Anyway, I am back home on my own computer, and trying to think up a contract that is fair. Just canceling out on everything is not an option, I guess. The woman who wants the foal is my daughters mother in law, and my daughter is beginning to get very upset with me, accusing me of wanting to back out on the deal, her mil is happy and excited, and yes, I do understand all of that, but I'm also not willing to be ran over. The mare is going to the vet to be palpated on the 21st, we don't even know for sure that she is pregnant yet, which I told the lady, and she said she wasn't concerned, because if the stallion bred her, then she HAD to be pregnant. I am now hoping against hope that she is not pregnant and then this whole issue will be moot. What in my opinion was a very loose agreement on my daughters porch, is in my daughters opinion a legally binding contract, and changing it now is seen as me causing trouble and trying to back out. This lady knew I was disabled, so she knew I did not want to raise a foal, so she asked if she could have the foal if she bought the mares feed each week, and I agreed, nothing was said about what if foal was stillborn, aborted, or whatever, they were in a big hurry to leave, and I fully expected to discuss it farther at a later date. She has not given me any trouble yet, but seeing how the issue is going with the party with the other mare, has me worried, plus she is always telling me things her boss says we ought to be doing, what feeds, etc. And unwanted advice from a 20 year old girl who considers herself a horse expert.
