She is helping by feeding the horse, she did say if there was an emergency she would get the vet out.

Doesn't checking to make sure the mare isn't carrying twins count as a good reason to have the vet out?

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

My point is, the vet will confirm whether the mare even IS pregnant - if the mare is not pregnant, there may be other underlying issues that are causing the appearance of pregnancy which would require medical care. Providing ROUTINE care (which for a mare that is suspected in foal would include a well-horse exame, confirmation of pregnancy, etc)is part of what I would consider taking responsility for and helping this particular horse.

I've mentioned it to them. Basically I'm feeding her. She will get the nutrition she needs while pregnant and ill be able to get a vet out if needed.

Vet care is the owners responsibility, unless the OP has entered into some kind of lease agreement, which makes her responsible. If I remember correctly from the other thread this horse is past the point of pinching off a twin. Don't get me wrong vet care is important but so is feeding the horse properly pregnant or not.

No contract. Simply feeding the horse and will offer emergency vet care if need be.

Which is exactly what I asked.

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree as I read the OP's own words:
Quote:
I got her owner to bring here so we can take care of her.
as OP taking on that responsibility by asking that they be allowed to "take care" of the horse -- OP sought out the responsibility of caring for this horse.

Getting decent feed is at least trying to help the mare where she would otherwise have nothing. The OP is doing what she can. Not everyone has a budget that allows for someone else's vet care responsibility.
