    She is getting vet care MIEventer, don't worry. :) A fence is going up soon everyone, and btw, she's not my horse. Her previous owner worked her to hard, and completly messed up her back. No one told anyone though, and when someone rode her at a walk, she couldnt handle the weight. It was a light person too. Anyway back on track, Im sorry guys but I don't understand why your driving at me. I am feeding my horses, they are on a special feed that the vet recommended. We had a VERY bad summer here, there was a drought, so the grass and hay wernt able to grow.

    However, I mean no offence to anyone. I appreciate all you've told me, but with all due respect, the barn I am at is very very good, it is one of the best in my area. I can promise you all that there is no abuse going on.

    Drought happens everywhere. We have had drought here where I live for the last 12 years. What do we do? We haul hay and feed in from elsewhere to feed our horses.

    Same here. Even though its been raining, its so dry the it just sinks into the ground straight into the aquafer(SP) Its so dry that there is sink holes poping up every where because farmers are sucking all the water out to water the crops. Times are hard but its not an excuse to have skinny horses.

    Nope exactly. Our hay has been trucked in from Canada even. Thank Epona that this year, we are ahead of schedule for rain and my hay guy has made 2 cuttings already. (whew!)

    Love Story, if you can't find enough feed for all your horses perhaps selling a couple is a good idea. That way you have less mouths to feed.

    That may not be everywhere, though. I expect it's on a state by state (or even county by county) basis. And I have no idea about pool fence laws in countries besides the U.S.

    There are a lot of folks from a lot of different places on this forum, just because it's illegal where you live, doesn't mean it's illegal where someone else lives.

    We were bringing it in from somewhere else. We had to bring it in from Mozambique, which is out of the country in the North, and we live somewhat South
