    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.

    That is interesting, jennywho, and would make sense if it is a 'tipping point' type of problem wherein, once tissue breakdown has gotten to a certain point that catabolism was happening, perhaps the...

    I am so sorry. You did the right thing, though, and I am sure he is galloping around heaven now.

    I had one, onset of symptoms came on quite gradually, first noted in 2004. Disease was full-blown by 2006. She was euth'd March 2007. My only regret is I waited too long to put her down, but the Vet...

    I had my late mare trained to 'Meet me at the gate!' said in a happy way. She did, and every time she got praise, scritches and happy vibes from the human. Every once in awhile a snack, but usually...

    If someone is going to stand on the horse, it should be either in the saddle area, or as is sometimes done by vaulters, on the horses rump. That bozo is standing right over the weakest part of the...

    I agree with the comments about how it is easier to do the things you are unwilling to consider doing, than to deal with a foundered horse. If you do not change things, you will have a foundered...
