Advice..... what would you do?
So some of you may have read the post about the lease that went bad with my 3 year old mare a few months back. This kind of stems back to it....
So the lady who had my horse, her son and I are best friends as well as my sisters boyfriend. Well in the past 5 months, I have been nothing but nice to this lady. And everyone on the drill team, as another friend on the drill team is using one of my horses.
Well one sunday when I wasnt there, they were having a team meeting about a fun show they were putting on to raise money. Well, after practice my friend tied his horse to the trailer for their meeting. As he was walking away, his mom and aunt were like lets let the horses loose... they can't stand tied to the trailer, he said they would be fine. Well that's when a big blowup happened, his mom yelled at him and told him "We are not going to be inconsiderate horse B**tards like Briana. She is cruel to her horses."
Now since then, they have needed a vet 3 different times, and everytime they call me for the number. Now I give them the number, becasue I know its not the horses fault. But how, and what would you do?
I mean, I don't want to cause to much issues because of my friend... but its hard for me to help people like that.
That all being said, my horses meet me at the gate, come running when I call. Are all fat and sassy and up to date on everything. And Yes, at shows, my horses stand tied to the trailer while im not riding. However, I expect my horses to act a certain way, and if they don't they are corrected. And that's why anyone can mess with my horses....
Where theirs have no respect for your space or you as a person...
Sorry for the rant... but I am at a loss as of what to do?
Your advice would be really appreciated. Thanks for reading and the help.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
