That person sounds he is using that spread as a tax write off. It was so bad here in the states, horse lost the tax deduction for fed and vet care etc, around the mid 80's I want to say 86 for some reason. The only expect with in a commerical breeder, a farm, or ther business, but hobbiest lost the tax write off.
He doesn't want to hire his neice (unless she has for some reason should not be around livestock) or anyone else and the work force is pushed to the limits with more increase in work coming. This sounds like the type of man I would want to hire, if I wanted to watch that business fail.
I would try to report him second handed if possible, a vet or other exbert would be the best way to do that. And if the person put heat on your dad, he can say with a straight face, "I had nothing to do with it."
A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
