Soo....I got the job!!!!! The women has 3 OTTB and one pony. The mare that I ride, she got off the track in September and let her be a pasture horse, have some time of up until now. So I get to retrain another OTTB!!! And get paid to do it, along with getting the kids pony ready for the summer, barn chores and working at shows for her!!!! I'm so excited that it all worked out!!!!
The women told me I could bring my mare out there and just work off board completly. AllI'd have to pay for is farrier, dental, and vet bills. And since she's always been a sound, easy keeper...well it'd be possible.
However....my dad told me to "not worry about your horse, she's fine where she is now and doesn't need to move" And it sounds like he's not going to let me take her. Even though it'd help him out with bills...he doesn't use her for anything. I think he's just mad about I guess you could say...the death of out father daughter relationship. And the fact that I've cut off all ties with him, moved out, got my own phone. He's a control freak and now...he's realizing I don't need him for anything anymore. That I'm the only one in his world...that's not terriffied, that's strong enough to get out..and stand on my own two feet. But now...he's trying to get the control back, by keeping the mare from me.
He told me she's fine but truth is she's not....I went out to see her and she was in a muddy pasture with no water, slipping and falling...he hasn't given her the supplements and her feet are really over grown. I don't know what to do. She's my baby...and as much as I'd always said I'd risk my life for her...this time its for real.
She chased me around the pasture....like my bestfriend, when she saw me she started whinnying and trotted over to me, it made me almost cry. I miss her so much. I just don't know what to do.
