Yeah, if she ends up pregnant, I'm not seeing it ending well.

Yes, I'd like to see the area cleaned up. I hope the OP continues to purchase hay very regularly and provide clean water. While the Donkey is very tiny, I'd certainly like to see them separated. That mare is too young, not in good enough condition and not breeding quality, to be bred.

And a kick in the pants to the idiot who rides the tiny Donkey.

Yes.. and regardless of how good she would be to breed to a TWH.. this cross with a burro would be a nightmare!

Hi Ashley,
I haven't posted in this thread yet but have followed from the beginning.
I hope you are making progress with all the things you've been trying to improve on with Barbie.
I noticed you hadn't replied regarding if she has been handled, how is she leading with a halter and lead line?

Sometimes she is hard to handle she has not been lead much.On Tuesday night she got out of the gate at the top of the hill because there is bears around there and I left it open so me and my friend had to go get her she acted up when my friend caught her, it would've been better if she had a halter the one I got her was too big and actually it was a yearling size it is out in the field somewhere so my friend had no choice but to tie the rope to her neck and lead her by truck I do want to make a note he says he has to get tags for his horse trailer and get the lights to work on it that's the reason why the horse trailer couldn't be used.When we were almost to the gate she fell and my friend was dragging her I told him to stop I thought she was dead but thank God she was alive she was just wore out my friend lead her to the gate and came back and got the truck she does have a couple of scratches.She is doing fine now this will not happen again at all she will go in the barn in the night time when I have to go somewhere.If you have concerns or questions about this let me know and I will answer truthfully about it.

Good lord, PrincessBarbie. You just seem to fall into one catastrophe after another with that poor horse. Did we establish that you had options to move your horse to another location?

So, you left the gate open, and she got out, and you guys tied her by her neck and literally dragged her behind a truck.

Bless this little filly's heart.

I'm sorry, but this goes from bad to worse. You left a gate open and didn't expect her to get out? You seem not to have worked with her, enough to lead her without problems? You don't have a halter which fits properly? You tie a rope around her neck and pull her behind a truck? She falls and gets dragged?

Am I saying this correctly?

If so, find a new, responsible and knowledgeable home for this horse, asap. You and your friend, should not own a horse. Any horse.

You've had her two years, but no halter which fits? You have not worked with her enough to lead her? This is a very bad accident waiting to happen. If there are bears in the area, what difference does it make if the gate is left open?

I thought you were doing well with her, but there constantly seems to be problems and getting worse. I am truly shocked now.

If my little granddaughters, did half the things we have seen here, they would no longer have a horse of their own.

Give this horse away to someone who can care for it.

If anyone dared mention roping my horse and dragging her behind their truck, you can bet I would be yelling at them and refusing their "knowledge". Poor girl, her neck is probably in pretty rough shape now.
