I used to be very active in these message boards... i was on the verge 0f inherting 160+ acreas of the family farm.... and needed to learn whatever I could a.s.a.p..... I knew the grandparents were ailing in their health & needed family up here.... my corporate job was going away to those over the ocean in india..... so I moved back home to be a caregiver for both... I did very well by them.... and at the same time i had full use of the farm and went from 4 Pygora does to 26. 14 does and 6 bucks + wethers..... at any rate, yes, we were "willed" the property and fullfilled their wishes for caretaking duties...far and above what they would have gotten in residentail care.... then we find out there is $360,000 owed against the property because they mortgaged it for their other financial 'venues...." basically gambling scenerois.... My point is before you let family heart strings determine your course in life...... please get it in writing.... " Yes, you may know you did it right..... but if you have to give up critters because you didn't know the whole story.... that really, really, really sucks.... never assume you are in the clear just because you listened to your "altruistic voice....".... Thank you for reading... this is a work in progress..... I didn't even mention the other "siblings" that are fighting for the monetry value they have coming to them from the sale of the property..... I will just breathe now and hope there is someone out there that understands my frustration....
