i am a stay at home mom also... and it is very difficult for me to go to the barn for a good amount of time.my husbands schedule is crazy..and i can only go when he is home. he usually works 16 hr shift every day.. so if the 8 hours he has off is at night i cant go to barn. if it off in morning...i can only go if baby will peacefully sleep with him if i put her to bed with him. being a SAHM is hard work. always on your toes and busy taking care of you child and the house. i cant take angelina to barn either, because she gets way to excited and will not stick to one place and will try to get in the field with the horses. and she is 2 years old. And Cinny, your son being autistic makes it a 100 times harder then i have it! so people should really be more considerate of your situation. your time at barn should be your getaway.

Cinny, to bad your not near me! I'd baby sit for you in a heartbeat! Finding a babysitter for a child with autism is difficult. There is one out there though, you just have to work extra hard to find one!

I have a wonderful one. She is a college student and can somehow weave Michael in schedule. But, it's not cheap and hubby has me limited as to how many hours a week he will pay for a sitter. Sitter time is not cheap and even more precious, too precious to spend on an Evil Spawn who isn't even my own horse.

At 2 hours for the day. half hour is taken up in driving right off the top. That leaves 1 1/2 hours to groom, tack up, warm up, ride, untack, regroom, put Cinny to bed, measure out grain for a few days. But wait, 1/2 hour to 45 minutes is wasted because of Monster.... doesn't leave me with much, I might as well not even tack up.

So few "get" it LOL.

Hopefully your days of having to deal with Monster are over. If the BO does what she promised, you won't have to spend that precious time on that Hel* Whelp. Take a deep breath and concentrate on relaxing. Let go of the anger and resentment and get ready to start enjoying your time.

this just sounds like one messed up situation....id move if it was me..but thats just me...i may not be a single parent...but i do take care of a 45 year old paranoid scitzophrenic with learning disabilities who has seizures and wets himself among other things..he has the mind of a toddler...thus..my own time getting to see my horses is rare..maybe twice a week if i am lucky, though i can understand where your coming from...calling the horse devil spawn is kind of unfair...as it is not the horses fault he is like how he is...it is the owners for not working with him and socializing him as he or she should..if anything...the human is the evil spawn here.

take a long whip out to protect yourself from psycho wanna be murder horse! And use it a few times on him so he gets the message!

I don't care if its my horse or not if its trying to kill me I need to defend myself.

Your right, I will just go back to calling him Monster. Or maybe Unmannered Horse.

Cinny, I am a stay at home mum too. My son is 8 now so life is much easier for me but I'm just popping in to this thread to say that I do understand your difficulties too. You are living life in a very taut state of existence in which you only manage by planning and managing every second.

No, you should not have to deal with Monster during your precious time at the yard, I hope the barn owner is sorting it today....or sooner!

I doubt Cowgirl was trying to be hurtful - until you have lived life in another persons shoes it is sometimes impossible to imagine how hard things can be. It WILL get better! All those classes and groups you are taking your son to, all the coaching and caring you are doing - will reap rewards as he does learn to live more independently over time.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Cinny has been moved. Today I went to get him out for the farrier and he was in another run with my friend's horse. Its a little smaller but I'm fine with that. It was so lovely to go in, pat both horses on the head, put a halter on Cinny and quietly lead him out in under a minute. Ahhhhhhhhh
