Since the barn owner had an operation the girls have been going up every night to make sure the horses are fed and given water (the guy who is suppposed to be doing that sort of thing usually forgets or just doesn't bother coming). Well one of the girls, whom, though is a decent rider but doesn't know when to get off of a horse (she over works the horse she rides for lessons) went up on Tuesday night to check on them. She said they didn't have too much hay so she gave them a little more.
When I asked her how was Sonny she said he was good, but when she threw his hay in his pasture that Sonny bit her...she also said that because he bit her, she hit him...making him "gallop" around his pasture (I doubt he was galloping...nor even cantering....he couldn't in his pasture...it's wayyy too small).
The thing I'm upset about is her hitting MY horse. Okay it's one thing to do it to the horse she is leasing...but to MY horse. I'm going to talk to her again about it (asking if he really did bite her and what she actually did) and if she admits again that she hit Sonny I'm going to take the matter up with the barn owner and put the rule down that she can't even touch him.
I'm just soooo upset at the moment...I don't know if any of you remember this, but I posted a long time ago about Sonny having REALLY bad trust issues, in his pasture, and just all together...I'm thinking that it was that girl that was causing it. At first I thought it was the BO, but I knew my BO wouldn't do that..but Sonny was always afraid of my BO....well the girl is heavy set (like the BO used to be ....the BO lost LOTS of weight before surgery so she looks ALOT better) and the BO used to be...and now, since the BO has lost weight Sonny isn't as afraid of her as he used to be.
I'm waiting for her to come on-line (on AIM) that way I actually have a COPY of what she says as proof to the BO...the BO would believe me anyways but it will be further more proof if I have to enforce that she isn't allowed to touch Sonny...and I'd let her parents know too what she did and that she wasn't allowed to touch Sonny...I'll just tell her that if Sonny needs to be fed...either get one of the other girls out there to do it or call me and I'll come out and feed him
Anyone think I'm over reacting?
