There is a woman I know, she has a Clydesdale cross, she gets everyone else to do all the dirty work, (i did it for 6 months until she took the horses away from me) then she breeds this mare but doesn't feed it enough so it looses it's foal. She is behind on her rent, she never comes up and when she does, she just invites all her friends and gets drunk in the caravan. It's horrible, she only has her horses for a status.
Unlike the rest of us on the yard, we like our horses to be well fed (not too fat nor thin) we like to give them good excercise, we have a cupboard full of ointments incase something minor pops up, we always have money saved up in our joint bank account incase something major pops up and we need the vet. We'd never let our horses go without, people do need to realise just how much effort, money and time has to go into horses when you own one. They're not just for christmas, they're for life.
Once a ride, forever a friend!!
