Some one please tell me why I'm flaming crazy.
Err I think I am best off with a bullet in the brain and I am possibly too nice for my own good and a push over well hers way.
There is a man that lives maybe 10 miles from me who is just getting back into ponies after being banned for 10 years (why anyone sold him a pony I do not know), anyway he was helping someone else I was helping just before he got his ponies so when he first got them I did the feet of one mare and a little bit of basic halter breaking/work with the pair of them and the other mare was too dangerous to go near, so we put her in my trailer and took her to my place for me to work with, it became quite clear that that poor mare has been abused at some point in the past and the person now owning her was not willing to do any follow up work so I did a bit more halter work and got her over her fear of trailers (she was scared of just about everything particularly trailers, people and gates) and sent her back she is a mare that needs a lot of one to one and a long while to build up trust with some one she was also 7 at the time and in foal so it would be a miracle for her to come right.
After that I tried my best to have nothing to do with him as I feel he is going to end up where he was before because he keeps getting more ponies and isn't imo looking after them well enough and is putting them in foal when though most aren't even halter broken. Anyway today he messages me saying he has hurt his wrist and that the ponies desperately need their hooves doing (I doubt he has ever done them in the year he has had them), which because like I said I am too kind or a push over or both I agreed I'll do them and I'll arrange a day/time my mum can take me over as I haven't learned to drive (cars terrify me). I'm saying I'm doing it for the welfare for the ponies but I don't know if that is really a good enough reason for me to possibly get seriously hurt as like I thought he hasn't done anything with his ponies and they now have foals mix in the fact I have a lower bone density then most so my bones break easier then most people and that my wrists, elbows and back are screwed up and I sometimes struggle to do my well behaved ponies feet I really have decided I am mental for agree.
So like I said some one please shoot me.
I'm sorry for the nonsense rambling I really needed somewhere that is not facebook to vent.
