Ok, so two houses down from me there are two mares. From what my Dad was told, the daughter(horses were for her) dropped out of college, ran away and eloped with her cowboy. She took the two horses she had in college with her to his ranch. Now I guess the girl's dad(my neighbor) is telling his wife(my other neighbor) that she has to get rid of the horses. The mom/wife is a rn and works 12hr shifts so it would be hard for her to ride often. My Dad was thinking that I should go over, ask if she would like me to excercise her horses(no charge), then he is thinking it might eventually lead to them giving the horses to us for free or little cost. My Mom thinks maybe I should find out the situation for sure(the hubby/dad might just be saying things without the wife/mom's approval) and then ask if I could feed lease them. My Dad seems really interested in their trail mare so I am pretty sure if she is good,calm, and for sale for a low price he would buy her.
My question is, what should I say? Offer to ride? Just ask about the situation?
Sorry for it being so long. Any opinions will help!
