I adopted a horse through this rescue 2 years ago. From the time Mrs. Cain came to visit she had something negative to say about everything. The fence was not good enough (although horses and cattle have been on that property for 20 years). There was no sand in the round pin (when we visited her \\\"rescue\\\" she had a round pin without sand). She had no contract to sign at the time she brought the horse to me and no contract to sign when we visited her place and put a deposit down on the horse. She left the horse with me and asked that the fence be fixed to her expectations. Agreed to do that and at the time the weather was 100 degrees for weeks. I am not going to or ask anyone to do fence work that is not an emergency in that heat. Once fence was fixed she came out to look but wanted to look at the other part of our property again. We told her no, nothing had changed and she was only concerned about the fence. She told us that the only option is to take the horse back. Just kind of laughed at her and asked her to leave and if she wants the horse back she will have to take us to court. Well she did, after a $1, 000 attorney bill we told her to come get the horse if she gave my money back. She stated she could only give me $200. I laughed at that as I paid $750 for the horse and have had her for over a year at that point. Asking around to other horse people in the area I have found out we are not the first people she had done this to. We have been in contact with another local horse rescue and they state that Shooting Star is a bad place. The owner Mrs. Careen Cain is in the business for money and she horse swaps or horse trades. I have had this horse going on 2 years now and have grown very fond of her. She is now suing me for the horse back. My attorney bill is already at $1, 000 (money that I would prefer spending on my horses) but I feel I need to fight for myself and the other people that she has done this to and she will continue to do this until she is stopped.
