I feel for you with people buying more and more horses instead of dealing kindly and correctly with the ones they have. It is hard to stand by and watch this, especially if you are expected to handle their horses for them.

Regarding the BIL taking the wrong horse from the farm, perhaps it will be simply a matter of swapping the mares. I hope it all works out.

No matter what road I travel, I'm going home and if I'm riding a horse I am halfway there.

Well, apparently Mickey backed out of buying the farm, and the other horses are gone. So he wont have a horse to swap, but BIL doesnt want this guy telling people he stole this horse, so he's contacting the 3rd party again tomorrow, b/c calls werent answered today.

Day Mares, thanks for understanding! And the trainer that is helping me with my horse has known me since I was born (her horse was the first one I ever rode-when I was 5!) and my mother knew her when she was born! So she helps me withme horse. She is great too. She doesnt want to do it for me, and she only helps when I need it! But it seemed like when she was there helping me with my horse that they inlaws would try to get her to start theirs, which she wont do for free. She's doing it for me b/c we're good friends.

MIL's new horse choke the other day, I looked it up, found out it was an emergency situation, told her to call the vet or he may die. She said she didnt have the money, so my hubby paid for it. The evryone came outside and stopped listening to me again after that. A lady on the thread I posted about the choking itself said my priorities were questionable (and hoped my family was in good health), b/c I left when the vet was on its way to ride and dress my horses foot. She is at my friends property so we can work on them together until the last show in two weeks. That really ticked me off b/c I am one of those people that never do anything for myself, and when I do I feel guilty. And she made me feel worse. But at the same time I got ticked, b/c if she did know me she would understand. They wouldnt even help me lead the freaking horse, and all that could be done anyway was to wait for the vet at that point. I couldnt help there and no one seemed to want it anyway, and my mare needs looked after too!

Still nothing b/c BIL has another big thing going on. Not sure if he's forgetting to tell b/c of the issues he's having, or if he doesnt know anything yet.

LAST UPDATE!!! : Found out that "Mickey" didnt own the mare anymore!!! He had in fact sold it to the doc and when he bought the farm, he thought he was buying his horse back! Well, he was ticked off when he realized the horse wasnt being sold with the property, b/c she was already sold! So YAY!

That's good news. I'm sure it was a big relief for all of you. Well, except Mickey of course...

Well, Mickey's the kind of guy that can buy whatever he wants, so I just guess he was mad that buying that huge farm didnt result in him getting the horse. If he really wants her he can ask to buy her back (but she wont be sold back, lol). She's in good shape tho compared to the other two. My farrier says we still got about three more appt before the pony's feet are normal, and the gelding has an absess that resulted from having long toes and a trim and moving to our place (rockier)... so poor guy is on epsom salts and (I cant think of the hrose aspirin's name...starts with a b...) for a few days and if no improvement by Wednesday or if he looks worse earlier, we will have a vet appt to see if he needs anitbiotics or if they can dig into the abscess.... poor thing...

Abscesses can be a real pain, but I'm sure in time, with the consistent farrier care they are now getting, they will become a loss less likely. You may want to look into a hoof supplement to add to their grain if they keep having problems with them while they are in transition.

Yes, they are and I was wondering about hoof supplement. Any brand recommendations? Good news is I think the abcess is getting ready to breal thro, so he should have some relief soon!
