my stupid bleeding heart...lol

I have a horse being dropped off at my farm this week. She is 10 years old, was a perfect trail horse..... then they sent her off to be bred... after she foaled they tried to ride her and she won't turn right. They sent her to an abusive cowboy (horse expert my ...) and she came back even more screwy. So they were planning to dump her at auction (which pretty much would guarantee she'd go to mexico for slaughter). So I volunteered to fix her.

I have some time set aside for horses every day, and I trained all 4 of our (including a 2 year old never handled WILD mustang)horses. I just couldn't stand that they'd let such a nice horse go to slaughter simply because they are too abusive to convince her to turn right.... At a couple of points they tied her head to the right and tried to force it.... All they successfully did was bloody the crap out of her mouth. UGH!

So, she arrives this week. Wish me luck, and thanks for listening to my rant! Lol

Thank God for you... seriously. I wish more people would do what they could to let animals live, despite how convenient or inconvenient it was.

I promise I'll post some pics and updates. She should be here Wednesday I think (I'm not sure which day they plan to drop her off.)

She arrived today. Here she is, and she is now comming to me nicely (owners said she's impossible to catch) they left that crappy halter on her, I removed it after they left. Wish me luck!

Re: my stupid bleeding heart...lol

O.M.G..l was sick reading your post l also have years of experiance working with horses, my first thought was that it was not that she didn,t want to turn more likely she has a injury that stops her from turning ! I guess u are thinking the same have her back checked , neck ect by chiropractor . l have found (Bowen )
Equine muscle release therapy ! helps well if an experienced person apply,s all the best l wish you and her well ...

Re: my stupid bleeding heart...lol

Yep I used to own horses and this breaks my heart . What a bunch of idiots . If you abused me everyday I would not come to you either . End of story . God please tell me you are not going to return her to them . Can you afford to purchase her and then find a good home if you can ? I worry about her going back to those f-ing idiots !!!
