The spots are from ill fitting harness, I'm positive. Thanks guys! I should explain more, I think I'm giving a bad impression LOL.

I did not grant permission for them to use her. I had no idea it was happening, and I was visiting her often (Every day/ever other day) at the time. I just happened to come out one morning and oh, wow, they're untacking my horse.. Ok.. They gave me money off my board, but I told them not to do it again. I promise I didn't know this was happening, or I would have stopped it. And now that I'm thinking about it, gosh.. I'm so trusting. They have probably used her much more than that without me knowing, maybe? Ugh. IDK.

I'm trying to get pics, but my phone camera isn't working right now! And I don't have any other cameras currently (Not at my house, anyway) but I have a vet appt in a about a week.

I think I might be making it out worse than it is. She's in no obvious pain, no heat in hooves, no lameness, not underweight. Just some mud, bad hair (like 14 inch long hair in one spot, 3 inches in another..) and actually, no rubbing on her tail, surprisingly.

I'm under a lot of stress right now so I'm having a hard time trying to learn about hooves/anything really. I've cut out a lot of the "bad" in my life this week, still adjusting though. Then I plan on hitting the books, maybe getting some hands on experience. It's not that I don't want to learn -- I'm just incapable right now.

Also, should mention. Obviously, she won't be going back there ever LOL. If I KNEW anything was going on, I would have taken her out right away. I told them not to use her in the fields again, and I trust they wouldn't. I was probably wrong.

I'm not going to talk to them about this because if they lent her out, they wouldn't tell me. The whole "Amish are so honest" thing is NOT true LOL. Not for any of the Amish I know (And I know quiiiite a few) anyway.. I should have saw all this coming. My common sense totally leaves when I'm under a lot of stress. I'm working on controlling my anxiety and stuff, really hard.

When I took her home they said "You should probably have her feet done" ... That was all.

Well I'm glad you got her home, and I hope you can get everything sorted ASAP! I never understood how people could be so trusting or so kind in situations like this I'm a very passive person in general, but goodness nobody rides my horse, nobody touches my horse, it's hard for me to let my trainer on my horse. Anyway, it sounds like, to me, that you're doing everything right now that you have her in your care, and I hope everything starts looking up for you. It's no fun trying to deal with things like this while you're under a bunch of stress, but you may find that your entire stress load in general will be significantly lessened once you get your mare sorted.
