what should i do
ok i'm really not sure what to do about a matter we have.....last week we were apporched about taking in 2 horses for a few weeks....my husband and i talked about it and said it would be ok for a few weeks to take one of the horses!!! ......after talking with the owner of these 2 horses i have changed my mind all togeather.....she kept refuring her horses as a paint and a appy and sticks buy it because that's what the papers say they were...hhhhmmmmm......the gelding is a appy and the mare is a palameno, i refuesed to take the gelding because of the condition that he is in.....he is all ribs and jugding by the spacing in his ribs
he's some where in his early 20's, the sheriff dept has been after her about the appy...she first stated to me that both horses were seen by a vet (so called enforce by the sheriff dept) but later stated that she had never vetted them....but here's the kicker........i haven't had a boarder on my property for about a year now,( didn't have time for other people horses while trying to raise 3 kids) my rule with my old boarder who repected every thing was that the vet was called when needed and that all shot's and coggin test had to be up to date, well when i told her what my requirements where for her horses to stay with us, she stated that they were all u. t . d on that......hhhmm ok if her horses have not been seen by a vet!! then how can they be u. t. d on there shots???? or even coggins.....she thought that was a coughing disorder...hhhmmm....i have recamended my vet to her...but in the end i have desided to refuese her......in fact our friends have offerd to take abby and star to there farm to hang out in a 1000 acre pasture for the month of augest to give us a little bit of a brake on hay and his grandmother really love's sweet little abby ( lol only if she really knew how she is) and our vet is right around the corner from there so he can keep a closer eye on star who is still on the mend..
