If it were my dads personal horse he would have. But since it was my horse, my dad took him to the sale. From there I told my neighbor who had been wanting to buy him for a while, and she made a promise to buy him. She knows everything that happened, and trains horses so I believe he is better off there.
Thanks for understanding why I got rid of him, even though you would have taken a different path, other than thinking it was dumb for me to just not fix the problem or something rather like that.
The horse to my dad was not worth it. I have a $23,000 bill now.. and no way was he worth that to my dad.
If it was up to me.. Im glad we sold him. I had been thinking about selling him for a while..
As Tryst said( Sorry I don't want to go back a page to find this quote)
So your horse that you sold had no history of bad behavior, injures you once in a situation that you had not trained him how to behave properly, but instead of working with him to change the behavior you sell him
? Is that the plan if this filly acts up, misbehaves or hurts you too?
How could you say I did not train him properly? Yes you could say.. HE kicked you, obviously I don't know how to train right> how do you train a horse not to kick when he has never tried? He was NEVER the type of horse to get in my bubble, get in my space, NOTHING.. listened perfectly... I actually had him where I could ride him liberty..
For me this is a in the wrong place, wrong time
type deal. I don't believe he would do this again. I KNOW it is my fault for what happened at that moment..
But he was the best behaving horse I have had.. With finals and stuff with school.. I had not been spending enough time with him..
Thanks and sorry if that came off rude.. or hard to understand..
