Ugh, some people
I just have to get this off my chest!
I bought a horse off this woman late last year, I was told a lot of things about this horse which all proved to be less than accurate. However, that is not the issue.
First off, I purchased a horse off another lady about a month or two afterwards. I mentioned the horse I bought off lady # 1 in conversation. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that lady # 1 had bought said horse off lady # 2 only 3 weeks prior to me purchasing him! Not too mention, she paid $100 for him and tried to sell him for $700. In the 3 weeks he was advertised his price dropped to $350 which is where I bought him. However, still a $250 profit on a horse she had done nothing with. Anyway, I got duped, I'm over it.
Since buying said horse off lady # 1 though, I have seen 15 - 20 horses advertised by this woman. All have been either Standardbreds or Thoroughbreds. All have said they were for sale as "they simply were not the right horse for her". Knowing what I know about the horse I bought off her, I was less inclined to believe the story. By this time I'm more thinking, horse trader. Especially seeing one of her more recent ads with "If this horse is not sold withing the week she is going to the doggers" as the closing line.
This morning I saw something I could not and still can not believe. An ad from lady # 1 for a purebred Arab broodmare as she is "getting out of breeding". WHAT!! And then to add to my dismay, "my stallion is also for sale." So I clicked the ad for her "stallion". He is a 2 year old welsh colt. *head desk*
I just wish that there was something I could do in this situation. I feel for those who have bought horses of her, seeing as they all advertised as calm and quiet, which is certainly not what I received. I worry that someone may have bought a beginners horse off this woman and ended up with a horse totally wrong for them.
Sorry for ranting, I'm just dumbfounded!
