If anyone is interested in knowing the backstory for this, you can check my other Off Course thread.
Lady we are leasing from hit the deadline our lawyer gave her to pick up horses yesterday. She came and picked two of the three up...
And left a completely random horse. Who "had an accident in the trailer" and completely de-gloved and filleted his leg and is hopping around on three legs.
Get a call from friend "Where the hell did this horse come from?" Call owner, she says "oh he has a cut, I'm going to get food for them." She didn't think he needed a vet at all.
WTF??? You just decide for yourself that you're boarding the new horse at our backyard barn, drop off a horse without even mentioning it to anyone, ON THE DAY ALL HORSES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE GONE??! And the muscle thats hanging off his leg, that'll def be ok with just some Blu Kote.
Needless to say we spent all night out with animal control, the Sheriff, and an emergency vet.
Will be posting this lady's information in a public service announcement soon as well as ripoffreport. I know she doesn't own that horse, I shudder to think of the story she told it's owner, and I bet they have no clue what happened to him. Apparently she got it in a lease/care-trade for our two.
ACK!! I've leased in the past and it's gone decently for me but I usually lease from the barn I am riding at. Private leases just seem to turn into horrid affairs worthy of popcorn and wine.
Did they take psyco toddler eater or is he the one you got left with? Can't wait for the update on this to see if the lady actually came back with food.

My favorite parts were when AC asked her what the horses name is, and she said "I think Cherokee? But I could br wrong" and when she said the reason they couldn't go to the place she was planning to board them was bc the "trailer driver got a DUI on the way over here"
You know, I wasn't too sympathetic the last time you posted, but this is just crazy and a whole bunch of other bad words. She left you with a seriously injured horse? That she couldn't remember the name of and whose owner probably has no clue that this has happened?
That poor excuse for a human being should be horsewhipped. Though I do admit that the trailer driver getting a DUI on the way over is an interestingly different excuse for transportation problems. I wonder if you'll be able to find the real owner of the injured horse, and maybe that person will help with this.
