    Don't let up. If you would be happier with it filled, then get it filled. Essentially, of they don't want to hear another thing about the hole, then they should fill it and the problem goes away. Experience with horses really shouldn't matter so much as "I want this done to be happy."

    Tell him you'd rather fill the very small hole rather then risk a very large vet bill! And if he won't do it, ditch the middle man and do it yourself.

    I wouldn't leave any hole big enough for a hoof to fit in.

    Is it gophers or moles that make the holes? Areound here, I think it's moles. My lawn has plenty.

    Have a good search around the hole. If it was created by critters, then there will likely be more than one. While searching, put a long stick in the holes so you don't have to search for them again.

    There was one this past summer where I board, I dragged a huge field stone over it and told my barn owner, he kept the horses in, put out traps and then filled the hole after the animal was caught.

    I would fill it and be very careful about taking any advice on horses from the brother. Don't be rude just smile and shake your head. But ya fill the hole it should be easy.

    I always tell hubby, if he doesn't want to do something for me, "well if you won't do it, you'll force me to hire an attractive handy man to come out to do it for me" which always gets his goat. LOL Happy wife, happy life! If he won't do it, do it yourself, ask your father to help, or HIRE someone to do it for you

    Tell him you won't fill the hole if his brother can run full tilt across the field, step in the hole and not hurt himself. No jumping allowed.

    I can't fill the hole myself.

    I broke my leg (femur) Oct. 23, had sugery for plate and screws to try to fix broken leg on Oct. 24. As of CT scan on March 5, no healing of break happening. I can not put any weight on it at all. As matter of fact, if next set of x-rays do not show any healing happening (set for x-rays April 11) doctors are talking more surgery to do bone graft. :(

    Sorry that you are hurt.
    Tell your husband that you would like the hole filled in. End of conversation.
