    If she calls animal control she'll probably get in trouble too. The animal is still hers, she is responsible for it's care. If she pays someone to do it and she knows they aren't doing it, that's neglectful on her part.

    Bottom line, your animal means you are ultimately responsible. When I go on vacation I pay my horse friends to come over and take care of the horses because my family doesn't do it to my standards (throws hay where they poop, doesn't fill water buckets as needed, etc). So I find someone else to do it before it's a problem.

    It would be useless to call animal control. The horses still have water and adequate shelter. Trust me, there is a horse down the road that is 300+ lbs underweight, gets no food and has zero shelter and lives in a paddock right next to the road. We've called everyone we can think of, but since it isn't a large number, no one will do anything about it.

    I'm not trying to seem rude but was that question worth asking? I would've already been gone. They aren't taking responsibility for what they've been payed to do. It isn't right that your horse went hungry for that long. Leave that stable and find somewhere that's proper!

    Well since this they've put hay out and we have decided not to move. The other barn was just too far away and didn't have what I needed, I.e. Jumps. There aren't any other barns in the area that I wouldn't have to downgrade for, and that also means downgrading the care of my horse. Oh how I wish I could have him at my house..

    Be careful when you base things on the word of another person. I've had boarder A 'fib' to boarder B in the past to try and make boarder B upset enough to leave. If your group is that 'tight', she may want the whole bunch of you gone.

    Just saying . . .

    I pulled Hunter out of the barn he was at in the middle of the month because he was not getting the food or water he needed (and I even bought extra feed for him as he was growing). That is unacceptable.

    I assume this is the same BO that got mad at you for feeding hay to your horse a couple months ago? They do not sound like they care as much about the welfare of the horses as they do about making a buck and saving a bit of cash by not feeding as much hay as they should be. I would move.

    I would think that having my horse properly cared for would matter more than if a new barn would have jumps or not...IMHO

    He is getting fed at least once a day, and has auto waterers, plus they have put out a new round bale. So he isn't being neglected or starved. It's just annoying. This place is 11 miles from my house with inexperianced horse people, and the other place is 38 miles away with still, inexperianced horse people. I would rather be closer if something happened, then farther away. The jumps are not of utmost importance, but they are a plus. And when I say there is no where closer to go, I MEAN there is no where closer to go.
