You dragged you horse. Behind a truck. By the neck. And you've not gotten a vet out? You don't know that she's fine, she fell and was dragged. She could very easily have damage you can't see.

She needs to get somewhere to someone who can care for her and I am really doubting that'll happen. My heart breaks for this poor filly.

You DRAG a fallen horse, by the neck, behind a truck....
And you think the only problems she's going to have are a few cuts And scrapes?.....

You are very lucky the horse didn't end up like this:
Man accused of dragging horse behind truck

Please give this horse to someone else will actually take proper care of her and TRAIN her.

*Insert something witty*

Honestly... Right now I don't give a **** how you can't afford to buy her a bale of hay, but you can buy a new computer.
That's absolutely no excuse whatsoever for you to DRAG your horse behind a lorry. If I was in your area I would have had the SPCA out to you a long time a go.
Harsh but real.

Normally I'm not one to jump into something like this. But you drug your horse behind a truck and thought nothing of it?! It's one thing to lead them while in/on some type or vehicle, many of us have done that, but to drag her across the ground and not worry if she's hurt her neck is unbelievable. I hate to join the bandwagon but you should NOT have a horse.

If your horse can not even be lead around on a leadline yet, and you had to pull her behind a truck...and you can't afford the correct feeds, water, or or health care for this mare...I'm going to have to agree with everyone else. You need to get rid of her.

I currently have a 21 month old who I've been working with since late December who was severely neglected to the point of abuse, and who has suffered extreme trauma just like your horse. I had her leading like an old school horse within 2 months and she already hard ties, picks up and holds her feet, bathes, leads, yields to pressure, backs up on command, loads into trailers, and isn't pushy about her meals. It is not hard to teach a two year old to lead well enough to bring it in from a dangerous situation...and its inexcusable to not have a halter that fits her. Sell her and be done with it. Maybe you can find a nice place to get riding lessons if you still want to be around horses.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Absolutely disgusting. This has gone to far.

Get rid of this horse NOW, and get some common sense.

I think you've kept this animal from the life it deserves for long enough.

I am getting a 4 month old Tennessee Walker/Spotted Horse mare

Had this been brought to attention? The OP was banned but now has a new account?

Wow, I wonder what happened to Baxter...

I'm getting knots in my stomach things of all the possibilities... Slaughter bound, preventable accident (like being dragged by the neck by a truck), starved...

It sounds like this mare is on the same path.
