Horse across the fence..

Postby peg4x4 » Thu Aug 31, 2006 4:43 pm

The folks behind me had a racehorse stable.They'v sold out, keeping 2 horses..The sorrel is ok,but the liver chestnut is driveing me nuts--at least their care of her--they say she's crazy,however,can be caught,loaded,feet trimed-----so why can't they do something about her mane and tail!!! Witches locks and the tail is a rope!!!! How much trouble would it be next time the farrier is there to just cut everything off !!!(can't go talk to them,got mad when they'd fired a nice mare that just needed rest.

In my opinion, the way other people care for their animals is none of my business. ;-) I could care less what people do with the animals around me, and I don't give advice unless I'm asked.

Sounds to me like you've got way too much time on your hands. Yes, it would be nice if those things weren't there but - in the greater scheme of things - it could be a whole lot worse!

Women and cats are going to do what they want, men and dogs would be wise to accept this.

Not really - combing out mats in the mane and tail can be very time consuming, and some horses just don't like it because it tends to pull. In a perfect world, every horse would have their mane and tail combed every day but that simply isn't practical for a lot of people.
