    I did say so in my first post - but it was long & probably not fully read I clarified that it was a self care facility in the second. I never changed any aspect of my story - the vet had seen...

    I was going to leave this alone but the assumptions being made about me are so over the top that I had to respond. I find it somewhat hilarious that I am taken to task for making assumptions about...

    I am not a happy-unicorn-head-in-the-clouds horse owner. My daughter's horse is perfectly happy in a pasture situation. He went into it straight off a truck after a 1000-mile journey and has thrived....

    Oh, and just to clarify, the BO knew my daughter and I were caring for the horses. They did not object because the owners were not doing anything. I didn't spell that out and maybe I should have but...

    Where did I say I expected reimbursement!? I said I did not, that my only concern was the horses. I was just amazed that they didn't even offer. Yeah, they have a different way of caring for their...

    I'm not going to live and let live while I watch a pair of distressed horses rotting away in the pasture, thanks.

    The BO was informed of the horse's leg injury. They contacted the owner who told...

    I'm glad your new farrier seems to be working out. And in the end, it's probably just as well that your former farrier dropped you rather than continuing with someone who was not happy working with...

    Oh, I do agree the BO needs to take more responsibility in these cases. As for pasture board, the farm supplies hay twice a day. Any additional care is self-care. So while in my opinion, the BO needs...

    When does ignorance become abuse?

    This is long and I’m sorry but it really upset me and need to talk about it. :(

    I board at a pretty large stable. My mare is in a stall and paddock near the pasture where my daughter’s horse is...

    I've gone on two guided trail rides over the years - once on vacation with my husband who had never been on a horse, and once with my daughter who like me is an experienced rider. On both occasions,...

    Old westerns always showed stagecoaches - even when not being attacked by robbers/Indians - going all out at a gallop. Not only the most dangerous way to drive six horses, but the best way to wear...

    "Generic" and "legally sound" are very often two different things. It is not prohibitively expensive to have simple contracts drawn up and the peace of mind and potential money-saving value is well...

    I feel for you. My mare used to be like that - I'd get about 3 seconds of focus then she'd see something shiny and would be mentally gone for the day. ~sigh~

    Much as I love her, I used to actually...

    I too would worry more about the tripping and the bucking. I'm more inclined to think that the bucks may have been more a symptom of pain than of being mad she tripped. Horses don't really tend to...

    Everywhere in Vermont is super far from a city, if your idea of a city is most people's! That's a good thing in my view.
