Oh, I have no doubt there are other mental illness involved. But I can't diagnose them. I don't remember my friend saying anything about any known substance abuse. But she does seem to be a person without conscience. What boggles my mind is the continued breeding. I haven't bred anything in five years. I won't breed anything I can't afford to keep. You can not count on being able to sell a horse these days. I know a few people headed for disaster, because they are giving horses away, and yet still breeding mares. You can't warn them, because they won't listen to advice. I have downsized to seven horses, who are fat and healthy. I see no reason to put that at risk by making more I might not be able to keep healthy. Seems that is just common sense. Posted via Mobile Device
