    Good morning! I thought I'd start a new "Calvin comes home" thread. I have arranged transportation from Upper BC (way up BC!) for him (thank you Carla and good luck with the weather!)

    Dinah-do in Aldergrove is going to let him stay with her. She is also arranging the vet appointment and paperwork nightmare that is necessary.

    I can't begin to thank the family that ended up with him, (after being taken in by the theiving witch), for all the wonderful care they've given my boy.

    The plan is to head up right after TGday and pick him up. I plan to hopefully publish an article about this whole saga, as well, in a PNW horse mag, so others can learn from my mistakes. The investigation continues and we will file our case (soon, I hope. It seems like we've been at this forever!) and push for criminal charges. I'll update with more as I get it.

    You can send a kid to school, but you can't make 'em learn!

    Congratulations! So glad your boy is coming home, and that you have so many great people to help you out. Why not try sending your story to Practical Horseman or one of the other bigger horse magazines? I know your ordeal kept me captivated for weeks, why not send it out to a national publication? Good luck!

    This sounds so much like one of those Equus real life tales. Write it up and sent it in!

    Calvincrowe -- I'm the legal columnist for Towerheads, and would be glad to work with you to put together an article/column for that website, if you wish. You could author "the real life story" part and I could tie that in to the legal issues. Your name could be on it, or you could do it anonymously, if you wish. Let me know!

    Yeah, Ia m so happy for you. What is the family who has him now going to do about this? Are they going to press charges? Is she going to get another horse? I am so glad there is a happy ending to this story!

    LH that is a wonderful idea.

    There have been too many stories like this ( and manty not with a happy ending)

    Calvin Crowe I think Flying Changes ( in stride cant remember which it is) is a Great idea but I feel it should be put out to the widest possible audience as well. I think with LH at hand this looks like a major story for COTH and PH and perhaps some of the other publications like AHSA or USDF USCTA etc.

    I am just Thrilled at all of this good fortune.

    YEAH!

    I agree... sounds like a story that Equus and other magazines need to get hit with! You'll hit a wider market this way AND educate more people in the process! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    Woooooohooooooooo!!! This is so exciting, I can't wait for him to come home! Hopefully in all of the excitement you'll have time for a photo op. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif And the magazine article idea is just great, I can't believe we are all reading about this as it unfolds.
