Personally I would not buy a horse from Marquee as she is known to sell horses with health issue (kissing spine was one we dealt with, horse had to retire). What happened to her daughter is tragic yet could have been prevented (little girl running around with a giant ball right behind horses' rear ends, it is about education of our kids what NOT to do around horses). The way she raised significant amount of funds right after the tragedy, bought brand new truck/trailer and $$ GP horse cannot be disputed, I guess each to their own.
I’m not sure who you think you are, but you are woefully incorrect with your assumptions.
Let’s start easy…
It’s your job as a potential buyer to make sure the horse you’re buying vets to your standards—not x-raying a horse’s back is the buyer’s fault. The kissing spines, regardless of when they occurred, are your responsibility to find if it was not clinical beforehand. Kissing spines can flare up after not being an issue for years—the sellers are not always to blame. I see time after time horses leave the program (not just exercise but turnout and feed as well) that works for them and the new owners can’t imagine why the new grain and being ridden incorrectly don’t work for it. There is no one to blame but the new program and management. Some horses can take it, others cannot—especially those prone to kissing spines.
Now for the real reason I’m here…
No one gets to decide on the story about what happened, the truth is between Marquee and a higher power. Tragedies happen every day, and not once has it been fair to make up stories about anyone affected.
And about the “new things” she got from the money raised on go fund me…let me know when you can get a new truck, trailer, and GP horse, AS WELL AS PAY FOR A MEMORIAL SERVICE AND ARRANGEMENTS FOR HER DAUGHTER FOR $40k…
Marquee has been nothing but a blessing to those that know her well.
Shame on you and all of you hiding behind your screens.
I wish you would show your face instead of being a coward on this site.
