Just wasn't sure if anybody had missed the update I posted after the pictures. We're still waiting on our farrier to come out one day this week to put shoes on his front feet and start straightening them up again.

We aren't going to refund the lady's money, we're going to comp her for the $500 it cost her to send him down but that's it.

So she paid you $3,000 + all her shipping and and you are just going to give her back $500? If your vet said that she was alright, aside from her hooves, what is your reasoning?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

His feet have been filed down on the insides leading to him walking "knock-kneed" so to speak because of the way his hooves are. That's what they were like when we first bought him and it's several months of corrective farriery on his front feet in order to get them back to where they were. I can't remember whether I mentioned it above but he was also out through his hips in several places due to her making him jump before he was fit (this is from our chiropractor/vet not my own opinion)

Mum felt that because these issues were entirely of her making, not ours as she had made out when she called and insinuated we were "horse traders" and we'd drugged him and a multitude of other things and especially after 5 months that all she will be refunded will be the transport fee. When it comes down to it, he's technically her horse because she pays the bills so that's her reasoning for it.

Just be sure you have all the opinions from your vet, farrier, and chiro - in writing. I can understand your reasoning but I'd be prepared to defend that decision in a possible law suit. Plenty of pictures before and after as well as all correspondence will be helpful.

We have two vet reports (one pre-purchase, one prior) and our farrier is coming out this week (hopefully) to start the looooong process of leveling out his feet again. My mother has also spoken to my cousin, who is a lawyer, about the legality of everything and she says that we're well within our rights to refuse to refund the money. Hopefully the farrier will be out tomorrow so I can post some photos of before/after

Since you are not refunding her the purchase price, what if she wants the horse back?

God, what a nightmare!

I'm glad to see he's back home, at least!

iridehorses, she's welcome to him back if she wants him, but considering she threatened to dog him if we refused to take him back I'd say it's fairly unlikely. She was very adamant about needing to send him back because "even though he was s sweet horse, she can't keep a horse she can't ride".

We're still not sure exactly WHY she couldn't ride him, since all he needed was proper shoeing and a chiropractic adjustment, so we're thinking he might have just been "too much" for her, and when she couldn't sell him for the price she wanted she called and threatened and called names until mum said we'd take him back.
