Carol Rose vs. Aaron Ranch Update

The ongoing dispute between Carol Rose and Aaron Ranch regarding the ownership of 10 horses has been settled. Since last fall, Rose and Aaron Ranch have disputed the ownership of several horses purchased by Aaron Ranch as the high bidder at the August 2013 Carol Rose Quarter Horses Dispersal Sale.

The issue was settled out of court prior to a July 24 hearing with Gainesville, Texas, 235th District Court Judge Janelle Haverkamp. One of Aaron Ranch’s attorneys, Don Gordon, commented after the session adjourned, “All of the disputes between Aaron Ranch and Ms. Rose as to the 10 horses that were the subject of the injunction, and Shiners Lena Doc, have been settled. Aaron Ranch asserts no more claim to those animals.”

Court records indicate Aaron Ranch and its attorneys had claimed that they agreed to pay for the horses in two installments after the sale. Rose and her attorneys argued that they had not agreed to those terms, and instead expected the total sum to be paid in full before the horses would be turned over to Aaron Ranch.

The 10 horses in question, and now owned by Rose, are: Sushi Boss, Shiners Miss Lena, Shiney Sparklette, Yurs N Mine, Reys A Shine, Sparkling In Town, Strawberry Hi Lights, Alotta Shiney, Shiners In Tinsel Town and Dotted Lights.
