    I'm so sorry!!!! I hope the pony is not in poor health , but since she looks so fancy do you think they could have went ahead and sold her????

    The fact she is so fancy scares me into thinking she's long gone.

    Unless it's a total knothead and stupid to boot or unsound-this one would be real saleable.

    With those markings on her legs though? Easy to pick out.

    I see you already did the certified letter...if you got the reciept copy where it was signed for or the letter returned it's time to go to the police.

    NOW.

    Question

    Perhaps a posting on NetPosse would be appropriate?

    Best of luck with this. She's a gorgeous pony, and findeight is right - very saleable.

    Great idea about NetPosse.

    In the MS area and surrounding states, are you aware of any regional horse boards? Here we have Fla Horse and it's a great way to locate specific trainers in the state.

    I can't imagine how worried you must be about your gorgeous pony. Please keep us posted. I'm crossing my fingers and praying you get her back safe and sound.

    Sorry to hear about your missing pony. She's stunning, BTW...and I agree with others she's probably been sold and maybe the money was pocketed?
    I'll keep my eyes open online when I "sale horse" search. The name might be different...the bloodlines not mentioned but her markings are distinctive enough. If I see anything fishy I'll PM it to you.

    I found out that the trainer said she left some ponies with Dave Pellegrini (in TN), after Devon. Does anyone know of him? Again, any info is appreciated.

    Default we should all keep a look out at pony finals

    Since Pony Finals is next week, we should all keep a lookout for the pony at the competition. The markings are unique--so should be easy to spot.

    is there a chance the pony could have qualified?

    We are going to Pony Finals and would be glad to put up flyers for you--if you send them... Send me an email brownie61@aol.com

    I would think the cost of a plane ticket and hotel would be worth it to go see the "trainer" in person.

    Dave wasn't in, but I spoke to Caroline (at his farm). She was not familiar with Diva. I left a message with the info on the pony and my name/number.

    I have been in contact with the trainer and hopefully Diva is going to come home...I still don't know where she is, or who has her, but have been told that she is in good condition. Hopefully, she'll be home soon.

    Thanks again for everyone's help and if you're in the Carolinas, keep an eye out.

    I hope you are also seeing a lawyer at this point.

    SOMEBODY is profitting from use of this nice Pony at your expense and you are entitled to compensation.

    I am NOT kidding here. You have no idea what the lease fees run on nice ones. Somebody received a lease fee or a commission or the entire sale price while somebody else is using and enjoying YOUR Pony and you are receiving NOTHING...not even credit for breeding it.

    You have some compensation coming and the return of YOUR pony that YOU bred and got NOTHING for...and still OWN.

    Get tough girlfriend. As any other business owner would do.

    Sock it to 'em.

    BTW, they could claim abandonment and non payment so excercised a mechanics lien and siezed it. That is what they will claim if they sold or leased it. Get your paperwork and receipts in order to refute that.

    Default Really??

    I'm in NC and will keep my eyes open. You may want to PM headsup on here as she is a pony broker in NC and may come across the pony.

    Fingers crossed for Diva's safe return and hope she is healthy and loved.
