One of the world’s worst horse owners and Craigslisters, exposed.

We don’t usually repost links from other blogs, but upon the blogger’s express invitation, I’m inviting all our readers (yes, all four of you!) to view Worst of CL Horse Ads’ post about a really awful, terrible, no good horse owner and dealer.

If you are anywhere near Alberion, Michigan and have horse experience and a little room on your farm, perhaps you can save one of these horses. They’re not quality animals and probably not sound behaviorally or physically, but the mare deserves better than a coin flip between dying of the rotting fetus in her uterus or dying in a slaughterhouse. And the stallion deserves a chance to be a very nice gelding.

    Thank you so much for reposting this. It is rather a disgusting situation, isn’t it?

    Let’s hope that she really does want to find homes for them, because there are some that have tried and she’s turned nasty.

      After my experience with a similar owner I think the best way for someone to go about helping them would be to just act like the same kind of trash she is, have cash in hand, and buy the same day they first look at the horse–arrive with a trailer and cash, and she probably won’t get nasty at least until after the horse is off the property and the money is in her pocket. Acting like a responsible horse owner seems to sour neglectful, mean horse dealer types like this one.

      If I were in Michigan and had a place to put the stud and geld him, I’d just email her “Yup looking for a stud prospect, he looks good, lots of demand for black horses, I’ll pay cash.” Wish I could do that… you can’t save all of them, but it seems to me these particular horses have been through enough. Plus, if someone can get the mare away from her and have a vet examine her immediately, maybe they could collect enough evidence using those emails to get her charged with cruelty to animals for knowing the mare has a dead fetus inside her and failing to do anything about it.
