Texted BO why pony in barn, well apparently when I left him the field yesterday he snuck out under a gate decimated the hay shed and was caught by neighbors down the street. Thank goodness as there are 2 busy streets on either end of ours. Go him back put him in paddock, in the night he escaped yet again and was found in the hay shed. He is one smart pony and crafty as can be. Sheesh.
Now who is the dumb animal. Can't even contain a horse. Hahahah

A friend of ours horse when tied will work on the rope until it has undone the knot, then stand and wait and mayby move a yard or two. Just to demonstrate If I wanted to go I could. Horse, a much under estermated animal.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Hi all, havn't been on much this week, been licking my wounds and feeling stupid and sorry for myself.

The week started great, (monday) I went to the barn lunged my horse and waited for my "trainer" (same guy who was "selling" me the horse.) to come to the arena. Lunging went great, he's a quick learner, he is green broke btw, didn't even know a mounting block or arena until I introduced it to him.

The trainer rode him for me (I told him sale would be final upon seeing that he's at least broke to saddle. And yes I did leave a deposit.) Everything was beautiful, super well behaved, I had to walk next to the trainer because Valentino kept looking for me and trying to stop.

I brought him in, gave him a quick bath, put him in his stall, pulled out cash and told the "trainer" "I gave you $200, balance owing is 1300$, here you go." He said to me "OOOH nooo I said $15000 not $1500, that doesnt even cover his breeding fee!" I told him no way. 3 min later he said "i'll drop the price to 12k, best I can do, I don't want to break your heart I see how attached you two got already" Told him no, I refuse to pay 12k for a green broke paperless horse when he had told me $1500. Told me that I must have misheard him.......

He is a purebred Thoroughbred gelding, no papers, green broke, I asked him 3 times when he was brought in $1500!? Yes he's going cheap said the trainer $1500, and when asked why so cheap, "he knows nothing" said the trainer.

He is being kicked out of the barn as trainer and caregiver and the BO is taking over, the horse was bred and raised by his brother (brother has both parents, so no breeding fee involved), he has nowhere to go (the trainer) except to one of his brothers that will give him a roof over his head. So because of him getting booted, the "trainer" tried to milk me for $$ thinking because im so attached already and so is tino, I would fork over 15k eyes closed.

I hate HATE people that try to take advantage of others, I was sick to my stomach for days after. I had someone with me who heard the same $$ quoted that I did, i'm not losing my marbles just yet lol. Made a mental note to get it in writing next time.....less chance of getting a broken heart and screwed that way. And there is the sad ending to my horrid week.

Time to horse shop again.....le sigh..

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

Oh no! Sorry to hear about this, especially when you were starting to bond. Some people make me just shake my head.

I wouldn't recommend ever using a bareback pad with stirrups. They tend to give the rider a false sense of security. Better to use one without stirrups in my opinion.
