Also, he didn't intentionally put her in with all of them. She somehow escaped from her pen (which, really, isn't very big) and they had to herd her through the gate into the main pasture to get her back into her pen. She was only in with them for 15 minutes but in that short time she managed to get beat up pretty bad and has quite a few cuts .. as soon as he opened the door to her pen she made a beeline for it and ran right in. Her pen is made up of roundpen panels. He told me before I left that he was going to put them up on the side that was just wire fencing but I guess he didn't.

again...you're dealing with people that don't know what they're doing. Get her moved somewhere that's safe and find someone to work with her AND YOU.

Well I'm going to try my luck with this trainer and hopefully everything will work out!

Holy! I told my BO that I would be taking her to a trainers for one month of ground work and would probably be finding another place to board and this is the email he sent me:

Here is what I think. You should return that horse and get your money back. If you paid more than two hundred dollars (meat value) you paid too much.
When you buy a horse you should be able to walk out to it and put the halter on. Prim is not worth it for YOU. I am trying to make a living here and the legitimate expense
Of fuel for driving to pick up Prim was $80.00 and if you rented a trailer for one day it is $100.00! I fully was counting on you to board the horse here and I have reduced my rate from $250.00 a month to $200.00.
I have decided to call it quits as there are too many women in this industry who don't know what they are doing and expect other people to pay for their poor judgement. You think you are going to lose a bit of money
And I have lost well over a hundred thousand dollars over the last nine years. You must accept the facts of poor judgement on your part and take responsibility for that.

I think your plan for a month with a trainer is a good one.
And getting her out of where she is now is a must!
Good luck and keep us posted.

What a silly BO. The horse industry is fueled more on passion than profits.. blaming it all on women who "don't know what they're doing" is stupid. Also saying you paid more than 'meat value' for a horse that you can't even catch is stupid. No horse is born trained, and some people rather work with a trainer to mold their own horse, rather than take one already 'trained'

To him leaving? Good riddance!!

He shouldn't count on you for anything.. boarders come and go.
