bjw paints Wander Horse Carriage Co. Sold me a Broodmare, said all paperwork was in order…NOT!!! Alto, Texas – Found a really nice mare for my stallion, the bloodlines I like & cross well with my boy. She is an Palomino mare which was a plus. She looked thin in the photos but after asking the owner about it, she said the mare ‘was not thin, maybe 100 lbs under’. After MANY emails & phone conversations with Betsy, I felt this could be cured with getting her teeth done & some grocery’s. Ireally wanted this gal so I paid-in-full by paypal. The following Monday we were there to pick up the mare around 9am. O M G..!!!!! I was shocked to see this poor mare, skin over bones, stuff coming from her eyes, stuff oozing from her vaginal area & her stool was like a cow patty but black…! I wanted to just leave her there but I felt so darn bad for the mare, I haltered her & led her to the trailer. She was stumbling & walking wobbly like. We did try to load her…(mind you, I think ALL paperwork was in order). Upon trying to load this mare she refused & no matter what we did, she was not going to load. At one point she reared up & her back legs gave out on her…she did not loose her footing or balance, her legs gave out..! SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH HER, I told my husband..! She wouldn’t even get up without pressure..! I asked the husband a few questions & he offered info. that she might not have been happy hearing him tell, like “I don’t remember the last time we gave shots, got testing for coggins, wormings…etc”. They got wormed when they could catch em’ or could afford it. No tests because the mares were brought there from UT or OR (where ever they are from) & never left the ranch…? I said she needed a coggins but was told that if she was sold within the state she didn’t need a coggins..! If I wanted one, it would be at my expense..! WRONG…! I then asked the owners husband, (Betsy was not there..???) for my money back. He said he would have to call her & went into the house. 30 min. later he was still in there, so I put the mare back into her pen, petted her for awhile, went back to trailer, closed it up, sat in truck for about another 15 min. & then left. Never seeing the husband again. I think it was like 11am or after..! Betsy never called me once all day, so when I got home 7hrs. later, I called her asking her to refund back to pay pal. Oh my….not the thing to ask..! She said “You bought this mare, come get her”. That she was going to charge me $8.00 a day till I came back to get her”. The truth be known…? I really don’t think the mare could have made the trip, to far & way too hot..! I have since truned them into the TAHC. & the humane society. I guess she will be able to keep my money unless I get an atty. but maybe will have to test all her horses, maybe see what is wrong with that poor mare, if she is still alive. BEWARE…..! Betsy is wicked when she is caught in the wrong..!
