    Even if that is true. A responsible caretaker would of made sure the horse got help regardless. The pictures and necropsy RMHP have recently posted say it all.

    What's with the swollen right hind? Looks chronic with the muscle wasting up above and the extreme angle to the left hind pastern/fetlock. Hhhhmmmmm....

    According to the PM, she is not blind and has never been blind so I must have her confused with someone else then. So what's going on with that right hind then?

    Among the many other things wrong with this, I feel terribly for the legit Cleveland Bay people. They have a rare breed as it is, they have some misperceptions to overcome.

    And now, when people who're horse shopping (or even just breed curious) google "Cleveland Bay" "horse for sale", they'll find this ad with this poor little unbroken and unhappy filly as an example. And for a whopping $300.

    It adds another level of sad. Sub-basement sad.

    Funny how her temperament was a 2/10 back then and is, apparently, an 8/10 now. ;-) And her birth date changed, too. Definitely the same little horse, though.

    She also shrunk two inches from the Sold ad to the more recent one.

    It's difficult to accurately measure a horse that you can't catch.
