Now, Max tells me he's not allowed to "sell" the horse. Also, he knows about my Kay's issues and that I haven't been able to ride her. So, he tells me if I want to take the paint, he's mine. I can try him out, see how he does, if it doesn't work out, call him, he'll come get him and we're still friends. I told him I'd have to talk to my MIL as the horse would be on her property, which is around the corner from Max's.
I go tell her the awesome news and she gets mad. (He didn't offer the horse to her) She tells me if I want the paint I have to get rid of Kay She says she's not going to feed and clean up after three horses everyday. Excuse me. I feed at least once a day and clean the barn every other day. She cleans Mon, Wed & Fri. I clean Tues, Thurs, Sat & Sun. I also buy my own horses grain and hay, pay for vet and farrier. She's been after me for a few months, coming up with different reasons to get rid of Kay. Kay is the dominant mare and rules the barn over her 25-30 year old mare. She's always saying I need to get a gelding and let Kay go, because she prefers geldings. I am so frustrated with trying to deal with her. Now I have to pass on the paint, who would be a awesome horse for me. BUT, if Max was to go down and tell her that SHE could have him, he would be moved on to her property that same day!!!!!!!!
