Exclamation do i have a right to be angery?

I figured that i could put this under 'horse health' because it is effecting this horse.

I recently, sold my 9 year old gelding, zorro, to my neighbor. Shebought him knowing that he had a hoof problem. That he could only do light riding, which is why she bought him, to teach her newborn to ride in a couple years.

So she bought him knowing that hoof problem would cost more money because he needs his feet done every 6-8 weeks like a normal horse, but she was going to put a special shoe on him. Well, my horses are over with Zorro, as a trade kinda thing so that we don't have to feed our horses hay and they don't have to pay money for Zorro, as of right now. They are going to pay us money still, and they have, but he is rightfully HER horse...

2 weeks ago i got my other 3 horses trimmed and was going to tell her that i was having the farrier out, so just in case she could get him trimmed as well but i couldn't get of her. SO, almost 3!!! months from the last time he was trimmed he still hasn't been.

I'm really torked off because of his foot problem he limps, not that noticeably ( he is lame im sure) and needs his hoof care to be taken seriously.

I went out to pay some attention to the horses today. and both of his front feet are in babbabababaddddd condition.. not like he cant walk or holy crap condition... but they are long and cracking.. and the bad foot is really bad.. and its swollen.. and she rode him the other day:/ just walking to the gate and stuff not that long.. but she should have noticed his feet right>???!?!

Would it make you made to see a horse that you sold, being, in my words, not neglected but what's the word.....invisible.. i guess.. she isn't seeing that he REALLLLLLLLLY needs trimmed...

what should i do.. now most of you know im not an adult.. i dont like telling people something is wrong with there animal.. i dont want her to get mad at me.. and my parents might get mad at me for saying something so someone about an animal that's not mine.. << read about Sunny and I. Our journey

I am confused - you said it was a trade and she didn't have to pay you money as of right now, but then say that she will pay and has paid -- what, exactly, was the agreed upon deal for the transfer of the horse's ownership? Was anything put in writing and signed by adults on both sides of the exchange? Has a bill of sale been issued transferring ownership of the horse? Is the horse registered and, if so, has anything been done to transfer his ownership officially with that registry?
Ultimately, you need to speak with your parents, express your concerns and they can determine how best to proceed.

sorry for making you confused.. They HAVE paid SOME of the money, and some we are doing in trade. NOT doing a bill of sale until we get all the money. but still its there responsibility to take care of the horse, we have established that.. yes.:) nothing else has been done yet. << read about Sunny and I.

You can voice your concern to your parents and to the new owner but that's about it. What they do with their horse is up to them. If you were to have him trimmed without them approving, they could get very upset about it, even if it's the right thing to do.

As a minor, you really have no justification to speak to Zorro's owner about his foot care.

However, you can voice your concerns to your parents, and let them handle it. The neighbor may be in a bind financially, and that's not something that needs to be discussed with a child.

If yo do talk to your parents, do NOT be accusatory or over dramatic. State calmly and logically why you think there's an issue.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

If you've sold the horse and there is a genuine welfare issue, I'd speak to them about it. If it's not a case of actual cruelty or neglect(3 months since a farrier's not great but not the end of the world at all, of itself), then perhaps you can be angry with yourself, for selling the horse, but I don't think you have any real right to get upset about it - aside from being disappointed & sad.

Are you sure the new owners realize that you are expecting them to take care of hoof care? They may not consider the horse theirs since he's not paid off and thus think its up to you.

get your parents to contact your vet and ask what he thinks you should do and about it.
