Kinda upset *rant*

So after us buying our mare all I heard was how high the feed was. Horses are useless. It's ridiculous to have a horse. Blah blah blah. This was from my sister in law. Let's call her B.... So this is the story. My horse and my younger sister in laws horse is in pasture together. About an acre is actually mine. The rest mil. So I feed both horses out of my pocket. Except for hay mil buys it. Even trade I feel. So my sis in la B decided she's getting this horse that is being given to her! It is a mini and it is a stud! Oh my gosh! And mil told her she can put it in with our horses!!!I know nothing of minis!!! Also B is not a horse person won't even hardly touch them. She says oh well you can half own it.... What? This horse is 32 inches.... I don't even know what to say or do but, I can't say um your not putting it in with my horse. My acre doesn't have a stall or barn or nothing. It's all on mil..... I am just upset and needed to tell someone cause I can't fuss to mil about it...

You're in a rock and a hard place with family ties, I know how that goes. How is your fencing? You're going to need GREAT fencing to keep minis in, ours were notorious for getting out or knowing when the fence isn't hot. Minis are balls of energy to begin, I couldn't imagine a stud. Do you only have one horse? If the land is YOURS just fence off your acre and keep your horse there maybe?

I would try and get her to look at the pros and cons of things. Minis are a whole different ball game in my opinion, just as it is owning a QH vs a Draft.

It's going to be another burden on your shoulders most likely. Is there anyway they can be talked out of this? Any animal is a big responsibility. A stallion will present it's own problems on top of everything else.

I'm going to call her later and talk about my trainer trimmer coming out Monday and ask if she wants its feet looked at. And tell her how they have a higher chance of found so it will need looked at more often probably than our horses.

I would also be worried about him breeding your mare. They may not have thought about that but it is possible.

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

I told her mares get in ditches lay down whatever... If they want it they want it. Also she will act up worse with a stud around. I just don't want to be mean about it! Because I don't want to sound like her towards me when I got mine.

I would have a sit down, heart to hear with your MIL. Last thing you want is to have that mini in the same field as your foal, once it actually comes
