Being Stalked...By Another Professional
I guess being stalked should be flattering, but this is getting old, fast. DH is an EqDT that mainly works out of MD/WV/PA. VA has very tight laws regarding EqDT's and Sean is very good about following the law to a T.
Well, about a month ago, we received an odd e-mail from a "customer" asking about Sean's certs this and that. I answered all the questions and gave a list of references, including the vets Sean works for.
Last week, I get another e-mail from this guy asking the same questions again. I look him up and lo and behold, he is an EqDT as well. Even better was that I found some treads about him on COTH where some of his clients say he was sedating their horses (which is completely illegal in VA). I e-mailed the guy back and brought these treads to his attention and at that time, he had a meltdown and became quite unprofessional. The e-mails from him have continued even though I've stopped answering them.
I will say Sean never talks bad about other professionals. He does a fantastic job and has a huge repeat business, so there is no need to "steal" other people's clients. I've been in the horse world for many years, but this was a first. This guy went as far as to say he is going to find some of Sean's unhappy clients and have them make statements. I told him good luck finding un-happy clients! Sean is fair, honest, and kind, so I doubt this guy is going to find anyone that would say a bad word about Sean.
But, the crazy e-mails continue...
