I was on the topic. Attack her?? I was posting on what I thought of her foundation. Was that not the topic?? Am I only to agree or have I the right to disagree??
The vet comes and he has to jump through hoops to get near the horse, to work on the horse and we all applaud her and boo the vet???
This is not something to brag about, it is a poor foundation. As for how long she has had the horse? I don't care. I have a history of starting young unhandled pukes, studs and in a week you wouldn't recognize it was the same horse. I have had to tie a young guys head to a post, have my wife play with his lips to nail on 4 shoes the same day he arrived because tomorrow he will be out running trail, like it or not.
Again has she had this horse a week? A month?? Will it be safe for the vet to handle next month???
Kickers, biters, pullers are broke and I use the word broke in the first week. Again is Spiritshorse that new??
I pitty the vet, the farrier, I know she trims herself but I pitty anyone who has to work on the horse.
Call this foundation?? I don't think so. I know so.
You want to talk about foundation?? A young horse caught on an overpass over a big expressway, no sidewalk, no room for more then 2 cars to pass and over 600 feet wide and you get caught right in the middle of the bridge by a snow plow with the blade down, you have a 4 or 5 foot path between the rail which is about ankle height for the rider and a blade scrapping the pavement and you expect, demand the young horse to hold. That is foundation.
