    Seriously - If you have not been in the position to be 100% responsible for horses 24/7 - 365, including the financial end of things - you really don't understand.

    Take your heart out of the equation and really think about it.

    STOP YOU GUYS! GROW UP!
    Redneckprincess wanted to vent, she did everyone has stated their views, so stop being nasty to each other. If you don't agree with something someone types state your reason and go on and grow up. The nasty, smartbutt replys take up to much time, if you have that much free time on your hands you need a job, my time is precious I come on here to get info., tips, information, ideas to better myself and my horses, but I think some get on here just so they can show how much they know by putting down what someone else does or how they do it. They don't want to help they just want to stomp on and make fun of the way someone else does it. If your just going to criticize and NOT try to help, just don't post.
    I'm not talking just about this thread, I've been thinking this for a while but this thread just hit me at the wrong time. Sorry if I hurt someones feelings, but come on.

    Until this move to Indiana I was responsible for my horses care 24/7 including all financial, vetinary and day to day care.

    Unfortunately now I am at the mercy of BOs, all three stables I've suffered through so far have had either abusive or neglectful BOs, and now this one has outrageous rules that change every 24 hours.

    I wish I was joking. The fencing is substandard at best (would almost prefer barbed wire), there is nowhere to store hay, bedding or dispose of manure, so a stall gets crammed with bedding and hay and the manure gets dumped back into the pastures. The current BO I have is so bizarre that yes I would call her and will continue to call her psychotic and have done to her face.

    I am not some 16 year old pony-crazed girl stamping my foot at the wrong doings of the world. While I somewhat agree with you I also see the OP's side of it.

    And you're right, there are three sides to every story, my side, her side and the truth.

    ADG - What does you not being able to find yourself a good boarding barn have anything to do with the OPs MIL not wanting to have to take care of another horse for the OP?



    I am sorry you have not been able to find a good boarding barn. That does have to be frustrating.

    Since you used to take 100% care of your horse(s) you do know that it is more work than most people realize. So it should probably make sense to you that the MIL does not want to take on another horse. Add that it is clear that the OP does not really appreciate what she has, only having to do chores part of the time, etc. That too might be part of the reason the MIL does not want to bend over and accept another horse.

    And adding another horse, as I am sure you know, is not just adding another horse.

    I know when my filly was out for training and I was only cleaning up after and feeding one it was like culture shock when she came back home. Double the work. Adding one more horse is lots more work. Lots more wear and tear, lots more supplies, lots more manure to manage, etc.

    The OP has been offered ideas on how to get this horse.


    Edit to add:

    Glad you told me this. I probably would not have known it otherwise. At least not from your posts in this thread. ;)

    AussieDaisyGirl really doesn't have time to take care of any horses now because she and her children "allegedly" just fled the USA to Australia a few days ago with the help of lots of friendly strangers funding her escape from a "bad situation". Maybe she just needed the money to buy more horses? Either way, she's a scam artist. BEWARE.

    OK, everyone. Let me clear a few things up. First off, I have paid for and my husband and I have done all the fencing, barn repairs, mowing and up keep of MIL's property. Including the house. When she passes away, it will be ours anyway. We spend at least two hours there everyday. Some days she does morning feedings before I get there. I have paid the vet and farrier for her horses care along with mine. I have paid for all hay and straw for both horses since their arrival. I also paid 3/4 the cost for her horse when she bought it. Along with the cost for transporting it. She never even rides, let alone brush or do anything else with her mare. I have done all of it. She wanted the horse, as a lawn ornamant, and me do all the work.
    The reason I was ranting is because she's mad the horse wasn't offered to her, so she doesn't want me to have it.

    Why did the thread have to get out of control?
