And here’s some drama coming out of Memphis, from Susanna:

vicky miller sold my horse and did not pay (pulaski)

vicky miller sold 5 horses for me and did not pay me. we were supposed to split the sale price. she is illegal in this country and owes the IRS. I wish I could do something about this but I do not have the funds to do so.
Beware of vicky miller and adam grayson. He is harbouring an illegal alien.
she seemed so professional, she totally ripped me off and I am a family member. Please if you give her your horse to sell, GET A CONTRACT!!!!!!!
THEY TOTALLY STOLE FROM ME AND MY CHILDREN AND I TRUSTED HER BECAUSE SHE IS FAMILY. IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILY YOU ARE SCREWED, SO SORRY FOR YOU UNLESS YOU READ THIS.
IN ALL HOESTY….
VICKY MILLERS SISTER……

Hoo boy, that’s going to be a fun Thanksgiving dinner! Here’s one from Cait: “Seems legit!”

From Catherine: “If you can pull its tail and it won’t kick, must be 4-H safe.”

I have a beautiful chestnut for sale. Very broke, neck reins, backs. very well behaved mare. She would make a great 4H horse. She rides with a bit or hackemore or just a halter and lead rope. She a 10 yr old and about 14″3 hands. She trailers great. Shes great with her feet. Great with the vet. Very nice mare. Rides western and english. Shed very quiet great on trails and in an areana. If ur looking for an outstanding and beautiful horse that will do what ever u want then shes the one.

Bear is an outstanding gelding but that’s his one flaw that he is for sale is I just really like mares more he just sits and is not being used he packs jumps trails barrels you point and say here we go his attitude is how fast and how far do you wanna go he’s a great hand and just like a to work but here he just is spoiled and sits and eats…. Pictures videos and any questions feel free to ask am open to part trades or trades what we really r looking for is a quarter pony as part trade saddles tack money is key hay whatever even a trailer as full trade just throw it at me guns even maybe litteraly throw it out there he just need a a job and a home he is 14.3 and ten years old picture of jumping the guy that rode him don’t jump horses he was just my picture dummy sorry!!
