Well, thats over thank goodness! My friend finally called and came over today, and her reaction was like, "No laminitis? Well thats good!" Then I explained how much stress and grief her "instructor" friend had caused, and said I do not want the woman here again! She took it quite well, didn't defend her or try to sway my decision, she just simply agreed and we carried on as usual from there... I am a little suspicious though because she worships the woman's opinion and just spent 4 days with her on a horsey trip. People can be so odd, no wonder I prefer horses!
