SO...in the contract where I am keeping my horses, its a basic contract...ride at your own risk, he's not responsible for anything basically blah blah blah...you know same ole typical barn contract. NO WHERE in the contract that I signed states that I have to use his dewormer. He just come up with this "deworming" thing like 3 months ago or so and charges 20.00 a horse/dewormer or 25.00 a horse for him to go in and deworm them. I can understand his point that ya he needs to keep the worms under control on his property as there are some boarders out there that don't deworm or are hardly there at all but this is a money grab for people like me who actually look after there horses. I stated to him when I first brought my horses in that, fine, I don't care he charges for dewormer but I will do them myself. He was supposed to deworm on the 1st this month and he didnt. He did them today and phoned me and said I owe him 50.00 for deworming my horses. I AM CHOKED. I don't like anyone handling my horses especially him because he is rough and my one horse doesnt like him and this guy is mean to him...how do I get around this? I am trying to figure out my rights as a boarder and what I can say to him that will put him in his place. He uses the same dewormer everytime he deworms, he orders it out of the states at 2.99 a tube. I am upset about this as well because I know using the same dewormer isnt going to help them much either. Please help. I just phoned the cops to find out but she said it may be a civil matter. I always thought that if it wasnt in contract then we didnt have to abide by it. There is a shortage of boarding out this way so I am stuck at this place. This guy that owns the barn isnt always easy to deal with either although at this point I don't care I am ready to tell him where to go and how to get there...Any help would be great!!
