Free leasing my sister's malnurished gelding...
As the title says, I am currently free leasing my SISTER'S malnurished and neglected gelding.
She is the reason why he's like this. Lets get that out of the way.
I'm tired of seeing such a wonderful horse waste away in a stall. He's never fed, watered, groomed or cared for properly under her care. Hell, half the time, he isn't even fed or watered!
So today, I asked her if I could lease him, she said yes.
Do you think I did the right thing by "rescueing" him?
I understand that I shouldn't get too attached because after all, he is her horse. I just wanted to help him. Point blank. Not to help my sister through her laziness, or to showboat.
This horse needs HELP!
Also, he had a massive absess on his whithers that someone at our barn, unannounced to I or my sister, lanced and alouded to drain. The absess is still there and I know I need to contact a vet but what can I do? Clean it, anything of that nature?
I don't mean to sound or act like some horsie hero but this horse is just such a wonderful soul that I couldn't stop myself from jumping in.
