    In my shoes, what what you do?

    If youre really gone then you wont read this anyway, but i think you need to reevaluate. You're clearly stressed out about this all and probably taking things a little to heart. People will always have opinions and views, thats the nature of a forum, but its a place you can learn/bounce ideas...

    Quite a large well known vets in this case, i doubt they are scared..just can't quite give objective statement that the horse is in a bad way.

    Anyone taken a chance that worked out ?

    Bar the two i have bred/leased to breed, every single ones been a chance lol my first mini mare was a neglected little thing as owner had Alzheimers and tended to forget about her (he thought she was a 6yo gelding, and showed me a passport to boot, but that was actually her son that he had bred...

    Irish common sense - thank God!

    Ah connies. My old yard had one that would get himself cast a fair bit. He would just lie there dozing until someone came to pull him over, sometimes not even getting up after being pulled over. Will admit though that the big pointy bit made me a bit nervous - thank god she didn't jump that bit :O

    No because thats not a welfare concern. It would be DEFRA that deal with any of that, and i have it on good authority they class unpassported horses as extremely low on their priorities.

    With some trepidation.....

    I get it too, normally i would happily buy a new animal the day an old one died! I have not replaced my last dog though and i don't think i ever will. Best of luck with him :)

    Further advice on stallions in close proximity to mares

    Depends on the mare. My mare was never very showy never showed to my geldings and was not overly interested in the stallion i used for her twice (didn't take) or the stallion i used to tease her. but then i got my own stallion and she was like a raving lunatic for him and would be in season 24/7...

    If even a big name like Asda can't get anything done what hope do mere people have :/ I don't really have any knowledge or experience with the travelling community as we don't tend to have them about here much, but how do they (as in the bad ones like this, not the good law abiding ones) just...

    As far as i know they took it just to see the vet due to the sores, which a local charity paid the bill for (£750 apparently...) but the horse was never "seized" or signed over and owners demanded £2000 for him which obviously wasn't going to be paid. I think they maybe agreed to let him go to...

    Hiring horseboxes vs owning

    Could you possibly sell it and keep the money in a pot you are not allowed to touch, then if you get back the bug to get out and about you can pick up another?

    Problem is they can only go on what they see in front of them. A young horse with a sore on his head (that can happen to any horse) a few bit marks (again can happen to any horse, is not great horsemanship but hardly illegal) and he is sound and yes a little slender, but a fit healthy animal for...

    Hiring horseboxes vs owning

    I couldnt live without my own trailer, but i would hesitate to have a box as i just would not get the use out of it. Have you considered a trailer?
