Ok I am looking for some advice/help. I have 3 horses that my grandparents have had for years ( my oldest is 34!!!!!). They adopted my mare (the oldest) when she was 1 1/2. Later they bred her twice hoping to get a filly, they ended up with 2 colts and long story short we still have them today! my geldings are 18 and 21 they have both been ridden a very little at some point in there lives but have not ended well and last time they were was like 10+ years ago. So now we have 2 very unusable horses that are EXTREMELY buddy sore toward their mom! for example last time we tried to get my mare out one of them jumped through an 18 inch opening in his stall (thank God he didn't get stuck!) It has become hard on my Grandpa's back to bail hay and stack it all, I've been helping him the last few years (I'm 15) I'm now concerned not only for my safety being around them and being frustrated not being able to get my mare out but I'm also concerned for my Grandparents safety! I have talked to a few people about this. I would really like to find someone via Facebook exchanges to take them as pasture pets or something (for free) my MAIN concern is getting them in a trailer I'm scared that even if we could they would like tip it over or something. I've had a few people tell me it's not my problem, the people taking them can figure it out but I don't anyone getting hurt! I've also had a few people tell me to drug them but I'm pretty sure thats probably illegal, and last people have told me to put them down! That's really hard for me because I don't feel like they are doing anything wrong despite the fact they are dangerous when you try to do ANYTHING with them. They both are really sweet horse but just WAYYYY to buddy sore for their own good! I don't know I'm just looking for some advice/opinions on this. Ideally we would keep my mare and find a home for the other two. And NO there is NO WAY we would send them to a kill pen just in case someone was thinking it lol. I soooooooo appreciate it if you took the time to read this!!!!!!! Thank you for any advice you can give me! THANK YOU!!!!
