Blog - Case of the Month
Proving again that the truth is stranger than fiction...
I’ll be picking out a specific case out of the hundreds I’ve worked on in the past years and give you a brief rendition of the facts and outcome. And, I may cover pertinent equine related topics.

Taking advantage of situations that have occurred to others may lead you to say things to yourself like, “Boy I’m glad that didn’t happen to me!” Anyway, for sheer entertainment value, you’ll like them.

After reading the Blog, please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or comments. Although I will not be taking comments on this blog, your feedback is welcomed. Archived Blogs available at this link.

NAES BLOG - February 2018...


This time of year Scottsdale, Arizona is home to the annual All-Arabian Horse show. I’ve been involved with the Arabian Horse Association for many years as well as numerous other all-breed associations. Actually, I’ve loved every horse I ever met.

So many horse enthusiasts seem to be focused exclusively on one breed or another to the exclusion of all others. I remember as a kid I just enjoyed every horse breed and did everything to stay at the barn where I took lessons, and then hide at the time when my mom stopped by to pick me up. Yes, I was a true horse nut, I loved every horse GOD made.

Now, in my current job, I’ve been involved with over 30 different breeds and disciplines, and I sure can see why every horse owner loves their specific horse. Even as long as I’ve been around horses, each and every horse is special to me and I try to explain in each appraisal just why the subject horse is worth what I say he or she is.

When I do each appraisal, I try and envision myself actually owning the horse in question. I try and remember just why this particular horse is so special to the owner, and for the most part it works out just fine.

The cases that get me to wondering are those divorce cases where kids are involved, because I remember clearly how important my horse was to me. That’s when the appraisal business gets tough, especially recalling how important my horse was to me.

The last thing I need to point out is that doing what I do is absolutely the very best job a “horse nut kid” like me could ever have.

Tip of the month

February 2018
Always remember to stay with your horse if he’s tied up anywhere close, since you are the one responsible for each and everything he does.

I just got done with the case of a horse tied to a trailer who got loose and caused the death of an innocent motorist; very sad indeed.
