Strain Family Horse Farm Bill Strain Dishonest, horse criminal! Internet, Internet

Wow what an experience! Never never never go to this farm if you want honesty, safety and quality! We went as a family in search for a horse for my daughter. Got there and it began immediately. They started pulling horses out. Some were pretty, some were sound but some stepped out of the stall lame, snotty noses, one even had a lump under his jaw and was oozing!!! We all know what that was. They said he got a scratch and it got infected. Great cover. Then the riding began. What a scary process and what they thought was ok for my daughter to ride was unacceptable. At the end they changed prices 3 times on us and of course the one we liked was the most expensive. We fell in the trap anyway and bought him. Shame on us. We got him home and within 2 weeks our entire barn of 11 horses were snooty nosed, not eating and high temps. They offered no help. The horse we got from them came to life about 1 week after being there and bucked 3 people off and ran away with big spooks with 2 others. Very very dangerous. We brought him back. Some of the others that were there before were still there. We entertained them and looked again. Can you imagine the prices on the ones we already saw had changed. Nothing was the same. (same gross stalls too. I don't think they clean them more then once a month. GROSS) We did pick another horse. Had a PPE done before taking him home and he passed. Got him home and the next day he was dead lame! Again shame on us for not doing a drug test. He went back and we picked another. Same vet for PPE. Got horse home and another lame one. Ran blood drug screen and imagine, positive. They denied everything and offered another xchange. So now our original horse costing 6500, 3 PPE's later and changing horses with them we now have 14000 into this process. We just wanted out but there is NO way out with them. All they offered was giving us 3500 back and we could leave. We took it as we were too afraid of what was next. Went to another local dealer and had a wonderful experience and on the first trip. I do not and will never recommend this farm to anyone!

My suggestion is to the buyer is to sue the farm for the purchase price and any vetting costs if you believe you have been defrauded. In Massachusetts the limit for small claims is $7000. You do not need a lawyer and you can present your own case. It is important that you present all documents relating to the sale as well as any drug testing and vetting results on the hearing date. When the allegation of fraud is proven in court, the terms of the contract could be nullified and you could be awarded the return of the money you lost plus the costs associated with filing the small claim. The story related above appears to me to be a likely legal victory for the buyer. Drug testing with positive results is powerful evidence in a court of law. Consumer protection laws (Chapter 93A) provide for additional money penalties (triple damages) if a business is found to act in ways that defraud the consumer. If the amount of money lost is over the small claims limit it would be wise to consult with an attorney. Many civil lawyers will provide the initial consultation for free or at a reduced rate. Contact the local Bar Association for a referral to an appropriate attorney. We in the horse community have all heard about unscrupulous sellers and it seems to me that they get away with it far too often. THEY will keep doing it until WE make them accountable!
