Bahaha, I love all of these! 3PaintMares, I wish I could give that lady a piece of my mind! I hate it when someone buys a horse, boards it, and excpects other people to take care of it...and I'm talking about the adorable miss Selah! Her real owner never visits her, the only time she came was when they brought her...and even then, she payed no attention to her! It's like, really!!! Even if you aren't a horse person, who could resist that adorable foal face?!? Erg! Or how people *say* horses are their life, yet they don't know how to ride and hate taking care of their horses! Honestly, why did you buy it if you're going to hate it?

UGH! HATE THOSE PEOPLE! The stables I board has several people like that. They buy a horse just so they can tell people "oh hey I own a horse". Yeah a horse that has to sit in his stall all day, every day except twice a year when they come out with all their friends and family to ride the hell out of that poor horse. Makes me sick to my stomach.

3PaintMares I know exactly how you feel. People are so rude sometimes. They just don't understand that our horses are like our giant fur babies lol you wouldn't ask someone if you could buy their kid!!!

Also non horsey people that see you riding, doing rolls backs and slide stops and think that that's all your horse. No. When your riding you and your horse are a team. Yes my horse is amazing lol but not just any person can get on him and make him perform correctly!

Couldn't agree more, brookeabee! And when a horse starts bucking and you smack them with a whip, it's suddenly abuse and I should have the humane society on me! Ugh!

Trust me Stichy I wanted to, an I bit my tongue so I wouldn't. She's not just "an animal" nor a piece of property. She has feelings/emotions, feels pain, etc. Not something to pass around for the almighty dollar. My relationship with my horses is like a marriage- Till death do us part! My mom and I run our own private barn, so I'm glad I have a place where I know there safe. We do have some boarders and one Ex-boarder did the same thing like Miss Selah as your barn. They had two mares and never say them but maybe one or twice every two weeks or so.
When the vet came out, guess who held their horses? Me! Oh but they would show up an hour or two after the vet left. "whens the vet getting here?" She came an gone already, I held your horses for you." Some may ask why I would hold their horses for the vet? It's simple, for the horses proper health, an yes I'll step in to make sure the horse gets the proper care she or he needs. It's part of the contract we make them sign. Yet their "owners" didn't understand why the mares wanted nothing to do with them. There no longer with us as their daughter leased a barn so they left for her. The last I heard the two horse lost a ton of weight due to the poor hay and food they get. It's really sad ans really ticks me off BIG TIME!! People like this, like you said and I agree. Why have a horse? You all are right just for bragging rights. "oh I have a horse" Makes me so mad!

Yea, and it bugs me! Selah is a needy horse, wants you to love her, loves being around people, etc. Even if you aren't a horse person, how could you resist her?!? I mean look at her!


She came from the wild, it took them 10 MINUTES to get her haltered and trailered...ever since then she's loved humans!

WOW! Selah is a real cutie!! You can't resist her, what a sweetheart. She looks alot like my horse Babe when she was young. Dang I'm getting teared up, I feel bad for her, poor girl. Yes the younglings need all the attention and TLC you can give them. I had Babe and Mea since the day they were born(Gypsy came to me as and adult) I spend every day with them, even running and playing with them.

A pet peeve of mine regarding non-horse people when they say "Oh I rode a horse once, it bucked, jumped over a fence, bit me, kicked me, etc, etc!". They assume all horses are mean, crazy creatures!

Yes I've heard this several times, I just tell'em. "Well not all horses are like that, maybe the horse just didn't like you or you caught them on a bad day." or I get. How do I get a horse to act like yours?" Umm...Spend time with her, an not just an hour a week. You gotta build a bond with them. She(new to horses) was referencing to how lovey dovie my girl is and how she will neigh every time she sees me, from when I first walk into the barn, to even when I walk out of her view for even a minute and come back. She will nicker at me.

My neighbor said she "galloped" a horse on a trail ride while on vacation . . . She showed me a video - the horse was very lazily trotting!

When someone says they rode a horse once and it galloped off on them and it threw them. 99% of the time the horses trotted and they bounced off.
