    As hard as it is to witness what is going on, you have to remember.

    1. It is her money to do with as she pleases.

    2. These are her children / grandchildren, you are not, even though she has...

    I agree with you. I guess it evolved because people will pay extra, so they charge extra. I see the same evolution in the boarding barns of today. Used to be they provided hay, shavings and once a...
  3. I don't think I even want to go there. Everyday,...

    I don't think I even want to go there. Everyday, morning and evening I feed the goats, cow and chickens before I even make it to the horses and by then they are pretty steamed.
  4. Please don't take this the wrong way. If your...

    Please don't take this the wrong way. If your budget is already stretched , can you even afford retirement board on a horse who could easily live another 10 years? Who is already mildly unsound and...
  5. There might be. I don't use the type of language...

    There might be. I don't use the type of language the OP does in her first post, so I find it almost offensive that she would speak to anything in that way. She means it endearingly, but I can't...

    My 3 kids come up with all kinds of different names for our critters. My oldest son is especially good at it. His favorite for my horse ( an easy keeper) was " fat back". Our cat who is named...

    I can get the term " hoover". The other endearments? No.

    Once they start peeing " outside the box" I doubt you will stop it. You can thoroughly clean the area but they still know where they have gone. Having multiple cats makes it so much more difficult. ...

    This sheds a different light on it, but I would still look elsewhere for a pony. I think they should just keep the pony, because I don't think anyone else is good enough to have it.

    No your not . After slogging through 33 pages I can honestly say I only want to know who it is so I can avoid her like the plague if I am ever in the market for a free lease pony.

    What do you do with him after his workout? Does he have a large area to live in or is he in a stall or small turnout area? I had a horse who I rode hard most every day and the footing was hard too,...

    My run in was very wide and about 14 deep. That allowed the boss mare to choose her spot and the other 2 horses had plenty of space left to get under cover. The one thing is that no matter how deep...

    I would be more concerned about my trailer being stolen from where it is parked when not in use. I have known people who have had this happen. Stealing a trailer hooked to the tow vehicle would...

    never had a photo on my coggins. As the owner of leopard type appaloosas my vets just put dots everywhere.

    When you offer your pony as free to someone and have all that conversation back and forth for a month and lead them to believe that you are seriously considering them as the new care givers, it makes...

    I have to admit that I couldn't watch the whole video because my internet speed is too slow for that to happen. If you have ever been unlucky enough to ride a horse who pulls on your arms like a...

    I never minded when my " boyfriend at the time" ( now husband ) came to the barn to visit me. He had plenty of people he was friends with to keep him busy if I wasn't done riding yet. It makes a...

    As long as you continue to talk things out you will be fine. My husband of 23+ years has never been a horse person. He indulges me because he knows how much they mean to me. My response to that is...

    I hate to admit it ,but this made me laugh. It was an accident and you are doing all you can to find the cat. Just tell her what happened and take whatever comes your way. I seriously doubt she...

    I hope that she can keep her hands off your horses and tack after the lease has been terminated. I would be worried about that.

    I don't think you should feel you have to tip, but if you want to, I am sure he wouldn't be offended! A twenty in a card telling him how much you appreciate his care of your boy would be fine.

    This was my thought after reading your OP. I don't think it means that you should get rid of him or that the relationship won't work. He is your boyfriend, not your husband and that means your time...

    If your pasture has a good stand of grass now you should be able to at least cut down on hay use during the grazing season. We were up North and had very sandy soil. We let the grass get pretty long...

    I don't agree with her at all. Any obese horses I have had ( or known) just get fed too much for what they actually do. None of them had any stress what so ever.

    When calories given were reduced...
