    ^^This.^^ Great way to get information to those who should have it, without saying a word. This is the upside of the horse industry grapevine; everyone will know that the horse is lame, NOT because...

    Yeah, except horse is injured now. :(

    Again, I am stunned by the OP's generosity. I need to take "nice" lessons from her.

    And therein lies the rub. Child's trainer CONFIRMED with SHOW MANAGEMENT that mule WAS allowed. I wonder why you have such trouble understanding that.



    Child DID follow the rules, or she...

    One perhaps would not be so quick to assume, had the mule placed badly or not at all. 'Tis the changing of a CONFIRMED RULE AFTER THE FACT that has everyone up in arms. ;)

    Thanks. I introduced the bigger tom to the household VERY slowly. He was in a crate off and on for two months, while the other big tom got used to him. We have a jumbo dog crate, big enough for...

    Thanks, y'all, for your input. All good ideas. Keep them coming, please.

    This would be my concern, also. To someone like this, your lack of action on minor infractions of your agreement is tacit permission to continue. Or, worse, escalate. And without experienced eyes...

    And the farm should ACKNOWLEDGE their initial "mistake" ( :rolleyes: ) and PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE to the wronged party.

    You're not helping your cause here, man. Quit while you're behind. :cool:

    ^^This.^^^

    This beeoytch had better leave Texas and change her name. Her working life is done here.
  12. Adding new puppy into already pet populated house.

    So we lost my husband's heart dog about eight years ago. She was a blue merle Aussie who quite simply stole his heart and took a chunk of it with her when she died.
    We currently have two large...

    Unless you have an employment contract, the above situation would be impossible. Apples and oranges. In the OP's case, she's paying for a service. In your scenario, you're being paid to render a...

    I agree with ^^this^^. Just up and go. Do it quietly and don't talk about Trainer unless asked; and when asked, be charmingly evasive, using phrases like, "I learned a lot", followed by another big...

    We are staying off the strip, at Staybridge Suites on Dean Martin Road (no, I'm not kidding). We'll drive to T & M, and can pick up those needing rides if the shuttles are dicey.

    Any BO who PURPOSELY effs up the footing and makes sand dunes in his arena to piss off the boarders is a nutbag. I can certainly understand why this facility isn't full. And if he keeps up with...

    AmiBlue, I wouldn't worry about the naysayers. They haven't any more information or insight into what happened than you do, since you were there and they weren't. I think the PO did you a huge...

    I don't get the vitriol towards the OP. Last I heard, "overly enthusiastic" wasn't grounds for breaking what was at th VERY least a tentative deal.

    And I agree with those who say the PO SHOULD...
