*REBUTTAL Individual responds: Response to Ms Smiths Claims
Ms Clark foaled out a mare I gave her $3,500 The foal was to be given back to me.
I should have gotten a contract with this young lady, I KNEW BETTER. She has a bad rep.
Well she wiened my foal at 3 months. I begged and even offered to pay for her to wait till 6 months. The baby badly needs the nutrition and the mare also helps with teaching manners.
The picks of before wiened and after are really disheartening.
I got a baby with a swollen belly,poor muscle mass, she has a cough, and lethargic.
I have had to pay a vet now 3 times.
The vets report stated poor health, worms,deterring muscle mass, depressed attitude, not alert. He was very surprised that someone would purposely do this to a foal, but not surprised when I mentioned her name.
He encouraged me to come on this site and speak out.
My foal was also bitten by a dog while she was there and stitched up. Well I wasn't even told about this. I just discovered my foal with stitches when I went to visit.
Years ago when I first found Shannon I put my stud in training with her. After a few months apparently nothing at all was being done. I pulled him out when I went to see him and he was standing in about 3 days worth of pee and poop.
When I took him to a reputable trainer she asked "how long he was with Shannon because he was totally green broke and that was it.
So I was paying for boarding and training, but just really getting boarding only.
I lost a few thousand.
End of story I have had the foal home now for about 2 1/2 months I have cleared up all her worms, her stomach is still swollen and she still is coughing. She is very very slowly getting better but only because of the vets meds and extra nutrition we are feeding everyday.
She did pass that cough onto one of my other horses so I had to have vet treat him as well.
My plan was to sell her but there is no way anyone would buy her in this condition so its going to be a while to get her where she should be nutritional wise. I also am disappointed because she is was and is lacking basic manners that the mare usually always teaches there baby.
These are al very well documented basic care for mare and foal. Im not in the horse business but plenty of friends are very high up in breeding and raising high quality horses and I have NEVER seen this lack of knowledge in basic care before.
One last thing one of Shannons old close friend told me long ago that she wouldn't keep a goat at her ranch. Well I was warned but didn't think it would really be that bad. I was wrong. If I had a contract I could have avoided this or taken her to small claims.
Ms. Clark is also not a lisenced or insured operation.
