Horse people are batpoop crazy. Their owner could fly in at the last moment and try to attack anyone who's been around/messed with/treated/fed those horses in order to place the blame on anyone else but themselves.

If that contract is legally binding, then you need to talk to the BO about it before you approach the horse. Never approach a horse without the owner's permission. Ever. The BO might be thrilled that you are willing to do this. Or she may be angry.

THANK YOU. Those are some of my thoughts exactly. My heart really wants to do what I can to help, but I am also trying to be very cautious and careful. People neglect and abuse animals all the time, but good intentions do not protect you from legal action if you mess with someone else's property. I can't believe people on this forum actually try to blame me and tell me I'm a jerk for not immediately shoving my face in someone else's business and taking a serious legal risk. *eye roll* Thank you for being intelligent and offering real world advice. No good deed goes unpunished I guess.

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.

Thank you very much to everyone who offered helpful advice on treating mud fever. I appreciate the helpful legal advice as well. However I did not request your opinion on my action or inaction leading up to this moment. I very much appreciate factual advice, but please keep your judgements and opinions to yourself. The whole situation is very complicated and I am only requesting advice on treating mud fever, that is why I did not go into details about all the drama, without such details it is not reasonable to presume judgements on who is right or wrong in the situation. Thanks! :)

When you post on a public forum you are going to get opinions. That is a fact. If you don't want them-don't post. Telling folks what you do and do not want to hear makes no difference. Sorry if you don't like some of them. I really hope this horse gets the help it needs-and HAS needed for some time now from the sounds of it. ;-/

If people are free to express their opinions, am I not free to express mine? I have just as much right to request maturity from responders as anyone else, not to mention my right to point out that any opinion given without all the facts is incomplete and rash at best.
