I just got back from the barn that I keep 2 of my horses at and I am ready to strangle someone.
So, I went out for Remedy and Ebony's farrier appointment and the farriers told me that they were scheduled to do the other horse. I havent met the owners yet, so I decided to take the chance and stay to meet them. The showed up twenty minutes late for their appointment and started yelling at the farrier because he started with out them. (In the contract with the farrier it says if owner isnt present they are allowed to begin) After everyone cooled down, I kindly introduced myself to the younger lady, and she immediately said, "Youre the one with the crazy skinny horse. Get your horse trained for christ sake you're going to get someone killed." Uhm.....
<Well, Remedy is a slaughter rescue and we are working with a vet to get his weight up after he had several medical problems that stopped him from gaining weight.>
I responded with a stark look and, "excuse me? What the hell are you talking about"
She proceeded to tell me that she has been trying to RIDE MY HORSE!
She told me that several times she managed to get on and he proceeded to buck her off.
<At the moment, we are treating him for a severly out of line back and he has had daily chiropracter appointments. And he is not to be ridden because it will cause it to get worse.>
SO, I tried my best to keep calm and explain to her everything that is going on with him.
THEN! She told me that I was just "making excuses for having an out of control horse" and THEN she told me that "its all good though because she believes she has found the right bit to use" and pulled out one of the bicycle chain bits out of her tack trunk.
So, by now I have lost all sense of control and I am screaming at her to neer touch my horse again and that I will sue her if she does.
She CALLED HER MOTHER. And now her mother is threatening legal action. Uhm, are you kidding?????????
Anyways back to the point of the post, (besides ranting) I was wondering what everyone thought of the situation and what you all thought I should do about it.
OH AND THANK YOU FOR READING THIS NOVEL!!!!!
