I just don't understand this concept at all. If you need an extra $20 per boarder to cover your costs, then increase the board by $20. It is certainly not an answer for me to reduce the basic care for horses by not mucking out.
I imagine that those paying for stalls rather than the cheaper field board, are doing this for a reason, they want their horses stalled over night. So the extra night out option just does not make sense.
I would be really peeved and would start looking for another barn if the BO was trying to cut corners and not mucking out every day.
