    Keep in mind that I'm not married and I'm 19, but I think what Beautiful Bay said is fair. If he really likes them, then he should want to help and if he want's to keep so many, I don't think it's fair to have you do all of the work.

    Herein lies your problem. In this market, how do you expect to sell 5 unbroken wild horses? You said a couple of them are mustangs. Did you get them from the BLM? If so, you MAY be able to contact them to take them back. I don't know if they will, but you could try. You may have better luck with the babies.

    I would try talking to him. Let him know that you feel he has broken his deal regarding taking care of/training the horses. Give him X amount of time to train them. (or at least start) and if he hasn't honestly tried to work with them, and help take care of them, then you will get rid of them. And stick to it.

    No tx there NOT blm horses....these horses came from a pretty deploreable place....just before the cattle trucks came to take about 150 head of horses off to the sluaghter house, my husband and I manage to save about 15 horses, it was discusting walking through pastures with freshley dead foals or horses, bones where every where...it's a sight iI NEVER WANT TO SEE AGAIN but my husband told me it was the southern way of keeping lage herds. I choose 2 mares from one part of the pasture that "didn't " have any stallions in that area....they came home very thin and untrusting and droped foals with in 3 weeks of comming home ( abby is one of them) I also took a very thin and sick paint home that we nursed back to health.....some one dumped him there because he was blind in one eye and thought he would be better off to die there, he was the sweetest horse i've ever owned and lived out the rest of his life on our farm till last summer when he pasted away under he faveroit shaddy tree....we guess that he was in his late 30's, the other horses that we found home for are all doing fine...most too are pasture pets....i'm trying to cut a deal with a local ranch who has a wild west show to take 2 of my mares for the ranch shows and in return they can brake them for me, i'm still not sure where will happen to the 3 other ones but I know for sure that they will never end up where the moms started

    People do that!!!
    Good on you for saving some...!
    You will notice a difference if two go to the wild west show, it wont seem so busy and maybe hubby will feel less pressured and get on board and start one and then you will only have the two to train later. Things look like they are on the up already! :)
