Right! Or the wash stall, you know? Thrush treatment is supposed to be applied to a clean, DRY hoof. But I took him in the wash stall anyway to alleviate the hassle over the cement. So I would walk my horse through the dirt into the wash stall, clean the hoof, dry it as best as possible and apply the medicine. Then walk him through the dirt again to his stall and pray not to drip anywhere and hope the dirt didn't sop up half the medication. Then I would spray down the stall, wind up the hose, shut off the lights.... really, I was a good boarder!
These people were just unreasonable. Someone said something about, if I don't pay the whole month I could possibly lose my horse. Like I said the lein was only if you were 2 months delinquent. And when I spoke to the attorney about it, she said no. That can't happen. I was clearly within the stipulations of the contract, and contracts, in almost all states, trump verbal or implied agreement (ie: pro-rata is only for incoming, hear-say care complaints).
Anyway, I moved my horse and we are happily cleaning feet and battling worms. I'm hoping he's back to normal quickly. I appreciate all the support and information, honestly. It was interesting to get views from people who owned barns and those who board. Its cool to see the diversity on these forums. Makes posting worth while.
