I would be pretty busy taking care of this local woman and her operation....here is her latest Craigslist offering: http://anchorage.craigslist.org/grd/524920707.html
In fact, I bet I would be in a sizable crowd, chasing her down the highway to say, some other country. This woman has a lengthy history....just about any horror story has occured you can imagine with horses in her "care". Deaths from disease, accident, colics, starvation, etc, have occured. She has even left corpses strung up to a tree in the yard for the mangy hounds to eat.
She deals in so many, and on payment no less, that I only know of *one* person (out of hundreds) who did not get ripped off. Every horse is outrageously overpriced and they nearly all have a physical limitation, if not a downright dangerous one under saddle or for handling. You will never get the "papers" unless you pay full price up front, or an extra $500 after the contract i s paid. She's taken recreational equipment and other stuff in trade. There's never enough feed there and come early spring, most will be CS4 at best. The local AC has a file on her about three inches thick, yet she seldom gets cited by staying just barely within the boundaries of minimal care. Yet she is quick to sue anyone else, to get a judgment on debt.
A number of years ago, she "found the Lord" and got remarried. This seems to have helped her with her horse dealings as she is able to keep the doors open year round. It has not, however, kept her from being the worst example of a horse trader we have in state. to wit: RIDING THE TWO YEAR OLD ALL SUMMER. See the picture with the smiling rider? WTF is wrong with that broad? Everyone with any horse sense knows you do not ride a baby! Grrr!
I have personally seen foals so ill they were near death. Carcasses. No hay on premises. No water for all horses. Numerous new scars from ill fitting equipment. Numerous untreated injuries from squabbles in tiny, trash strewn paddocks. She leaves a trail of used up and broken down horses across the area....once she has used them up in her trail riding operation, she then sells them off to suckers, who pay double to triple what they are really worth. She is able to do this because she takes payments.
And to top it off, she breeds. Anything with a uterus it seems. I have no idea what she has for a stallion these days, but it's sure to be fugly along with all her stock. Anything above average that appears there, came from somewhere else.
I have plenty of coal tar-a whole five gallons of it at work....only two feather pillows though :(
