My questions about a lease are with vet/farrier care. He is not a horse you can let go past the 5 week mark as far as trimming his feet and I never slack on my vaccines or wormings. Is there anyway that I could incoorperate those things into a lease??? That I will still be responsible for vet/farrier/wormings? Or would that be stepping on someones toes a little too much.
The thing with doing an onsite lease would be my other horses. I would need to keep him seperate due to the fact my alpha mare can be pretty nasty to people that are timid/or inexperienced.
Riding him after the baby is born is up in the air completely. As long as no more damage had been sustained to my back then yes I can ride him but the amount of pain from my sciatic nerve will be questionable. I would like to hope that after the baby is born and I can get my weight back down and into much better physical shape that I will be able to do short rides on him.
I wouldnt "sell" or lease him to just anyone. It would have to be a reputable riding facility or it really wouldnt be worth it.
Now, there is an older (by older I mean 70yo) lady about an hour from me looking for a yard pet. LoL Now, he would really LOVE that as all he would do is get petted and get to eat treats all day.
I have never ponied him so that one I am not sure about. I have actually never ponied another horse without a rider on them.
