Hahaha agreed, SD. Forget about suing and focus more on getting this horse cleaned up, sedated, and gelded.

But I think Vida's sign summed it up nicely. I don't think this story is true.

I'm not sure we are getting the WHOLE story. Could you start over perhaps from scratch?

Everything sounds... Odd.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

The girl that rode your horse must have signed the release for it to even worth mentioning -- Not just a broad "My horse has balls so he's mean" statement. I don't think you have a leg to stand on in court. I'm with the other guys saying get a vet out and some adults. I know plenty of great vets here in MT and I'd be more than happy to give you some recommendations. I'd be more worried about getting his wounds cleaned than suing (sueing?). This just doesn't make sense.
We DO have a vet. Our neighbors and some friends are here.
I am the one trying to calm him down to medicate his cuts. My parents and the other adults are handling everything else.

We are taking care of this.

Then why'd you ask for help? Obviously we can't. Good luck in any case.

I was talking about a vet that knows how to take care of a horse. With the advice you say he gave you, he must have gotten his degree from a cracker jack box.

The pile deepens...

I think I am done here. The story is so bogus it's unbelievable.

If you have a vet, why aren't THEY in there with the horse? If a child is the only one who could go in there to medicate a horse's wounds, the horse needs to be sedated to be treated by someone who knows what they're exactly supposed to do. You said the horse was hurt bad, shouldn't a vet handle this?

I'm having a real problem with this statement. I've never heard of a racing stable that trained horses to dodge tranquilizer darts and "stuff." Why would they want to do that?

Haha, this is like reading a book. Totally a fantasy. No 14 year old would ever be hired like a professional to train horses. I'm sorry but that is the first thing I have and issue with.

Second, you say you and your friends can go in the stall with him (on the other thread).. but no adult? Really, and how does that work?

Third, why was he not gelded when you got him? Surely you could of then.

Fourth, why are you arguing with everyone trying to help you?

Fifth, if you are lying why not come clean? If your not, prove it.

Sixth, we all could go on picking your story apart, but I think don't anyone wants their time wasted like that.

I want to believe you but nope not now.
