how should i discuss conditions of my inlaws horse with them
I haven't been in months to see my in law's horses ( the way the are kept I refuse to see them) we had to return some thing to them today and went to see the horses, once again there 36 x36 pens, there pens have not been mucked about in about a week or so, I notice that my father in law horse was having trouble walking and was leaning way to far back on her front, upond closer look I notice that her hooves have not been trimed ( only way I can describe it...like a duck bill) with the heel very worn down, I also notice that the coranry band was way to flacky for my liking on her back hoof with a servre chip in that hoof, I checked on the other 2 horses in the next pen, one seemed fine and the 2 year old filly looked really ribby and the hoofs where duck billed (flaired out), last time I tried to help her out she told me off and told me she could do what she wanted with her horses...well i've had it with them....no horse has to go through what theses poor horses are being put there and just about to go over the sheriffs dept heads, theses are people who have never bought horses and it show's...to bad that I don't have a digital camera on hand to show you what I mean, but i'm willing to play nice with them till animal welfare comes in...any suguestion how to tell them about there horses?
HOME IS WHERE THE HORSE IS.........
