Hey, no fun. I can't even chime in much on this one, everyone else has said everything...
I love your attitude towards your boss, the snarky comment about him living in times square and then coming there and playing tourist. Sounds like you have an issue with his financial status and since you think you are so much above him in knowledge, he should bow down to you...
grow up and accept your boundries. If you are being paid to be with the horses, then deal with it or quit. I am sure there are plenty of others more than happy to take your job with a much better attitude.

It kinda sounds like she lucked into a job taking care of and "training" someones horses and they aren't experienced enough to know they aren't getting their money's worth ... ?

I am absolutely stunned by this post. Do you really feel it's within your rights to force your employer to sell her horse? If you can't keep the attention of the horse you're working with, don't blame it on the mare, find a new job. From the sound of it, she has been exceedingly generous to keep you on board as paid staff.

I also have to respond to your comment about feeling your evaluation of the horse's lameness is superior to the vet's. Most leg lameness is in the lower leg and hoof, so when it looks to you like it's in the shoulder, the vet is probably right. An injury to the cannon will make the shoulder look off.

Were I you, I'd get my act together and beg someone to get rid of your posting. Ripping apart the way the man paying you chooses to run his business on a public forum? Pretty dumb, if you ask me. This might not be Facebook, but its a pretty popular site.

I'm not truly against people having a better idea of how to do something.. That's how better products and business come about, but I'd keep those feelings to myself until I could afford to find myself without a job, or better yet, had the collateral to start my own business.

As to the matter of the "useless crippled mare," who are you to determine that? I've been told many times that its "time to ship my old Paint gelding out," as he's just a big pasture ornament now.. But I would never consider getting rid of him.. Were I in a position to only feed one horse instead of four, he'd be the one I wouldn't try and find a new home for. If he's taking care of this mare, be that by doing so himself or paying someone else (you, of all people) to, then you should just zip those lips and get to work.

I completely agree with everyone on here. Also, how would you feel if your boss posted something on here saying how much they wanted to get rid of you? I wouldn't be surprised if that happens now.
You should pull your act together, because you are lucky you still have the job after this. Maybe someone here knows your boss? Maybe they told them about this? You wouldn't be able to know unless your boss or someone else told you....
Not smart

Completely forgot this was a male we were talking about, pretend all the "her"s are "him"s

HOLY SMOKE!! That my friends it what is commonly called a B$%&H Slap...lol you all really worked him over. Makes me want to run and hide in the corner. But yeah gotta agree, not an employees place to convince the owner to get rid of the horse, it is however his job to completely inform his employer as to the ruckus she is causing.... and if asked to advise what to do... otherwise tug on your tighty whiteys and cowboy up....
