Horse Shopping Safety

Hopefully this is okay for me to post here, but I thought this was very important to post, especially with a recent even that has happened in a city not too far away from where I live.

A young man was selling his truck, and two men came to look at it. They took it for a test drive, and Timothy Bosma hasn't been seen since. His wife called the police not long after the trio left, as obviously they shouldn't have been gone long. The homicide unit has been brought in, as this is an unusual disappeance.

This blog being posted really hit 'home' for me, so I thought I would share it to make sure everyone else was aware.

Very good point.
The same can also be said for situations in which you're selling a horse;I always make sure someone I know is around when people come to view a horse I have up for sale,you just can't be too careful in this day and age,sad to say..

Always always always bring someone. I was a moron and didn't bring anyone to meet this horse I'm now looking after. I had a weird feeling which turned out to be nothing except years of murder mystery watching paranoia... but anything can happen.

Drag someone if you must. Just don't go alone.

I hope the man is found :(
