How can you adopt out stolen horses?
Wow does this CL poster know how to evoke a number of different emotions in their reader!
“these ponies were stolen via a bad check by a william turner..possesing chechs for a mr antz..beware..reward for return of these rescue ponies..was said they were relocated to maxton area..prob resold…was said given away…any infor call ##########. paint pony rides with or without leadline has one major vice and that she can be hard to catch..will ride in leadline and halter bareback..really doesnt like to bridle due to past carting issue..but will do it..just needs a litle work..coggins good till january exposed to a black and white A sized mini however cant guarentee she took. can’t be rode by a large child as she is very dainty.. other is a mare b sized mini sorrel in color with star stays fat on air..needs training time ..would be best on a dry lot due to her weight increases very easy keeper. She was exposed to black and white mini as well. Both ponies load and bathe…the stallion they were pastured with is double registered so if you luck up and get a baby out of this deal you got one heck of a steal! Both are rescues so i will be checking their prospective homes for safety, vetting, ect this is an adoption fee and if ever you dont want them they are to be brought back to us! this is 200 each one..will separate if you already have a horse or pony for a companion for them..if not they must go together..first come first serve. must go this week. “
First, I was all sad because ponies got stolen. Then I was kinda mad because ponies got stolen! Then I experienced some confusion because I didn’t understand why they were including details that wouldn’t help the ponies be identified. And last, but not least, I experienced resignation and bitter humor at the attempt to
sell adopt out ponies that they may or may not have.
I don’t know about all of you, but I have problems feeling sorry for an entity calling itself a rescue that goes about pasture breeding their alleged rescue horses! I don’t know how breeding rescue horses usually goes, but gosh, I don’t think they typically wait til a foal pops out to confirm that the mare is in fact preggers. Don’t ya just love how the “rescue” will be checking “prospective homes for safety, vetting”? Isn’t that a mark of a good rescue? I mean, sure, a better rescue would be having their own vet out to at least check whether or not the mares are pregnant, but who’s judging? Maybe they were stolen before the vet had a chance to check them? Gosh, I certainly hope they find their way home in time to be adopted out within the stated week deadline.
Ugh, I hope this ad is just a copy and paste job gone wrong – that could certainly explain away some of it. But there’s no getting around a self-proclaimed “rescue” breeding its adoptable horses. Where’s my rolled up newspaper? I need to lay the smack down on some noses.
