Oh my, let me tell you- I am dealing with the same thing, however my friend is 48, has two kids and THREE horses (paint, TWH, and a 6 yr old Spotted Saddle horse) and has been on a 6 month binger (drugs and alcohol), is not coming home, and has left the responsibility of three horses to her 9 year old, her husband, and I (Willy is there too- moving him SOON) - now, I understand the need to party- I can do it like the best of them- but C'MON!!!! Feel bad for the horses....we take great care of them, but they don't get out like they should, and the baby horse is in need of further training. All three are great. They need a companion to love them.
I can't wait to get away from there even though it is an awesome set up, a great family (9 year old Taj is one in a million), and I love those horses. Been caring for them for years part time in exchange for board, and for the past 6 months, entirely.
