I did not know that the kind of damage would be done, and if I had known then I would of done things differently, and our family has kind of had bigger issues than a sick horse.
Maybe you should think about things before you judge people.
I said I was wrong, maybe you should offer advice instead of thinking you are better than me :)
I can tell you are 17 because of your reply. Take offense if you want, but I used to have that same tone. First off no one thinks we're "better than you" but we know that you personally thought about not giving the horse the proper vet care as stated in your post due to it being a freebie.. which we responded to in fold.
So she has problems, which horse doesn't?! You said YOU found her with a nail. As natisha stated.. that's an emergency situation. You realized this too late (we aren't blaming you, it happens) but in future.. get the vet out. Even if it's not your horse, because this horse can go from healthy to on their deathbed. No hoof, no horse. Nails are usually rusty and can cause a serious infection, etc. etc.
If the owner doesn't want to pay, they don't want to pay *shrug* but I rather spend money to help a horse live and give it what it needs. I would be heartbroken if my lessee didn't call the vet out if Sky got into trouble because she couldn't get ahold of me and thought "pfft.. not my problem cause it ain't my horse" (which again, NOT SAYING THAT YOU THOUGHT THAT, this is a situation I am making up.)
