I honestly don't know what to say Carol. I'm just heartbroken you have to sell any of your horses. If I was there I'd come kick your father in law in the butt for firing you and maybe give your husband a boot in the scuffle?
I think since it was his dad that fired you he should help pick up the slack in the finances.
