Well the other night I was sat at home and checked my facebook account and I had been tagged into a picture of my beautiful spottie boy in his stable by one of the girls from my yard. A few hours later I realised his mane was almost gone meaning it had been cut off. As you can imagine I was a bit dismayed and very upset that I hadn't been consulted on this spur of the moment thing that was being done to my pony!
I contacted the yard manager about this and she phoned me straight back in the morning to confirm that his mane had in fact not been pulled but cut off and it had been done quite late at night after the yard manager had gone into her house.
I know who did it but I don't really know what to do about it as I think there has been a misunderstanding somewhere. I am taking Cracker to an inhand show which is a native spotted class therefore I thought he would need a full mane??? I did speak to the person that hacked off his mane before this took place and we had discussed tidying him up (exact words) I didn't think for one moment this would be the result particulary that I wasn't there.
Now I work full-time Monday-Thursday and I have a 20 month old so as you can imagine I am very busy so I know this particular person has groomed Cracker for me when I have run out of time not through me asking though I would like to add...however I do spend an hour and a half every day at the yard and I pay for turnout and morning checks so I am not neglecting him in anyway!
The thing is I am not quite sure what to do about this? I am not out to fall out with anyone as that's not really my style but I think I need to nip this in the bud however I think she was more trying to help me than being horrible. Also does this mean I shouldn't bother with the inhand spotted show in June? His mane is a mess and I am really sad :(
