    I agree with the observation that a large part of the problem is that he does not always plan ahead or keep you informed as he should. If you cannot move horse(s) to a full-care barn where you do not...

    I had good luck healing sores over bony hip bones by using large non-stick Telfa or similar pad, self-adhesive kind. You could also use a sensitive skin type of tape to help anchor it for good...

    That is an example of both 'parenting fail' and lack of horsemanship, that such a small child was doing anything at all with and near a large, unhaltered/unheld or tied horse.

    I hope you and your friend completely inspected that trailer later. There may have been a very good reason for the reluctance, like a wasp nest in there, or some wild animal having been in it and...

    FWIW I know a horse that has had a permanent trach for several years now, so it certainly is possible to have, but it requires A COMPETENT VET to establish it.

    I am so sorry to read this sad news. Cyber hugs to you.

    Oh no. Damn! I am so sorry. Condolences and cyber-hugs to you, and I certainly hope the Vet does not expect any payment for 2 botched outcomes in a row.
    Edited to add, I just read that of the...

    Echoing this, big time! I would not spend any more time with such assholes, for any reason, and certainly would not be engaged to someone who thinks that kind of behavior is OK.

    Instead of dithering about, wondering whether you need to test or not for a PSSM or similar, just get a fat supplement such as Purina Amplify, Nutrena Empower Boost or even liberal helping of a...

    I only see anything unusual with the right hind. That could be an injury, IMO because it is only a little bit puffy, and not really dropped. Did you perhaps inadvertently post the wrong picture?

    The things I would like to say and type surely would involve a great many cuss words and likely would be deleted by a Moderator. Instead I will only say that this is heartbreaking and so horrifying.

    why not have a cardio-thoracic surgeon put in some stabilizing wires the way they do for (deliberate) sternotomy related to heart surgery?

    Huh?! You even have to ask? I would have stopped the Vet the very first time he 'wrenched' the critter's back and said STOP. I then would say goodbye. You are long overdue for a more competent Vet. ...

    This might be useful, but please spell it You're not Your.
    Also, if you have not already notified the police about the trespass and disturbing your property, contact them right away.

    Coanteen, that is an interesting possibility. I kind of feel sorry for the BO, apparently in very poor health, and is being left in the lurch by 'the hired help'.

    Good luck and keep us posted! Maybe you can find a new home for him on your own, word of mouth etc, friend of a friend network, ahead of time.

    Just freaking ADOPT him yourself. Once he is 'your' dog you can proceed to pamper him as he deserves.

    I agree, get the Appy. You could probably teach him to lead just by, when you go get him, have a short session in which someone is leading the mare, and you the foal. Introduce the concept of whoa...

    You did not over-react. Get out of there even sooner, if you can. That place would just terrify me.

    Sell on eBay and accept payment through PayPal. That really is safer.
