    Can you please explain how it is possible you have even the $15K invested (you corrected the $50K, I believe.)? Some of us are having a really hard time figuring that out. I could possibly see it if she had been in training at a professional trainers since she was in utero........
    Not being at all familiar with VA geography I'll take your word on that one!

    OP, your filly needs hay today. And tomorrow, Saturday, and for the rest of her life. I am seriously concerned for her wellbeing - if you have enough money to buy a brand new computer and pay up to $125/hr for a trainer you can pay for hay and however much it might cost to get it trailered to you.

    There is a few here in VA, but not many who aren't already full. Then again I don't know where the OP is located in VA either.
    The money part has me seriously confused too...since she isn't trained and obviously not being fed the proper things I am confused as to how this sum of money has appeared......So if you could explain that OP that'd be great!

    My biggest concern is you stated you have owned her since she was 4 months old? What have you been feeding her since then?

    I'm sorry, but there is no way on this earth anyone is going to tell me that this filly has had proper nutrition for the last 1 1/2.
    You need to contact either your vet or a horse nutrionist to get her on the correct feed program and buy some hay!

    This is my 14 month old filly. She is a different breed, but that doesn't matter when they are feed correctly.

    She stated on a different thread that she is in Grundy, which, according to map quest, is in the far southwest corner-rather close to Kentucky.....and W va.....no surprise here......

    Oh yes. I know the area. Drove through there a few times on Professional Photo missions. Amazingly poor area... amazingly hopeless in many ways with the demise of high sulfur coal. Best steady jobs are with Norfolk Southern Railroad. Very expensive to get hay there I am guessing.

    Yep, Grundy's not exactly an 'elite' area. The last time the river flooded, many of the businesses just closed down and moved out. I believe the population isn't much over 1,000. Typical poor Appalachian mountain town.

    I stayed in Grundy years ago at the Comfort Inn. New at the time as I recall. I also recall small helicopters in the parking lot.. they were used to check the power lines and power line corridors. I have been in the dollar store/Safeway food store whatever it is now I do not know. Very rugged country.

    I was taking photos of trains.

    I totally agree. I have been reading this and other post from the op and I am truly concerned for the health and well being of this mare. She will most likely have lifelong issues stemming from the malnutrition(that is dangerously close to abuse). And certainly is in no condition for a training regiment of any kind. Horse ownership is a responsibility not all are ready or suited for and the op should really spend time thinking(honestly) what is in the best interest of this horse she seems to really care about.

    I do care about my horse and I do not abuse her.The rice bran costs 35 dollars for a 50lbs bag it lasts for 2 weeks and two 50lbs bags of triple C is 25.00 it lasts for two weeks as well.The hay is anywhere from $3.00-$7.00 a bale,$300-$400 is what was paid for 100 bales of hay at one time for my friends horse.The hay is really expensive in the area.I cannot find a job because most places want college educated people.I have been to college I lost a ride and had to quit.I am going to go back to college though to be an accountant and store manager.I will be working toward two college degrees.I do not and would not abuse my horse never.
