Thanks CQ. Anyone can look like they don't abuse animals in public, but once out of the public eye it's a whole other story
Sounds like you board your horse? Just wondering, is there a reason your stable owner or barn manager didn't tell you? Not that your leasee shouldn't have told you... But this time of yr, under regular circumstances, I can only get out to our stable on the weekends, so I rely on the staff for SO much. And, pft, they surely do get paid well for it!!A woman was riding my horse regularly by agreement. She's a good rider. My horse inadvertently got trimmed and ridden the next day. 2 days later came up lame on a Thursday. She tells me that Sunday because she got busy! Some people are so stupid. She's one of those people where 95% of all conversations end up talking about herself.
Anyway, I started using an Epsom salt paste and bandage the hoof. (hoof abcess is like bumblefoot on a horse with a pocket of puss that has to work it's way out. Years ago the vet would come and dig around in their hoof, but that's not done anymore. Now it's basically painkillers, soaking, and leaving the horse in the pasture because walking increases circulation. So it's a daily trip to the barn. I think it does me good getting out there daily!
It's been almost 2 weeks. These things take time.
That's sorta sucky, I'm sorry! They should notify you no matter what and then let it be your call on whether or not it's a big deal.Sara, those were my words exactly. The rider noticed it on a Thursday and called me on Monday because she was too busy. She's one of those "all about me" people . The barn manager said it didn't look bad a few days before and since she was trimmed that past week, they thought she was just sensitive. From the question catching the manager off guard and my facial expression -it will not happen again.
You are right. I pay alot of money to board my horse where I do because of the access to a trail. They should be watching my horse and notifying me if somethings not right.
