Speed Racer I don't think that your last comment was necessary, theirs no need in being childish.
However, yes she may be a minor, but again it is her responsibility to make her parents understand that it is for the health and well
being of both the mare and the filly. A horse is not something to be ***** footing around about, if your going to be paying $1000 or more, and then so much every month for board for an animal, then you'd better friggen well take care of it. If not then whats the point to keep it? You can lease a horse in that case, if you or your parents cant handle the responsibility or finances.
Whenever my horse needs something, like a vet or anything concerning his safety and health, if it concerns money having to be spent my parents don't question, they have absolutely no idea about horses, sheesh, my mom thought that 30 bales of hay would be enough for 4 months... anyway, they don't question it, because they know that I know whats best for him, if he needs to see a vet thats going to result in a $300 bill then hes very well going to see the vet, no ifs, ands or buts, and if I need to move him to another stable thats more expensive because hes not being treated right then I'll do that too.
