Thankyou everyone, i thought having the hooves sorted may help but i was told by my friends that basically i didnt know what i was on about and it was an over reach and nothing can ever be done to sort it and that we have basically ruined her.. I'm going to get a different farrier not the previous owners farrier to sort her and hope that works. i will take pictures of her hooves tomorrow and post them. :) Shes such a lovely placid horse and brilliant for my kids. When i bought her (for the kids) i got told that she would be perfect, now they are telling me they wouldn't even put theirs on her and ask me how much i want for her. SHES NOT FORSALE YOU AREN'T HAVING HER BACK!!! She's mine and i'm fixing her :) They made me feel like she was a lost cause saying shes ruined and that shes worth 100 in MEAT!!!!

thankyou, my friend has her passport they have only just got it. She says shes the one who broke her in and the only one to ride her until we got her. We have restricted her diet alot. They didnt mention anything about vetting they just made out she was the best thing since sliced bread and that she would be brill as we are all learning. Now they are saying the complete opposite :(

Can you somehow get rid of those "friends"? They aren't doing you or the horse any good. When people on the internet have much better advice than your "friends", that's a clue.

At minimum, don't believe a thing they say, because they sound totally full of it.

Getting rid of these 'friends' is definitely an option. We was being told how to break our other horse in and was told "jump on it" my partner did and got chucked off afew times. I then took to the internet thinking this isnt right and we have taken things into our own hands at getting our baby cob properly broke in and balanced. I am disappointed in myself for relying on friends and trusting them with our money. I am however glad i got her so i can save her and get her the correct treatment, you cannot put a price on health. All they say is why waste money on a vet??? i don't think i know these people after all. They deserve looking after just like my kids!

There's something odd about these 'friends' - as in they might not be very good friends!!
If they only just got her passport that would mean they only just got her as a passport should be changed to a new owner at purchase. If they broke her and rode her they should have had it when they bought her - or have they not had her very long?
I'm wondering if she was a rescue at some time and so not passported at birth?
I would get the vet to check for a micro-chip when they come to look at her splints
You also need to have that passport in your possession.


You should get her away from these people.

Just winging it is not a plan

apparently they have had her since birth. They are now saying the horse throws a shoe when its not controlled properly. My head is fried. As soon as i mentioned i was getting a vet to look at her they got very defensive which is raising alot of questions. Maybe they dont want me to know the splints were already there and that the horse was not worth what i paid and is worth more than 100 which is basically what they are trying to drill into our heads so we sell her to them.

This all just seems so bizarre.

That's... really my only input here, other than following along as this unfolds.

I don't think these "friends" of yours are friends at all, and I don't think they ever had your interests or your horse's best interests at heart at any point in this deal. :( I think them getting defensive about you calling out a vet to check her out is them being worried that some unsavory info will come to light and you will want to ask them for some money back. Perhaps they discovered at some point that she is actually worth more (based on bloodlines or performance history, perhaps) than what they sold her for and they are trying every trick in the book to get you to sell her back so they can resell her for an even greater profit? Who knows. Everything about what your "friends" are saying and doing is extremely fishy and I would stay far, far away from them.

At this point I would make sure you have all legal paperwork in hand that the horse is legally yours now and not theirs. Based on the vet's exam it's really up to you on what you decide to do at that point and if the horse is doing well for you and your family then I think you should keep her and definitely dump your friends. I think if she were to wind up back with them her fate would be sealed. :( I think with you she has a much better chance at a happier, healthier life, regardless of her worth or how much you paid for her. It may wind up being a bit of a loss on your end money-wise but again if she is working out well for you and you can still get many good riding years and companion years out of her then she may be worth it.

Keep the horse, dump the friends.

Just how old is this baby cob that they said to just "jump on it"? I'd ditch that set ASAP and work on getting your girl straight. She's such a pretty one.
