ya i have been looking into buying my own lately..the lady has been telling me that all of her shots and ferrier things have been done...i think different and the lady were i board her now thinks different too and i feel that the lady i am leasing her from is lying to us because she said she had all of it done a week ago...now i feel bad because i want whats best for the horse and i want the horse to be loving life not in pain with her hooves and not up to date on her shots...the place i am borading her at says they can do it for me for a good price but the lady that i am leasing her at insists its been done so she wont let me...its getting extremely irrating but i dont want to give up on the horse or leave her with the crazy lady that isnt taking care of her stuff..
thats the recent problems with the owner..
i have tried talking to her a little bit but like i said she thinks she knows everything and is extremely stubborn..
the horse loves me and walks right up to me and not the owner and it melts my heart...and im worried about her...but all this worrying is causing saddness and anger toward the owner because i cant make sure the horse is healthy wihtout her permission..

Is there anything in your boarding contract requiring current shots and farrier work? If so, maybe your BO could demand receipts from the owner to prove she really gave her the shots and had a farrier out.

I could definitely understand not giving shots if the horse really just had shots done (double dosing can't be good for the horse), but you might still be able to get a farrier out - unless your contract prohibits you from providing basic care . Even if she did have her hooves done, if the horse is in pain, then she obviously needs more attention to her hooves. I wouldn't challenge the owners honesty at this point, I'd just get a different farrier out, and if she objects point out that you can't ride a lame horse, and she obviously needed more attention because she is in pain.

Long term, you're probably going to have to buy this horse, or give up on your lease . The way you describe the owner, makes her sound dishonest and crazy, definitely someone you don't want to be connected to for very long.

so new news on the boarding situation..
the lady where we are boarding the horse and the owner got into a big arguement because the owner was being rude,disrespectful, and not corroporating with the boarding lady..so there was drama with them and then,because both kept calling and complaining and acting childish i told the borading lady to let the owner take the horse and i would end my lease...i love the horse but i cant take all the risks (espically if she is going every morning doing round pin work and etc because i didnt know she was going over there until this day and if anything happens to the horse the owner is the type that will try and blame it on me and i do nothing but love the horse,train etc..) i weould bever hurt her or over over work her...
so we looked at a horse this morning and i think were gunna buy him only $500 and we checked himm out medically etc he is so goregous!..

thank u all for helping so much!!!

Put yourself in her shoes. If that was my horse then I would be doing the same thing.

It sounds like the stress was definitely not worth it - even if you really liked that mare. Congratz on the new horse (yay for peace of mind and a horse ), now we need pictures !!

I dunno, White Foot. If I had a full lease on an animal, I'd expect it to be mine during the time I was paying to lease, not have the owner come out and work it whenever they felt like it.

That's more like a partial lease, and it seems this woman had a hard time realizing if she's receiving money for a full lease, she needs to back off and give the leasee some space.

Coming on occasion to visit the horse is fine. Showing up every day and working the animal in a way that might be detrimental to what the leasee is trying to do, is not.

In any case, the drama llama's gone and took her horse with her.

OP, good luck with finding your own horse. There's no greater feeling than knowing the horse you're riding is yours, and no one can take it away from you.
