that my vet doesnt want her moved right now. so yea, it isnt ideal for the horse to be there.. but its worse to trailer her. I cant pick her up and carry her so guess what?
The horse is three hours away - how can your vet make a determination if the horse should or should not be moved? We have dead lame horses trailered (correctly wrapped and hauled) into the equine clinic on a frequent basis because that is where the equipment is to best help the horse.

It's only pissy if the questions make you uncomfortable. Just saying . . .

Totally agree mls... We get dead lame horses, horses cut up walking on three legs, and they all manage a trailer ride just fine.
I don't get her whole thinking, if you sent it on a trial with the provision that they could refuse said horse and send it back, why would you just figure they would take the horse and you were safe from paying anymore board or money if they didn't want the horse.Maybe the OP figured if they took the horse they would not bring it back. A trial is just that, a trial.
I don't do trials anymore and don't expect anyone to do one for me.
In the end she is responsible for the horse, it is hers until the "deal" was final and sounds as if the deal fell through. Her horse her responsibility. Now she needs to do what will be best for the horse, euthanizing, selling at a sale barn, whatever but it is her responsibility and she needs to quit feeling sorry for herself and step up to the plate.

You were told they were riding the horse while it was sore and swollen and you did not intervene. Sorry - this goes back on you.

3 hours or not, I would of been in my truck with the trailer behind it.
I believe she is saying there that when the horse came up lame it was not given stall rest.

Myth= Free/Cheap horses are expensive.
Indy was $150 we keep her in a pasture with a shed for free and she is brushed and fussed over dailey. Other then deworming and feet trimming she isn't costing us anything.
