Yes, it did happen. The BO's horse was injured. I was just curious what would have been the case if it was a boarder's horse, hence the hypothetical. I honestly didn't think everything would get so heated.

She should be ok. She severed her extensor tendon, if I got that right, so its going to take lots of recovery time. She is on stall rest right now. The vet had said originally she could have time in the round pen but she started running and bucking around so now she's stuck in the stall. My mom was leasing her but now she'll lease another horse.

This was a couple years ago before my "reputation" for being the evil barn owner.

It was a about a horse who went under a fence into another pasture and fought with another horse.

Yeah, sometimes threads get heated quickly over very little ;)

Well it's good to hear that she is going to be okay, will she still be ridable?

I'm not sure when and if she will be rideable. My mom was thinking about leasing a different horse anyway because of some behavior issues that she is not able to fix on her own. The bad thing is that she started dressage this year and was doing so well at it so its kind of sad that she might not be able to show anymore.

I'm having a bit of trouble playing this out in my mind. The tin was behind the trough, but suddenly the tin is outside the paddock. Does the trough border the fence and in saying the tin was behind the trough you mean it was on the other side of the fence?

IMO, if there is something hazardous to a horse within the boundaries of the pasture, and the BO has been alerted to it but chooses to leave it there and a boarder's horse is injured, then the BO must accept full responsibility.

If the hazardous thing is outside the pasture and a horse somehow gets into it, then I wouldn't count on being able to hold the BO legally liable. Frankly, I wouldn't board at a place that left junk lying around.
