Hello I have a very sweet TB mare. She is not Marish
at all and very sweet. Does need a little bit of work on cross ties.she does
crib as well Other than that she’s very very well broke walk trot canter. Goes
bareback and threw trails. Started over poles. I’m sellin her because about 2
days ago she became lame and I do not have the time to deal with that. Not sure
what it is. We have an equi cast on her and she seems to be doing better!
Probably because she just chipped her hoofs but would like someone who knows
what they are doing with her. She’s is very pretty. And sooo sweet. I hate to
sell her but I just don’t have the time to deal with it. Please email me for
pictures and any questions. Need her gone ASAP Give me a price too .
Don’t have the time? Time for what? To call out a vet? To wait a couple of days and see if it was just a bad step in the field? To maybe hose her leg and wrap it? How about checking for an absess or stone bruise? Most of these things would take an hour or so….
It would be a pretty major chip for her to be lame on it. Maybe she is one of those Thbs that needs shoes….Or no time for a farrier either?
‘Someone who knows what they are doing” would be a vet, or a farrier. Most horse owners get these people out, once in a while…..*eyeroll*
Then we have some more of the “don’t have the time” excuse.
Had time to ride her on trails and over poles though….
This is akin to “My car wouldn’t start the other day so I am selling it-no time to deal with this”. Most of us would try to boost it and make sure it had fuel at least, then maybe get a mechanic or handy friend look at it, before deciding it had to go.
Horse people know, horses take time! Even if you don’t keep them at home we go out to the barn, groom them, tack them, ride them, cool them out…maybe a hand walk or a nice bath. Maybe we take a few minutes and pull their manes, clip their ears, or just….hang out with them! I remember my ex-husband whining about how my hour rides turned into 3-4 hours at the barn 🙂 Yes it did, and I never rushed to avoid the whining (but I did get rid of him *snicker* had no time for that). Most of us actually ENJOY the time we spend with our horses, in the saddle or not. Isn’t that why we have them?
They are not machines to scrap when it suits us. Would this same person toss her Mother in a home if she broke her leg and -GASP-needed some precious TIME from her?
If you don’t have the time you shouldn’t get into a sport where a living creature depends on you for it’s welfare. Get a dirtbike, you can ride the shit out of it then throw it in a shed.
