    This mare and 2 mo. old foal were confiscated from a BNT who had her on a free lease. The mare left my farm 7 months before these pics were taken -- big, robust (and just weaned from a 7 month old).

    The BNT's name shall remain nameless for the moment, until the mare/foal are out of rehab and are able to travel back here to Virginia.

    This mare was put in the MMB last year for both the GOV and RPSI and was a HB champion.

    She was found as "bones", severely dehydrated. Clearly starved -- she gave her body away to keep her 2 mo. old going. It makes me sick and so angry... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_mad.gif

    Thank God a caring person, stuck there neck out and called my farm and alerted us.

    The link doesn't work.

    I'm really sorry about your mare. I'd love to know who the trainer is though.

    Broodmares have a way of disapearing. Always know where they are.

    Yeah I am going to be snarky here but this has seemed to be a trend when people lease out their horses they end up getting starved. Do you not check up on your horses when they are leased out? You still own them so why would you not? I would be checking up on my horses if they were leased out.

    This mare was out of state with one of "the best" -- who kept in constant touch about how well the mare was doing.

    This person is very well known, with a stellar reputation (or so it seemed), that has many of us absolutely stunned.

    This mare does not belong to me, but I have her 1st two foals (by my stallions). She just had her third with the new lessor.

    This mare wasn't just turned over to anybody -- but it goes to show even BNT's can have a dark side that is kept quiet.

    I don't know why I can't get the pics up, but I'll try again.

    sid - You have an email.

    While I agree that I would check up on my horses as well, I know for myself personally it's hard to see my broodmare who's in another state also. ESPECIALLY with these gas prices! And one would think a BNT would be trustworthy enough. I know it costs me $300 to see my mare once every 2-3 months, but I also LOVE the woman she is with (another COTH'r) and enjoy just visiting in general. Plus we show hop together when I'm down, so it makes it like a mini vacation. --- Unfortunately, when your hundreds of miles away and have lots of obligations otherwise it may be hard in some cases to be able to do that.

    I'm VERY sorry.

    Since you are a premium member, you can post a pic by saving the picture on your hard drive and just browse arter you click on "Add Attachment." Click on that file then just type in a file description.

    My guess is right now you are trying to link to a web page when using the "Add Attachment" feature and that is why it is not working. If you want to link to a web page that has the pic, you need to use the "URL" button above your post.

    A friend who also has copies said she'd do it, thanks so much for offering.

    I'll send "before" pics later.

    Unfortunately you just can't fo on trust when your horses are involved.

    A good number of years ago we sent two of our mares to a very well-known breeder who always gets accolades on this list. I was told the farrier would be their barn the next day and I left instructions to have shoes pulled and both mares trimmed. It never happened. The owner had an emergency in another state and our mares were thrown out in a rocky paddock. When we picked them up a few weeks later they had both lost weight, had thrown most of their shoes and had torn up feet, and they were both infected (we had pulled clean cultures right before sending them off).

    Another time we sent our mares off to be bred (with foals at their side) one of the foals suffered a broken shoulder and eventually had to be put down. Again, a farm with a supposedly stellar reputation in PA. We were told that they found the foal like that when they went in to feed but given the fact that the mare was in such poor shape that I didn't even recognize her I've often wondered....

    So now we have our own stallion and keep our mares at home.

    Thank goodness for the friend who called you. Hope your mare and foal are OK.

    sid -- yes, we do seem to have a recurring problem when people try to post pictures with Kodak EasyShare ... as someone else said, if you save them to your drive in a different place (on the desktop, in 'my pictures', anyplace but that Kodak folder) and then use the 'add attachment' button, they should post correctly.

    That is absolutely disgusting!!! The BNT needs to be exposed!!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_mad.gif or shot!!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_mad.gif There is no reason in the world why any mare should ever be in that terrible condition!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif I hope you can bring her back slowly and with a vets care. She looks like she was such beautiful mare! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif

    OMG, those pictures bring tears to my eyes! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif

    How could someone do this to a horse, especially a mom and baby? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_mad.gif

    We lease my dtr's equitation horse out, and luckiy he lives only 15 minutes from my dtr's college. For 2006, I will be sure to place him where we can still keep an eye on him.

    Wow. unbelieveable...... http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/cry.gif
