OOOOH Now I'm Annoyed
OK so up here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest we have a couple of fine establishments that we like to call "auction houses". As if THEY alone are not a big enough pain in our horse loving asses. We have THESE PEOPLE! The Horse Auction Threateners!!! They're by far a very DUMB group of people. You will find these people on Craigslist ALL the fucking time a couple days before an auction. Example??? Here's one!!! http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/grd/899377056.html They "must" sell this horse before Sunday or *gasp* it's going to the auction! You really think that threatening to take your horse will sell it any faster? You know, I frequent the auction regularly as do A LOT of people I know and that I am friends with, and we are all there with pretty much the same thoughts too... "DAMN IT I need to win the LOTTO so I can save all these poor horses!!!" Ugh, the truth is as we all know that sometimes that's just not possible. So HOW DARE these people place an ad THREATENING to take their horse to the auction so we'll hurry up and rescue it before it goes to that awful place! Oh yes but first you're going to try and charge $2,000 for a FUCKING GRADE HORSE because some irresponsible assclown lost the papers. Some people have fucking balls! Just because it ONCE had papers as you are "claiming" does not mean jack. Horse sellers are notorious LIARS!!! I know for a FACT that a lot of us support different rescue groups like S.A.F.E and rejoice when dumb bitches get thrown in jail for horse abuse like Jean Elledge, but the sad truth is that we can't get to them all. Especially in this economy, people are having a hard time GIVING horses away. Of course these "Auction Threateners" also coincide with another group I absolutely can NOT STAND!!! The "I have a twenty-fucking-four year old horse, that I've used and abused and now that it's really old I don't want to take care of it so I'll just DUMP it off on someone else" Example http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/grd/898942917.html You know, I bet that poor old mare or gelding probably gave you it's ALL. Let you booger eating kids climb and play all over him. Took you to your first show, trail ride. Gave you your first blue ribbon, and now, because it's too OLD and "useless" you want to dump it off??? OOOOOH I LOATHE YOU!!! You should never be able to own another horse if that's how you treat them... Use 'em til they're useless huh?!?! NOW believe me, we all know that there are some circumstances in which we have no control over that may force us to part with our beloved pals, and if I've posted your ad and you're one of the "exceptions" I apologize. BUT, for those fine people who are just A-holes!! You can Kiss our A$$!!
