    Boils down to the same issue - this is not your horse.

    There is way too much - "I don't know I wasn't there". It is impossible for anyone to give remotely decent advice when we don't have the story straight.

    If you are so worried about the horse, make an offer, buy it and then make the decisions for the horse.

    The impression I am getting from this poster's posts on this horse is that while she is not the owner, only a leasee, she genuinely cares for this horse and is on this forum to try to get advice on things she can do..... or mention to the owner to do..... to try to help this horse out.

    As for buying the horse, the poster gives the impression that while she would love to do so, at this time the horse is either NOT up for sale and/or circumstances do not allow this possibility. That Doesn't mean that she can just stop caring...or give up trying to better this horse's care and quality of life.

    My advice to the OP is that foremost: this horse needs regular turnout time. She should mention this to the owner...

    I have a 6 yr old OTTB also, and without regular and frequent turnout....he would go insane. Literally. It is unfair and cruel to confine ANY horse to its stall for such long periods of time....even more so for a young, sensitive, energetic, athletic horse like an OTTB....especially a 6 yr. Old OTTB.

    This cruel confinement is not the OP's fault....and she seems to understand on some level that this horse should have more turnout. She does what her time limitations allow....

    Perhaps she should talk to the owner about the turnout situation and see what can possibly be done to allow this horse out of it's cage more often....

    Unfortunately, her options are limited as to what she can personally do for this horse, but that doesn't stop her from caring. Or asking for advice and ideas.....

    We should all appreciate her concern for this horse.

    Concern is one thing. Trying to get answers and advice when you have a small fraction of the information and then telling everyone they are wrong when they give you advice is different.

    If the OP came out and said that she was simply concerned about a horse that is not hers and she has no control over but was wondering that would be different.

    Well, that's true Alwaysbehind, but I am assuming that what she is doing on this forum is trying to gain some ideas and advice that she can put before the owner, hoping the owner will take some of the advice.....

    Perhaps she has a good relationship with the owner and that the owner would consider some of the OPs suggestions.....

    We can always hope.
