SEARCHING FOR HORSE Ed`s Annjewleek, Near Nowthen, MN, 00000NetPosse Report ID # : 1139 (1164)
Description : Mare was sold at Pine City, MN auction and purchased by horse trader and shipped east where buyers were interested in her breeding. Horse trader will not tell me where this mare was shipped. Anj was sold the summer of 2008. Her new home was not far away. A lady who lives on a horse farm/ranch in Princeton, MN. Anj has really good ground manners and was going to be used to help teach kids grooming, hoof cleaning, leading, etc. The woman rode her briefly here and thought she went ok, but seemed a little sour. Which I had already told her so. She seemed patient with Anj which is what Anj needed. They came to pick her up. She did not want to load in the trailer for them. One gal got out a rope to hit her with to help get her in. Before she could, I stepped in and loaded Anj for them with a little coaxing. (Anj does have a very strong will and does not cooperate if you try to use brute force.) A year goes by and her new owner tries to get Anj to ride calmly. She goes to a trainer. Still can only ride her with a whip and spur. (I never used a whip and spur to ride her.) I don't know what else happened. I was not there and am trying to not form assumptions. Summer of 2009. New owner decides to dump Anj at the Pine City, MN sale. Gets $380 for her. Tells the guy she is a meat head and you can't do anything with her. She bucked, was hard to catch and more. New owner, a horse trader, can't load her at the sale. Does get her home finally and in a stall. He told me she was very difficult to catch and handle and CHARGES. She is dangerous! She was not a dangerous horse the day she left my yard. Her horse trader buyer would not tell me anything. Not even the state where she went just that she was shipped east because he had buyers interested in her breeding. Anj was my alpha mare but she respected people as the boss. She LIKED people. She liked getting treats. She liked being brushed. She stood for the farrier and even lifted her hooves up for him. Never flinched when the vet came to give shots. (Didn't care much for deworming though, but a lot of horses are silly that way.) She used to be difficult to catch. But I broke her of that by installing a strong "whoa" button. She listened to me. If you have seen her or have any information that may help me find out where she is or what may have happened to her. Please let me know. I know it's a needle in a haystack and I may never find out much less see her again. But at least I know I tried. She's a nice girl. Not perfect by any means, but a nice girl.
