ok so the title is like wow heartless but no, this mare is of no use and constantly undermines my progress with the 4 other geldings that are penned with her, i've tried askin my boss to keep her seperated from them he says ok the next morning i go back and she's been turned loose again. she's also crippled vet says the mri scan shows it in her cannon....i think its in her shoulder the way she walks but he's lisenced what do i know... my boss tells me she's a 5 thousand dollar horse....well she aint anymore and sorry folks that mare i wouldnt give 50 bucks for her mom was a great horse level headed and strong gait. she had that potential then something happend two years ago and she's been limping ever since, she cant hold wieght and all she does is get fat, way too sassy for her own good, and causes the geldings i work to act like stupid teenage boys.
however...this horse holds sentimental value to the bosses wife and daughter
i understand this but when theres not much can be done with her she's a danger to my riders or people simply entering the corral in my opinion she needs to go.
she's run me over a few times and nearly had her hind legs in the middle of my back once or twice....i can handle this, i dont like it, but can. my fear is when i'm not around some kid or the boss or his family will get in there and she'll do what most mares do and end up trampling someone.
i can't get through to my boss he's a business man and finds my advice of little consequence apparently.
and no he knows nothing of horses he lives in times square when he's not up here playing tourist.
any ideas to get him to send her to the sale barn, theres not much the vet has given us advice on for two freakin years now. she needs to be gone for safety of her owners and any riders i have.
any ideas? because i've exhausted my efforts...
