Good Morning all !!!
Just to keep you all in suspense I will tell you my chicken news first. I have one Lavender Ameraucana chick that I had to help out. Hope it makes it. It did loose some blood but it was pipping on the wrong end. I know I shouldn't intervene but I couldn't help it.
Anyway, on the Horse front;
Well, let me just say that I came very close to getting in trouble with the law today !!! LOL
So I am laying low. Sorry I don't want to dig myself in deeper so I can't/won't share all of the details until I get things figured out.
What I can tell you is she didn't accept my offer for $100. She told me she felt insulted. I in turn told her I was insulted by her lying to me. Needless to say I spoke with her for a long long time today,keeping on her good side. I made another offer on the horse so I'm giving her a few days to get back to me on that one.
And no the woman didn't call the cops on me. Get this, I drove to the place where the ex told me they got the horse. Long story short the guy gave me the phone number for the people that used to live there (his landlord) and said they had kept horses at this place at one time.
Then I made the mistake of showing him the pictures of the horse. When he handed me the phone number and name of the person that had lived there and had horses I said, Oh I had talked to her already. All of a sudden this guy turns into a Dr Jekel, Mr Hyde and tells me that I shouldn't buy the horse, I should call the cops, then he goes in the house and starts arguing with me from behind the screen door about this. I was just standing by my car the whole time.Then he said maybe I (he) should call the cops !! Then he comes back outside and kept repeatng my license plate number threating to call the cops about the horse and at this point I start repeating his license plate number !!! I couldn't believe this guy. I think he was higher then a kite. But what I really think set him off was that once I said I had already talked to the person who's name and number he gave me he got all paranoid that he maybe shouldn't have done that ??????
So this morning I get a phone call from an Officer who's county I won't say. I started telling him why I was at that guys house (just looking to find out info about the horse I was trying to buy) and this rude SOB says, "I don't care about all of that" (don't quote me on that, can't recall exactly what he said) then said, he just wanted to know where the horse was because the guy called and told him I had showed him pictures. (stupid mistake, I must have had a blonde moment to have done that )
SO, being as P!SSED OFF as I was at that guy last night and then by this officer interupting me to tell me he didn't care about what was said, just tell him where the horse is.
Well, all I can say is I basically told him I didn't know the address. Nor the peoples name or what county !!!
He was not pleased. I tried explaining that the horse has food and water and I know from doing a lot of research that all they can do is make sure the horse has food and water and they can not take that horse from the owner and that will just make it harder for me to buy the horse or ever be able to step foot on their property, let alone have these people out to get me for turning them in which I DID NOT DO but they would think did.
Anyway, he said he could indeed take that horse. I asked and where would you bring it? Then he said he would bring it to me !!!! LOL Yeah right. I said, ok so you would take the horse from the owners, have it vet checked, treated if need be, have the hoofs trimmed and then bring me the horse that would be in great shape right? Well, that shut him up !!! He knows Darn well that he can not just go take that horse.
So, he said, I'll tell you what I will give you until 3pm. Guess I was suppose to call him because I haven't heard back from him.
So, my thoughts on this are if the guy who made the call to the sheriffs didn't see the horse and is just going by what I said I don't think the officer can force me to do anything. He said well I took pictures. I told him, I never said I took the pictures.
I am so ticked off right now at that SOB who called. What a GDCSMFB !!! Go figure that one out !!!! lol
I guess I'd make a good POW, cause I'm not talkin. I have all of my animals and myself to protect. I sure made a mistake digging to find out about the history on the horse but I'm not sorry I'm trying to help him.
Oh and I talked to my neighbor who has lived up here all her life and gave her the name of the person who lived at the address I went to and she said that that woman (not to be confused with the current owner of the horse) is not a well liked horse woman and was a big time liar. (There are a lot of those in the horse world I'm afraid) I think that might be part of the reason that man freaked out.
I do have to say my adrenaln was going last night. I was almost in tears and in shock at this man who flipped out on me !!! Oh Sh!t, now that it's 5am I suppose I should try to get some sleep. Lots to do tomorrow and I suppose I will have Officer Friendly at my door. I told DH to make sure he locks the door when he leaves for work. I don't want them walking in on me, I don't always get dressed until after noon you know, well you all know that but Barnie Fighf doesn't !!! LOL
Ain't I bad...................... LOL
Ok, now aren't you all sorry you asked ????
