Good on you Cherish-get rid of him and move on.

Happy you had the agreement, but......in the states, if they get out and hurt someone else-your agreement with him is not worth the paper it is written on from what I know, and sadly we have such a litigious society-everyone is looking for a quick buck it seems.

Anyway-he has taken total advantage of you and you need to let him know you are not his doormat. Go get' em! Don't make me come over there! Lol (altho I would LOVE the excuse...... )

He he ha lol , I would love to have you come over and help me get rid of him Frank but I am a bit concerned you would move into my spare bed room and I would have to sell my house to get rid of you. Seriously, things like this make a person very untrusting of everyone. I will ditch the doormat, puff myself up and go out there later. Let you know how I go. J

WELL he came early so I thought I would get out there while all your thoughts are still in my head. I told him that the babies have to go right now. I told him that I am a wreck over them being locked up but under no circumstances are they to be let out into our paddock as they will run through the fences and we will be sued from every angle and I won’t allow that to happen and I won’t allow them to remain locked up on my property as I see it as being cruel no matter what the racing industry thinks. He looked a bit bruised but assured me he will find somewhere else for them. I won’t back down. I will keep at him and at him till they are gone. I also told him the nanny must go immediately. If he does follow MY ORDERS I will consider keeping the other three here for a bit longer. If it drags on I will throw a total tanty (will practice that in the meantime) and he will run with his tail between his legs happy to be away from me. I have to stop thinking about where these lovely horses will end up. I have become attached to one in particular silly me. I will let go.--- I hope. Thanks everyone.

Good job, but......next time you see him let him know he has until......XX/XX/XXXX period. After that, your board fees triple to cover the liability. Lol Hang tough, even if they are cute and sweet.

Have you considered purchasing the one you have grown attached to?
Yes I know, I'm no help at all Good luck with this situation. You seem to have your head back on level and handling it nicely.

Don’t laugh Rasca, the thought has crossed my mind. My daughter worked for years in the racing industry and now has several horses she became attached to in her paddocks. This could be an inherited affliction. My avatar picture is of my pony Bob. He was thirty seven years old when I had him put down last year L, and for the first time since I was twelve, I am horseless so I am a bit vulnerable. I have a feeling this guy will try to drag this on a bit though. I might have to get a bit nasty. Not really me but I do have to think of my own welfare.

Update on this all. I ended up getting farm insurance as I rang my home insurance co and they said we were not covered for agisting animals and it was classed as a business. EEEKKK. It works out to around $15 per week. I then told him I was adding this insurance to the agistment fees which he agreed to. I then issued him with a written letter stating that if the horses were not removed within a month of the date of the letter they would be classed as abandoned and handed over to authorities. I am sure he would have realised that that would have meant he would be in big trouble. IT WORKED !!! Yesterday with three weeks to go he came and took the weanlings and has taken them to a local horse agistment facility which will cost him $20 a day each. No wonder he was trying to stall me and string me on . I only charged him $20 a week per horse. It’s so sad that you have to come down heavy on people before they take you seriously. I am not holding my breath about the others leaving but at the very least the poor little weanlings are out of confinement and in a paddock with other weanlings, where they can at least have a run around and stretch their little legs. Ahhh I can sleep at last. I would not recommend agisting to anybody. Never again but good outcome for now. :)
