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 can't 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 don't like telling people something is wrong with there animal.. I don't 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..
