Angry Venting

Comet was staying in today due to the rain and the slippery ground which irritated his bad stifle. He had been really bad the day before and was forced to keep him in because of the mud/slippery wet clay. After a night in the barn, he was feeling better. I always tell my family what is going on with the horses. Even the little things.
So I go out to give Comet his supper and he was GONE. Papa let him out in the pasture without consulting me first and he got hurt again because of the slippery ground. To top it all off, he was wearing his COOLER which he was all twisted up in. It was SOAKED and PLASTERED with mud. Was wearing his ROPE halter which he could have gotten a foot caught in. Legs were all swollen. Sopping wet and shivering with the wet dirty cooler. I am BEYOND pissed. I tell him time and time again that if one of the horses are in or in any other arrangement, then they are like that for a REASON and leave them ALONE. I get NO respect. He needs to leave the horses to me because he doesn't know what the hell he is doing. And this isn't the first time Comet has gotten hurt because of him. Last time he got tied up to a picket fence on the LUNGE LINE and he got all caught up and had a 3 inch GASH all the way around his leg. You would think he would have learned after that >.<

Can you padlock the stall?

That kind of stuff makes me so angry. Glad I'm an adult so can generally avoid other people interfering. Though don't have a horse yet, so I'm sure I could have the same issues at a boarding place if I did.

Sorry, op. That sounds really frustrating.

Not sure I understand why your dad would do this when you say you told him not to do anything without consulting you first....

Is he doing these things on purpose or is he genuinely trying to help you?

I think he was thinking of Comet but hard to believe since I told him not to

And now that he is injured worse than before, he needs to see a chiro.

Do you have any random tack lying around that you can sell off? That's what I did when my boy needed chiro a few years ago and it wasn't in the 'horse health' budget at that time, ontop of vet and farrier. You'd be amazed at what people will buy, things you say 'who would ever want /that/'.

Can you sit your (dad?) down and talk to him? Explain to him what happened? I don't think you should lock the stall, but maybe you could put some kind of lock on the pasture? So there's no where for him to put the horse next time...

I have a few things but not anything that would amount to much. I have written papa (grandfather) a letter. He read it and promised he wouldn't do it again. I couldn't lock Comet in the barn because if there was an emergency, I might not get him out fast enough or at all. Locking the pasture doesn't do any good because he has bolt cutters

That is awful, I am so sorry. I hope your boy feels better.
