Great news! I just got a pay raise! This will help me get her faster!! I'm so happy! I can't tell my brother though. He just got a pay raise to $10 and he's been working 4 years. I've been working 3 months and I make $10.50 now

Thanks! It's good work, and Its part time, i'll still have plenty of time for her WHEN I get her. How can I trailer break enough to be okay on the hour long trip to what will be home? I'll have a few hours to do it

I hope with all my heart you can get this horse and take her from such nightmare owners-I just saw this thread, and am still reeling from the shock of what you originally described.(bleeding legs? Inexcusible!!!) My first thought was, "Why hasn't anyone reported this to the local horse rescue???" And this has been going on for years?? It sounds like many there are so accustomed to these monsters that call themselves "horseowners", that it's just shrugged off. I'm not in any way saying this about you-what an awesome perspective you have that someone needs to rescue at least one, and as I've said, I hope you get her!!! By the way, there is anonymity in calling the authorities about animal abuse, and most states have awesome horse rescues!! Something to think about and share with the community.... Best of luck! There'll be a lucky horse to have you as their owner! :)

It's a cultural thing. No way to stop it. Sorry but it's true.

Is she halter broke?

Please have someone experienced there with you. Have hay in the trailer waiting for her, make it seem bright and inviting.

A good exercise is the "sending" exercise.

Here's a really cool video I just found.

I personally saw to it that she was halter broken, and she trusts me completely and will do anything I ask of her. Theres a nice arena just down the road where I can work with her. Animal control does nothing sadly. My goal is to at least get her out of there

Alright well I hope you can get her into the trailer. If not, there's always the option of backing it into her pen and letting her go in there freely, then closing the doors up.

As soon as you can, I recommend getting her an apt with a vet to see if she needs anything and find a farrier and horsey chiro and saddle fitter for when you need them. Better prepared than scrambling last minute.

Subbing and hoping that you get to buy her! Sorry I can't see any pictures of her..

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
