a project horse and she told me about a gelding first. Long story short, I ended up getting a small mare 15.3 hds, 4 years old, that was going to be put down if not sold rapidly. Apparently she had some heart problem that made her loose every races and was no good to them anymore ( I know, some people kill me) anyway, I ended up getting her. I went back to basics training as she was apparently mistreated at the racetrack ( really spooky, scared of everything, pattern marks on her back legs...)
After 2 years of hard work, I needed to find a good home for her, I could not afford to keep her as I was moving out to college and had to pay for my own classes. I decided to find someone hopefully trustworthy, that would take good care of her, maybe continue her training, and keep in touch as I wanted to probably get her back when I would be financially OK.
Well I thought I found the right person, turned out this person is being really weird. She said she lived out in Ocala, 1hour from Orlando, where I was moving to. I thought great, she will get used to forests and trail rides, have a nice home and I will be able to go see her. I talked about it with this girl and everythign was ok, she agreed and what I said.
First few weeks, she would answer my emails, after that, everything starting going wrong. She changed her phone number, email adress and apparently moved out. No news at all, I spent months looking for her just with her name and old phone number. Lucky me, she sells a lot of things online, I got to found out her new adress and phone number, she was shocked the first time I called her, she would avoid the subject about my mare. The only info I got was that she moved out, could not afford horses, and gave my mare away to some friends that would use her for breeding, she would not tell me where her friends where located so I could go visit my mare. Anyway, now im here, she obviously does not answer my calls anymore, nor my emails, I tried calling her with different numbers, she might have kept them all to don't answer.
Few weeks ago, she friended me on facebook out of nowhere, and posted a picture of my mare with a baby. So I guess she wasnt lying afterall.
What I don't get is , why can't she tell me where my mare is? Why can I just go visit her? How hard is it to jus give me the adress and phone number of the presume friends that bred my mare?
Sorry for my long post, this is just really frustrating, I don't understand what is wrong with this woman! If my mare is healthy, with a foal and a nice home, why can't I go visit her??
