    Almost makes me wish she'd try to bite me like her dam so I wouldn't feel the worst person ever, only a horrible person

    Soonest she can be mine is April 15 due to barn and all that... So, I do have one stupid beginner question though. How do I find a saddle that will fit her right - for training, not riding. Should I put off getting one until she's older? I have never fit a saddle to a horse. My lease horse came with tack and all other horses have tack already. So, not sure on that one as i've never fit one :/ thanks

    MissMarie, these people are so beyond low - I'm a mild-mannered person, but this is the bottom of the barrel. What I would do is simply this : continue with your excellent plan of saving to buy this horse a.s.a.p., then be done with them directly. Feel wonderful you have saved another horse from a terrible fate of abuse, and spoil her, love her, ride her, and be proud of it! I am sensing that possibly there are too many cases where you live that the authorities won't take it seriously? Where I live, if someone had to call even twice on a situation like that, the owners would be in jail, and the horses cared for by horse rescue. Immediately. Nonetheless, just focus on getting this horse, and give her a wonderful life. I don't know how old you are, but assertiveness gets better with age-what I mean by that is, many horse people here would be calling the animal control so often, that they'd do something just out of sheer pressure! Good for you in what you're doing, and good luck!!!! :)

    I would consult someone you really trust at the barn to guide you about the saddle, and maybe also get you a really good deal! :)

    If it was about $$, I'd have her end of the month, I've been saving long enough. I turn 18 on April 14, so that's when she can legally be mine. I called animal control weekly for 4 months about them. There are worse cases and the shelter is full to the brim, there are no rescues to take them, so that's why nothin has been done. It kills me every day knowing what they do. What kills me worst is the puppies. Putting a rubber band on the tail so tight it dies and falls off?! Those poor pups cry from pain and there's NOTHING I can do

    So, I'm thinking About the tests I want to do/have done and here's what I came up with:
    -HYPP
    -HERDA
    -GBED
    -Cerebellar Abiotrophy Screening Test (CA)
    And just for fun:
    -Dun Zygosity
    -Red Factor
    -Agouti Factor

    That's $250 - or one and a half weeks of work
