    As far as I know her posts as Equinetech are legit. She did attend vet school, but she dropped out several years ago. She used to work as a tech at the small animal clinic I use for my pets, but got laid off. She currently works as a tech at a Banfield clinic (you know, the vet clinics inside petsmart).
    Thank you.

    This sounds like the person in VA that was trying to lease my mare a few years ago. I spoke to her (also saw she was trying to lease EVERYONE'S horse) and that was enough to know... that is a negative sky captian.

    It is relevant. Some of these nut jobs try to lease horses and other things here on this BB. One was getting horses and starved one to death before the owner could get her back from the breeding lease. This person also contacted me about leasing Nootka and said she would be down that weekend to look at her and pic her up. I had alreadly leased her to another wonderful COTHer so that was a no go

    It looks like she's posted as recently as today over on the dressage forum.

    HEY! (or HAY) Just when I was going to hitch up a "nag" to go for a spin, I clicked on this thread. Now my night is shot! So much for the whole "Christmas giddie-up" thing happening.

    If her name began with K-A-T, then we're talking about the same nutjob. What really pissed me off the most was that she cost me a potentially great relationship - the girl she half-leased from was someone I was talking to and getting to know and she now lives on the other side of the country too but they are no longer friends or have any interaction from what I know- by putting herself between the girl and I and everytime I tried to talk to the girl, I got messages from KAT speaking for her or KAT trying to hang out with me by saying the girl would join us for dinner or whatever. She eventually showed up at my place uninvited - and apparently intoxicated - without my having given her the address and brought a bunch of drama to my doorstep.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    Well, don't believe everything I say, because, well, I have to confess: my real name is not PeteyPie. I have also changed other names to protect the innocent... ...or my own privacy.

    Seriously, I think most people know to take this stuff with a grain of salt. The ones who believe everything they read are just going to be gullible in other areas of their lives as well. I have a family member who believes there is a Fountain of Youth in some cave somewhere because he/she (see how tricky I can be?) saw it on TV.

    Damn sounds like a desperate 3rd wheel. I can't remember her name but she told me she was in Northern VA in or around Alex or Springfield. She was a nut job.

    WOW! I may have a PM from her still from back in the day I need to go for a look...

    Unless I'm mistaking it for a similar name, EquineTech totally vanished over one Christmas. I was corresponding with her on some holiday BB related topic and POOF, nothing. Several posters and I feared she had been in an accident or suffered some other sort of tragedy. I know I tried PM and email and every way I could think of.

    The person I'm thinking of was in school in the Caribbean somewhere.

    A few people using this forum have gone to vet school there or claimed to at any rate. It's a popular place to go and study instead of the drudgery that is American veterinary education.

    Are you sure it is Grataan who claimed to be a vet (and is a vet tech)? I have always enjoyed her posts.

    OP is sure. They were friends IRL for quite some time, going by the first post.

    You are better off not having leased your horse to her. Seriously. Not the same person that Lex is talking about, though.

    Nootka, stop typing that name! She's like Beetlejuice...she may show up!!!

    AFAIK that lunatic is still in TX somewhere. Possibly. Most likely she's scamming someone else.

    PeteyPie...glad to hear your name isn't really PeteyPie. That's my gelding's name and he's not allowed online.

    Anymore.
