Came in from work, to find my aunt sitting here, I only stepped into the living room and shes off on one, telling me I done this wrong etc etc, she said he will never be able to go out in that field again but you don't listen! I've been there is going to cost you thousands! same old *****, I really don't need it, It's been year and a half, I've manged his weight all this time, hes been fine out there, they said if you had told me last week I would have brought him up the stables........He didn't have lamnitis last ******* week! Then she proceeds to tell me their bare paddock is MILES too big, thats why hes got lamnitis again:sad-no: I almost burst in to tears.
I'm not having her poke her snotty nose in where its not wanted, I would mine if she was actually trying to help but shes not, shes trying to get one over on me once again:mad:
Now shes telling me to give him 3/4 bute and walk him up in the morning:sick:

That really is the last thing you need. She should be supportive and sympathetic (like us lot!!). So sorry to hear she upset you, try not to let it get to you. Big hug x

Does she really know what she is talkning about? Are they her concern? Or is she really just sticking her nose in?
God I hate people like that, just what you need when your feeling down. And it doesnt matter how careful we are about trying to avoid these things etc we always blame ourselves! Thats hard enough on our concience(sp).
When I come across annoying people like that I try to imagine them as a cartoon character, it distracts you from their annoying speech, but be careful you may laugh at them!

****** families-you can't choose them!

Oh no Rhea :( ... that's not what you need at all is it? Family!!

That sounds annoying and terribly unhelpful. Laminitis can be triggered by MILLIONS of things, and nobody on the planet, no matter how careful and amazing they are at managing their horse, is going to get every single one of them every single time. Especially true for horses that have had it in the past. It's just how things work. You've been very careful and you've done an amazing job managing his weight, it's just a really unlucky terrible thing that's happened.

You can choose your friends....... !
Try not to let her get to you because that is what she is hoping to achieve.

16th September 2009, 09:41 PM
she is a dick head. you must hate her so much!
i sold my horsebox last week otherwise i would move him for you. do you no anyone else with a box? where are your stables? in your garden?

Oh there's nothing worse than interfering people! Especially from your own family! Its not your fault Rhea so don't let her convince you that it is.

sorry rhea- just ignore her, you know whats best for your boys and as you say you've managed him for a year and a half with no problems. the grass this summers been a nightmare for everyone and is still growing so you're not alone!

What does your mum say to it? Does she know what a good job your done with Sisco's weight lately, can she not have a word with her and tell her to keep her nose out??
If not get your lovely aunt to join this forum, we will sort her out! lol

Thank girls, I'm just going to try to ignore her.
Jodee - aww thank you! I know one person with a box but she hasn't and probably won't get back to me, the stables are the other end of my field, its not that far but to far to walk him like that, its hard to explain where it is without seeing it, It used to be a garden lol not anymore though.
Velsmum - My aunt doesn't say anything in front or to my mother, she knows she doesn't take her crap, My mum would tell her were to go if she heard her, my mum can see his weight she agrees hes done well this summer to keep it off.
God if she joined her, you would hear never ending bull ***** lol

Ah Rhea i feel so sorry for you! Again, i've said this before she doesn't sound like a nice woman. After sitting here thinking of what you can do i have decided the best thing would be for her just not to talk to you. So if i was you i would tell her to **** off and mind her own business - that way she might get the message and stay out of your life for a while.

Honestly Rhea I know just how jumping difficult it is trying to keep a horse slim and prevent laminitis!!! You are doing the best you can, it springs from nowhere!!! Ignore her!!!
17th September 2009, 11:55 PM
Laminitis is a terrible thing.
I think it is horrible that your Aunt is trying to make you feel bad about this. You are worried enough about the pony and need support and help, not her just going off on one at you. As far as I can tell from on here you have had him muzzled and kept his weight down all summer, once they have had it it can be a nightmare making sure it doesn't come back and can come out of nowhere.
