Found out some interesting news- some people shouldn't be allowed to keep horses!

Duffy's previous owner has me on face book, I've kept her on there despite being furious about the condition I got Duffy in so she can see what a difference there is!

Well, the horse she bought to replace Duffy, funnily enough is in the same condition, and she's selling that too.. apparently too difficult and stubborn.

Makes me - that mad that people buy horses, let them get in to that state, and when it doesnt work, sell and buy another to ruin!

Perhaps she is making money by taking advantage of kind hearted people who wish to get the animal out of the condition she puts it in.

Perhaps, I didn't buy Duffy for her condition though.. it may have been part of it, but as soon as I was in the saddle it felt 'right' and she had the breeding, age and training I was looking for. She lost 200 off the price when I bought her though.. she paid 4000 I paid 3800

Doesn't it make you fume though...

I never thought of that but -- it's something to consider when there are women in this world who "lightly" poison their children just to get all the attention

Kind of a broad analogy but nonetheless---------------------------

I have always said people should have to apply to be horse owners.

Me neither.. me neither

Run through of Duffy's problems

Overgrown feet to the point where they'd curl up- farrier opinion- if left another two weeks
Old nails left in hooves
Thrush
Thin
Wounds untreated on her hind legs
40% fur missing on one hind leg due to becoming cast IN A PONY BOX
23 and a half hours stood in a box no excercise, no chance to communicate with other horses.

No wonder she ran on to the trailer :S

Sounds a lot like gypsies here in my country - they buy just about any horses, often from slaughterhouses, from people who can't or won't deal with them anymore, old horses, bancrupt farmers' horses, etc., then malnourish them and try to sell them for a higher price. It's disgusting, and many of them end up slaugthered after all - when the gypsies can't sell some of them - or, if they are lucky and bought by good owners, they still present various health and mental problems, because the gypsies' training methods are far and wide known around here as plain brutal... Sadly, horse protection is at a low level here, so nobody can really do anything to help them.
