Honestly - I don't see how this is possible if she is so crippled?

She's not your horse, and therefore its not your job to "get rid of the crippled mare.." Honestly, you should be taking it to your advantage she distracts the geldings, it shows you what you need to work on with the geldings. And it also shows that you aren't "training" them if they act up around her. Are you supposed to be training the mare? If you are, you are doing a fantastic job, since she runs you over and kicks you.

Welcome to the forum.

Coz heaven forbid anybody ever keep a horse who isn't 'useful'!

Ugh! Sounds to me like the issues lie with you, not the 'useless crippled' mare.

I have a crippled mare. Sometimes she tries to bully me because she doesn't get handled much so I remind her that I'm in charge. Sometimes the boys behave like boys because she's a sexy little thang but the boys have been taught manners and they know how to behave for their handler/rider...

Maybe you should get some help from a professional trainer so that you can handle these horses?

As for the mare. If your boss is owns her and pays for her keep and cares for her, then what business is it of yours...

Poor mare, I think you should be gone and he should find new help around the place. You say she can't keep weight on but yet she's fat? My trainer has two yearlings taht can't be ridden that are crippled and he keeps them around with the other horses yet he doesnt complain. If his wife and daughter love this mare I don't think she's going anywhere but you might.

To some people are horse just isn't a "horse" , it's a best friend , a child , a member of the family ! I don't care if my horses came up lame , I would keep them no matter what and I would be ****ed if someone told me to get rid of them ! When you have a passion for horses you just don't see them has something to do ! Ugh , I hope he puts you in your place !

Soooooo ... welcome to the forum! We are an opinionated bunch, aren't we??

I do agree with the rest, but wanted to add:

It doesn't really sound like you are in this for the horses, or for the people. So that makes it sound like you are only in this for YOU.

If you've been there for as long as you say, and you are still this unhappy and frustrated, get out. If these folks are paying you and you are not able to properly work with these horses, get out.

You've been there long enough that you MUST be getting SOMETHING out of it ....

You other thread by the way is almost as good as this one ! I really don't think you know what you are doing or what respect is !

How did some one that seems to have such little knowlage on how to handel a horse, get a job like that?

Seriously, why can't you control the other horses? If you can't handle a gelding with the hots for a mare, I hope you never get any where near a stud.
