    I would not be holding the BO accountable, especially not since she has been very helpful throughout the process and did what she could to make the problem no longer exist. Those kind of BOs are not always easy to come by and I wouldn't burn that bridge.

    Yes, the BO has said things that put blame on herself, but to me that is not a good enough reason to try to get money out of her. It sounds like this was a freak thing, which mostly horse injuries are and that she has done a lot to make amends.

    If she's helping with care and taking responsibility, taking corrective actions against those responsible then I would just call it good. Obviously it wasn't done with malicious intent or anything.

    It seems she has already made up her mind when she stated her husband is a litigation attorney and not to say anything until she is ready move.

    The BO FIRED the barn helper, she helped care for the horse. BO took responsiblity probably because she felt bad that your horse was hurt on her land. You could have said something about a board in the ground. You are also Responsible for your horse.

    If you ask for money for the Vet bill, are ready to pay her for the Extra Care she gave the horse ? Was your horse placed into a box stall with shavings (extra charges) while healing ?

    You should have brought this up at the beginning, discussed care, etc .

    Even if not. Just because you married a lawyer doesn't mean you should use him for every little thing that happens.

    I really hope you do not sue. Our society is so litigious. At she point people have to take some responsibility for themselves and their own. If you have ever been to Europe it was the first thing I noticed. There are no yellow painted curbs-pay attention. There are no "wet floor signs"-you slip it is on you. Shoot, there are very few curbs or guardrails on the canals. You fall in-your problem. We need a bit more of that and less blaming others all the time Stuff happens. Sometimes it is NOONES fault.

    OP - I've seen horses live in junk yards and never get a scratch and others live in the most pristine homes and get torn up monthly. I think its just par for the course on horse ownership. I hope your mare continues to recover quickly - it sounded like a pretty bad injury.


    My world isnt anymore elite, we just have more common sense. If you took the time to mark it, then you should have just take a shovel and fixed it. Not to mention, why would you leave a board, with a hook on it, anywhere on the property. Whatever happened to putting the trash in the trash can.

    And sometimes it's your OWN fault for being careless, lazy. Or just plain stupid, but you sue anyway. I don't think very much of such greedy people.

    The BO probably should have checked that her worker did the job correct.
    I would be upset if it had happened to my horse, really upset, and I am Not Nice when it comes to my animals health.
    I would have said something right then and there, had my horse at the Vets and then moved from the Vets to another facility.
    Since you stayed, had the BO help with after care it changes your position. As I stated in a prior post you would owe her for the additional car etc. To sue now would be spiteful. IF you insist she pay, go speak to her first. Be prepared to move your horse.

    From what I can gather about Bug's posts is that he/she is a trainer for a breed circuit. Which many people who compete in breed circuits have their horse's insured. Most clients (in my experience) see horses as an investment and aim to protect that investment.
