I would guess the exact opposite, kitten_Val
. 25 horses, none even halter broke, I would say that the owner likely had good intentions by taking them in, but hasn't done a thing with them since. Hence my second guess is that the majority haven't had their feet trimmed or been given vaccs or dewormer either unless they have a squeeze chute and rotating table (for feet) - which is rather spendy.

, I get the feeling that you want the best for these horses, but my gut is saying that the owner is standing in your way of doing just that. There are ways to halter break horses or get them in a stock trailer if they aren't halter broke; it sounds to me like the owner is making excuses. What irritates me is that this woman took these horses in, but hasn't done a thing with them. Her personal situation is terrible, and I feel badly for her, but unless she bought all 25 at once and then very very soon afterwards got her diagnosis, I'm having a hard time with the situation. You do not wake up one morning with 25 horses and no means to care for them. You do not take 25 horses in without knowing how you're going to get them cared for with farrier and vet care, and without facilities in place to facilitate such training. Countrygal892000
, I think you're being awfully generous to take them one by one to a proper facility to get them trained up, and hopefully rehomed. I wish you all the best, and hope that the owner of these horses comes to realize that you're doing her a giant favor that most other people wouldn't.
