Help me help Tiger Lily?!
My neighbors at my dads house, have horses. They abuse them. They teach them to dance by whipping their legs until they bleed, they don't ever groom them, one stall had 6" deep of manure - I cleaned it up. They ride in a very harsh bit - the name escapes me at the moment. They breed this mate yearly, nice enough mare. I get the feeling she'd be great if she was away from them. Whenever they mount up, they spin basically for at Least 5 minutes. 2 years back, she had a stunning lil filly I've grown extremely close to. I can't pronounce her name, but I call her Tiger Lily and she responds. Shes pretty as a lily, but feisty as a tiger. She knows when you need her but is also playful and sweet and has a stubborn streak to rival a mule! So, im lookin for a horse. I was gonna ask to buy her but one day she went missing. Never was told why. Shes back now - they lent her out. Anyways, she's such an amazing filly. They're starting to break her to saddle. How can I convince them to sell her to me?! They care about $ - not their animals. I connected a link to the photobucket album where I have a LOT of pics of her! Flip through the photos - you know you want to!! So, help me help her?! Please??Ąt=ee88fa58.jpg&evt=user_media_share

Are you asking for money to buy her??

MisssMarie 02-27-2012 11:48 PM

No!! I can afford to pay for her - I need arguments to get them to sell her to me

what are the people doing with them just breeding? make them an offer and tell them that the market is down and the cost of feed is going up fast so if they were smart they would sell them to somebody fast then offer to buy

They breed to their friends stallion, sometimes race them in local races - those are the ones I pity most - breed them every year startin at 2 years old, or auction them or send them to slaughter. They want to keep her as a race horse. Meaning she'll live 5 years - that's the oldest race horse they had. Then it's breed once then slaughter house

BTW - in the pic with 3 horses, the palomino is her ma, she's only 8, never seen a vet, and she looks like she's on her way out the door. The bay is her full sister, a year younger. Shes being sold

Didn't work for me either.

She's beautiful, what a gorgeous face. If/when you make them an offer, think of the absolute highest you'd consider paying but offer less than that; that way if they refuse, you can increase your offer without going over your limit. Thats the only advice I've got, and if still no luck, report the abuse and hope the authorities or someone gets them out of there :(
