Maybe she just needed the money to buy more horses? Either way, she's a scam artist. BEWARE.

    OOOppps!!

    This is the one I don't get....


    I really understand how you all see this, however, please understand that it's just a matter of the horse not being offered to her.

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.
    It seems you have changed the amount of what you do vs what the MIL does from when you originally posted.

    Not that I do not believe you, but we were going on what you posted.

    And honestly, it does not matter WHAT she wants a horse for. Geez. If she likes them and lawn ornaments that is her business. As of right now it is her property.

    You can still get the horse by:

    1. Offering the MIL that you will do ALL of the work for all of the horses from now on.
    2. Getting the horse and taking it some where else.
    3. Riding the horse where it is at.

    I didn't change the amount of what I do. I just didn't go into as much detail.

    Thanks for your suggestions though.

    Update...

    MIL tells me today to tell Max that she's sorry she has to pass on his offer. If he had offered her the horse before she got her mare she would have taken him. THE HORSE WASN'T OFFERED TO HER!!!!!!!!!

    Have you tried any of the other options that were given? Like seeing if you can simply ride the horse where it is? Or boarding it some where?

    I would take the horse if I could afford board elsewere.

    Its no different then my parents telling me I can't have another animal untill I move out (yes I still live at home at 23 lol.) Yes I would feed and care for it, but its on their property so what ever they say goes, it dosent even have to be fair.

    Nope, not even going to bother with it anymore. I already take care of my horse and hers. And according to everyone on here, that's what I'm suppose to do because it's her property, so she shouldn't have to pay for anything, fencing, barn repairs, feed, clean, brush or even pay vet and farrier for her own horse. Since I'm only one person and there's only 24 hours in a day and I have a job, kids and my own household to run. Having a horse on another property to go take care of too?

    Do you suppose he did offer to her and is trying to save face by leaving that detail out when he talks to you?

    People are tight with funds and do things they would not normally do.

    You put yourself in the position. Honestly I wouldnt board my horse with a family member or close friend. It usually ends up messy and hard to talk about without creating a rift in the relationship.

    Excellent point Sillybunny!

    It is right up there with not selling a used car to family or friends.
