Okay, here now. Thanks for all the reply's and listening to my rant. I was so frustrated.."Still am"
But I went down to brush water and ect. Gave my guy a dose of bute..I'll see how he is tomorrow..After thinking about it he may just be tender from not having on shoes now. I had them pulled off and just a trim this go around.
verona You said it..That was my original plan..She does have the option to buy him back if that time ever arrives and ditto on her not having say what I do once I do buy him out right. When I give her the cash her opinions on farrier stuff is out the door, but right now I am leasing so to speak so she can save money and I can gain the money with time to buy.
deserthorsewoman I never thought of a written contract w/her - it never popped in my head because she is family. It was a verbal thing we did..I pay for his feed so she dont have to sell him right away and I work towards payments or what have you till I pay him off..Her only request was that I keep her farrier for him..( I dont think that its his work that she so much loves, its the fact that he is a FAMILY friend to them ) She wants to keep the business going for him. I dont care for the guy or his work..This is a headache
All kinds of things are going through my head today on this.
I thought it would be fine to use her farrier just until I do pay off Jack then do as I will and want to do after...I just have to get through this part.
DuffyDuck What you are saying is funny! Lol I couldnt do that because I had him do my horse for me. I didnt want to be rude..Give him the opportunity without a doubt type thing. But, still without a doubt I am not happy w/his work. (( Call him to do my horse then tell him he got fired from his work/ In return he would of said why then am I working on your horse now?! )) ummmmm because I am stuck in a situation.
I did however make it a point that I am taking over Jack so both horses are and will be mine..My niece will be out of the picture. So he knows and I am sure he has a feeling I will dump him again.
Joe I know its my fault ha ha!! I thought I could get through this situation smooth sailing~ Apparently not.
So, what it boils down to is I need to sell saddle fast to come up w/the cash to get him sooner than I thought..Or just talk to the husband and see if we can just go ahead and buy him now to get through this...As of now my husband does not know what I am going through w/this..He knew the farrier was working on my horse and I told him a bit about the situation, but he dont know all of it yet. I'll tell him to just let me buy him now to get rid of the third wheel and when the saddle sells it can go into our savings..
