God some of you are miserable sods. She didnt ask your opinions on his weight. She asked if he coukd be shown in hand. .. she didn't ask you to all be so damned critical of him and sorry but plain bloody rude... moomin... goldenstar. He is hardly the fattest horse ever seen and I think alot of...
Looks to me like a pollen or bite allergy.. it all seems focused on his nose, he shakes his head, rub his nose on his leg and on the door.
Seems to me something is irritating him up in his nasal cavity. I have seen horses who have had stroke.. and he certainly doesnt look like hes had one.
Usually you don't charge any more till weaning or around 6 months, this is when the foal will be eating a decent amount too. Also they would be sharing a stable up until this point so you wouldn't be losing revenue off the stable.
Sorry.. forgive me for being blunt but.. if you knew all along that, if it came down to it and the horse needed an op, that you would have had to have the horse put down , why did you take it the horspital?
I went in to massive debt for my old horse.. Id do it again.
