    NONE of my in-laws take me seriously because i'm 'young', they keep assuming I don't know enough. And I agree, they'll get one warning for her and that's it. I can't keep dealing with the recurring injuries when i'm trying to do something (with my horses or not).

    Don't you live in some sort of family compound/group type setting? If I'm remembering correctly.

    You would think. The majority of his family lives on the same road. His grandparents are our neighbors, and so is his dad. His great Aunts live down the hill from us. I guess you could call it that.

    If you have some kind if little pen or something put one cow in it and every time she tries to chase it whip her, she needs a leader!!!

    good luck!!!

    The reason father's don't listen is because to do so means to deal with the issue. Easier to downplay it.

And he told me 'i'm not supposed to be out there with her by myself anymore' just in case something happens again. But who else is going to keep to the feeding schedule?? Don't worry we'll discuss it, and i'll have him bring it to his dads attention or else.
    Thanks i'll need it!
    I don't envy your position but kudos to you for being determined and putting your foot down!! It appears you are the one doing all the work with the horses, so you have all the right in the world to make the decisions...and have your husband put his foot down too.

    Men, maybe, but not most fathers I know who would defend their kids, whether by blood or marriage, to the death. Sorry-not an excuse here.
