Before I rant, I want to say that I am NOT a peta freak or an animals rights activist... okay?

Alright... it really pisses me off when people have animals can don't care for them. I got a call the other day from a woman saying her horse threw a shoe and she needed it tacked back on. Her old farrier retired and she needs a new one...

So today I show up at her barn. Kind of run down, dinky looking place but seemed decent enough. I had no idea what I was about to walk into.

She has the horse tied to the wall and waiting for me. She gives me a little history on the horse.. that he's 30 years old, in good health, she still rides him a little, and that he fractured his pastern (ankle) as a foal but it healed and he's sound, but a little stiff.

So I walk up to the horse and pick up his feet. I was horrified. This horse had been walking on the sides of his hooves and his soles weren't even on the ground. It had been AT LEAST a year since he was trimmed/shod. Average time span between trimming should be 6 weeks. Then she walks away and leaves me to it.

I didn't say anything to the lady and just went to work. Took me over an hour just to trim all four feet so that they were fairly straight. At least his soles were back on the ground. Took me another hour to cold shape shoes to fit his effed feet and nail em up.

When I was done I told her that he'd definitely be sore. But in a few days he'd be much better. I told her I'd be back in six weeks to trim and reset.

She says "I told you just to tack the lost shoe back on. I didn't want him done all around..."
I lost it.
Long story short I told that if he'd have a month at the most before he broke down and needed put down if I didn't do what I did.

Luckily she was a fairly level headed person and paid me for the whole deal. But something tells me I won't be getting a call back in six weeks...

I hate people. If you own an animal, their life DEPENDS on you. It's not just about feeding them and giving them water. They're like kids and need more than just some food.

WTF.

This can't be any truer. I see things like that all the time around here. My ex even lost a colt because she had to keep it at her ex's house. She bought the feed for it and everything but he didnt take care of it at all and his horses were in shit shape too

^ Well, I can't top that, but I did have to send a Priority package today at the Post Office for an item I sold on Amazon. Anyway, I try to get an idea of postage costs before I leave that way I'm not shocked when I get there. Well, I was sending a flash for an old 35 mm camera, so I wanted to use a little more box than a typical small one. I was all set to use their small priority if-it-fits-it ships, and they were completely out. WTF. So, I wasn't going to go home, and I had a small boxthat I could have used. I had to buy one of their $1.99 boxes to use. They wonder why they lose so much money. That is my rant! On a side note, I have to send my watch to Timex to get serviced, so now I have the box I could have used this afternoon.

I've got a new rant. My neighbors just moved in the beginning of July. They weren't there a week when they started trimming the trees in the back yard. The next day I saw green plants in 5 gal buckets evenly spaced out. By the end of the 2nd week they had a fence up and 2 new dogs. One on each side of their "Garden" well the one that's closest to my house barks all freckin night long! It's barking right now actually. It's been barking for over a hour now! It's pretty damn irritating and I'm getting madder and madder by the minute. They have never told the dog to shut up! I'm really tired of the damn thing.

Call the police since most cities have a noise ordinance in place, especially at night. You could even call anonymously.

I'm not in the city. I live in the foot hills but we have a neighbor that's like 100 yards away. Idk if the sheriffs would even drive out here for a noise complaint or laugh at me. I'm gonna go talk to them tomorrow if they're home.

It is but you have to have a card. But that's only a state law. The Feds have been hitting them hard the past few months since its still a federal offense to grow. Federal law supersedes state law. They go after the people that grow more than like 20 or so plants cuz that more than personal use. My bro is a stoner and so is my buddies' wife. I'm not a smoker at all.
