    OK I was on the phone with the local PD in that area and the cell phone rang it was the people who have my horse http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif It was the mother stating that both of their computers crashed. So that is why she couldn't E-Mail,the fatherin law died,(i understand things happen)

    She said she was refinancing their house on monday and Tuesday the check would be in the mail.

    OK So I have notified the PD and spoke to the people who have him, told the PD the plan, if I do not recieve a check by the end of next week I am on my way there.....Who's coming!

    IF IT SHOULD MATTER:
    OH I did find out that they did great at the state horse show in VA this past weekend.

    Since it sounds like a misunderstanding, I think it would be appropriate for you to delete the identifying information about the people who have your horse. It does not seem right that you've posted their name, address, phone number, etc. on the internet.

    you would have done the same, and the matter is not over I do not have my horse and I haven't been paid yet! I have not physically seen the horse or his conditions. There is no excuse why I wasn't notified 3 months ago, and if I hadn't tried so hard to get intouch with them in the last couple of days, WOULD THEY HAVE CALLED? They aren't out of it yet as I am not sure I believe a sentence that they have told me before. "I WILL PAY YOU IN FULL!" As soon as I get full cleared payment they will be deleted and a phone call to the local pd will be made as also Spiders papers and a complete bill of sale will be mailed to the new owners.

    I can assure you that I most definitely would not have done the same. From what I've read of your posts, you came on the board to inquire about the location of your pony before going through your files to find the address. If you've not been paid for three months and are just getting around to finding their adddress now, I question your priorities.

    You've also never answered whether you have a signed contract with this person.

    While I do not doubt you are telling the truth, I think you went about this all wrong. One of the BB rules is that you have to have proof before you make allegations. I stand by my statement that it was completely inappropriate to post someone's personal information (name, address, phone number) on the BB.

    B*%ch, B*%ch, B*%ch, good, now we know that different people would handle things differently. Never seen that before on this BB! Hey if it is a problem (that names are posted) I am sure that the "MODERATORS" will contact the op. Lets not turn this into a B*%ch fest. It does seem a bit weird to me that they went to a show(can afford to) this weekend but can't afford to stick a payment in the mail? Good work WPS, keep at it!!!

    I have been lurking here for a while. I have read this thread as well as the other one. Welsh Pony, I so hope you get your horse back. I don't know if I would leave it with those people. I mean, if they can't pay for the horse, what about vet bills and things like that? I wish horseback riding was less expensive. But it isn't. Good Luck!!

    Ok...Lets see. Aperson takes whatever measures she can to find her animal and does locate it right a way&gt; HUMMM... I think you did it right since it worked. I do try to not post names here... But I have to say the BB is known for people post personal opinions. But wait it gets better when they send you private posts and rip your head off. WELSH did what she felt she had to do... and it worked. I think you have a plan now and you can stick to it.. One way or another.. you will get payed or the horse! I wish you had posted this earlier.. I was at state last week! ( not a cheap show i might add!)

    Well, ComingAttraction, it seems like the OP agreed with me since the identifying information has been deleted from both threads.

    Sorry; but to me it sounds like the buyer's excuses for not paying you for the horse are a bunch of 'pony bunk'. They paid you a whopping $100 (if I have got the facts right); took the horse out of state; showed the horse sucessfully; and they haven't paid you because their computer crashed and the MIL passed away??? Pony bunk! Also; people don't re-finance their homes in one day... I will be NOT be surprised if you DO NOT get paid in full next week!!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/uhoh.gif

    Here are a couple of things that kind of bug me:

    1) The person suddenly calls shortly after her information appeared on this BB after not returning ANY calls or e-mails for three months. I understand that she wasn't able to return e-mails because her computer was down, but what was her excuse for not returning your phone calls? I understand her FIL passed away, but that didn't seem to stop them for going to the big state show, did it? So what really stopped her from returning your calls?

    AND

    2) They have enough money to ship the horse to another state, take lessons AND show at a big show, but they don't have enough money to make the agreed upon payments? Okay...that makes sense. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif Yeah, right!!!

    I wouldn't trust them to make the full payment by the end of next week. I would let this person know that you expect full payment by Monday (preferably via wire transfer) or you will be there Tuesday morning to pick your horse up.

    I'm with JD on this one. Money in my account by Tuesday or horse gets picked up. Shabby treatment at best on their part. Perhaps they hoped you'd just forget????

    It wasn't a bitch fest, it sounded like a good suggestion couched in reasonable language.

    Well Lily, you are right, you are the best and Supreme advice giver. You can pull the panties out now...If you did actually read the whole thing you would have realized that this woman did say that she was silly for not writing up a contract. She also said that she was not sure what happened to their address. She confessed to all of her mistakes! Some on this board suggested some avenues to pursue, she took the advice and was successful. Don't make this out to be something other than what it was. Trying to locate someone. She did not say that they stole this horse just that they had lost contact. Where is the harm in that? S%*T happens and people lose track, unless of course you are perfect.

    Again, this is exactly what should not be happening. This is just about a woman trying to find a horse. Nothing more, nothing less. If this was crossing the line than that is what we have moderators for. She never accussed them of stealing! Lets keep on topic and help the woman not chastise her for not getting a contract in writing. Hey, we ALL make mistakes. Sometimes we can fix them sometimes we can't. Hopefully with our help she can fix this one. Thats it.

    I am curious about something. I am new here, but I have lurked for a bit, read various topics to get the flavor of the community.

    Am I wrong, or are there many little fights going on? It seems to happen in so many topics.

    This poor Welsh Pony didn't do anything wrong, at least not that I could tell.

    I guess I just don't see why people have to be mean. I bet there are many people who lurk and don't add anything to the boards for that very reason. They are afraid of being "yelled" at.
