No she didn't. She said she agreed with the whole fence thing but that the horses generally avoid the pool and if you look at the photo there is no fence.

yeah ok i went through and re-read the whole thing! i guess i am getting threads confused now! ahh thats bad! lol definitely get that pool fenced in! or let the BO and handlers know you DON'T want your horses there to graze. or you'll take your business and money somewhere else. thats not worth havign to pay so much in vet bills.

If i still had my horse and that happened to it. i would have been very mad at the BO.

if u still stay it's ur fault if your horse is skinny and gets hurt after this again.

sorry, but its true

Sorry that your horse was hurt. But the BO's responsibility is to care for your horse. They are paid to do so, and no fence around a pool is asking for trouble. What if it was a young child. AS far as your horse Yes it does look to be on the thin side. Sunken withers, no top line over the croup area. Looks like it could use a few wormings and some extra feed. Hate to say it but your barn owner isn't doing nothing but abusing your horse. If the BO doesn't see this I would find a place to go quickly

Its not her horse. BUT next time it could be. Please think about your horse! Do you want her to get hurt like that? I have had friends that thought it would be nice to let the horse graze around the pool untill a few hours later they found him floughting dead in the pool. Horses dont think "OH CRAP I fell in the pool." They think "OMG WHAT HAPPEND!"

There was 2 horses ended up in the a pool not too fare from me when the tornado went through a couple weeks ago.

Legally you are suppose to have a fence around in ground pools and a way to lock stars on above ground pools

• Horses: 1's illegal to have a pool without a fence around it. 0.o What if it were a young child who aimlessly wandered into that pool and ended up with a concussion, or worse, drowning?

And now I know why....

There's one horse who will probably never enjoy crossing water again!
