When did you buy him?

oh i know lol, i just wish the barn owner would stop expecting him to be perfect lol. im so frustrated and confused with this decision. i really like where im at, besides a few things, but i have to figure out if they are things i can work with. i bought him in november, and all he had done was haltering. now he is learning voice commands, lounges, trailers, learning his feet, ect. thanks for your advice :)

i didnt mean to come across hasty, im just severely overwhelmed by my surroundings...

I can understand the frustration of the BO -BUT- they have handled your situation VERY unprofessionally thats more than enough to consider leaving. There is nothing worst than going to go spend time with your horse but having to dread running into management.

I would leave.

free_sprtd your BO experience caught my eye & prompted me to sign on to this forum. I put up with similar circumstances with my first horse a # of years ago. I still feel guilty, sad, angry, whatever about it. No horse deserves kicks like that. It's abusive. What do they do when you are not around? I have learned over time, you pay to have you horse taken care of as you would. Problems may come up but discussion can resolve them. Move on.....

i would most definately try to move asap because like this may never happen but she felt uneasy about the place where she boarded becase she saw the BO and her son beat a few of the other boarders horses but had to go away for a week and had no time to find another place. being 15 she really couldn't stay home so she called every day and the BO said the horse was fine and happy. then when she got back she found out that the horse was stolen one day after she left. they started to try and track the horse down and then when they were about a day behind getting the horse the people paniked and sent her horse to the slaughter house.and being a healthy horse she was sent to the front and the worst thing was they said she ,a 15 yr old, could come and identify the hide and they would pay her the meat price. that article killed me when i read it.

I can't even imagine going thru this with any of my horses. Poor kid.
