1) Did you ever meet a deaf horse person? the first barn that i ever rode at/took lessons at when i was young had a boarder who was deaf. she was a beautiful rider and, imo, a beautiful person. she was very good to her horses, did all the grooming/tacking/riding/care (it was full care board so the rest of the stuff) herself and she was only a year or two older than i am - so perhaps 13 or 14 when i met her. i don't think being deaf has any bearing on how competent a horse person can or should be.

2) What do you think about a deaf person owning a horse? please see my answer to #1

3) What would you do if you experienced same purchase as I do? i think i might have gone back to the seller and found out what they would have to say about the whole situation, but i would have kept the mare too. it's not fair to her that she's had a crappy life/owners and was sold under false advertisement. good for you for caring for her regardless.

4) What would you do to encounter the bad barn owner about the feeding situations? i've moved three times in the last half a year for just this reason. if i'm paying for x, y and z then i better be getting x, y and z! simple.

1) I may have, but not a horse one. Personally, I think its admirable.

2) As long as you can care for the horse, give it love and attention I see nothing wrong with it what so ever.

3) Same thing. I would put the horse on a senior feed, probably some weight-gain supplements.

4) I'd drag out the boarding contract and show it to them and ask why they aren't feeding my horse like they promised. If your horse continues to loose weight because they aren't feeding your horse I would bring them to court. If you can't bring them to court, look for a new barn. When you look for a new barn look and see when and how they feed the horses and if they do. That way you don't have to keep moving barns because they aren't feeding your horse. Some barns have a 'fixed' grain for all horses. My barn does, however I'm sure if I supply the grain that they would feed it to my horse. They also let horses have supplements and feed it to the horses every morning.

A horse that is in her 30's will have a hard time keeping weight compared to a 15 year old. I know some horses that have that problem in their 20's.

Good luck!

...Wow I just typed all of that...LOL. Oh well.
ETA: Why was she banned? I don't think there was anything wrong with her thread, considering it was her first post?

Hey y'all. The OP is me. I am the same person. This is what happened to me before I adopted other two horses. So, you guys aren't typing for nothing. I faced a lot of problems because I am deaf. I have a lot of stories to share, but I don't know if I should. It is full of dramas and bull**** from other people. Let me know if you want me to share more stories of the problems I have faced being only one deaf person in this horse community where I live.

P.S. I made a new account...

The 2nd account was banned as it is against the rules.

Having had a 2nd chance with the original account Theophania did not work it seems, publicly bragging you broke the rules can only earn you a ban.

No reason to leave the thread open
