Unfortunately my husband and I purchased a horse from Joyce at Rolling Hills Farm. We have never owned a horse before, therefore we really did not know much about buying a horse. Joyce was really nice, however when we got home we learned the horse was wearing egg-bar shoes... Which I quickly learned was not good. When I called Joyce to question her about it she simply said, ""oh, that is how she came to us and we have just continued to shoe her that way""... Well I have only been around horses a few months now and seem to know much more than she did. After multiple people telling me the horse is lame, we had her x-rayed, sure enough she has bilateral navicular.The horse is really useless at this point.When I called to tell her about it she suggested we could breed her. We bought her for our 8 year old to barrel race. I am sure not into breeding. Bottom line... she is not willing to make the deal good, she is unwilling to admit any wrong doing. She simply lied to us and now we are stuck with a pasture ornament. If she really didn't know, you don't want to buy from anyone that ill informed, if she did know, you don't want to buy from someone who is dishonest... With all that said... I would never purchase anything from Rolling Hills Farm again and I suggest you don't either.
