    This is really sounding like...I don't know but it's not right. No way anyone was or should have been riding him 3 weeks ago. This weight loss didn't happen that fast.

    When you go to pick him up and the give you a hard time have the $300 ready to go. Give it to them and just get the hell out. Worst case take them to small claims court and get your money back (assuming you have a written contract and a statement from your vet saying the horse has no digestive issues).

    Obviously just grass isn't enough just like hay and feed alone wouldn't be enough.

    You're not making sense, so you're saying the horse was underweight BEFORE he went to this barn. Then how is that the BOs fault? And the vet gave this horse the ok 3 weeks ago in this condition? Weight loss like that doesnt warrant riding and doesn't happen in three weeks. So how long has the horse been at this barn?

    I have it resolved and I don't have to explain anything really. I know what has happened and talking to animal control I have a strong case

    But you see this horse everyday, how do you not have any responsibility in this?

    Glad you are moving, that horse is suffering! Now get a different vet, because anyone who said this horse was okay 3 weeks ago doesn't know their butt from a hole in the ground! This horse needs some serious attention and good quality forage in front of him at all times. Please do not ride this horse, he is in distress!

    This horse has been in my care for 3 years and I have never had a problem with this weight until his diet became off balance. I am completely serious with everything that I am saying but I do have it resolved. I edited my post because I am under enough stress and I don't need everything else piled on me. People read too much into things when in reality as an owner I feel like I'm trying to do my best. Under the guidance of my instructor and others who I am close with I am trying to create a better enviornment for him.

    This whole thing sounds really sketchy to me. Yes, it is the BO's responsibility to feed and care for the horse according to the contract, but it is your responsibility as the horses owner to make sure that they are in fact being cared for. If you have been seeing this horse regularly and you are only now taking action, then the neglect is your fault.

    Honestly I was on your side, having only read this thread, until I started seeing the replies you gave to people who asked questions in order to determine how this happened so that they could help you. You either got defensive or ignored the questions completely. That doesn't strike me as someone who hasn't done anything wrong.

    You're right, you don't need to explain anything, but if it were me and I was in fact not at fault, I would WANT to explain. Even if that explanations was, "I made a mistake." it would be far better then defensiveness that will make many people decide you are in fact the neglector in this case.

    All I want to do is make things better honestly. I am not the perfect owner and I am sure no one is. If I wanted to be negligent I wouldn't be writing this post. I am sure there are many mistakes made by both parts.
