    Unhappy Help...overburndened with dirt and grime!

    I'm the new kid on the block at my barn. I just bought my first horse a few days ago.

    He is field care, but I use the self-care barn a lot. I even keep my belongings in there.

    The self-care barn is a mess. Completely gross and not kept up well. The full-care barn is very nice and so neat. I talked to my BO who is my instructor as well, told me that she can't keep this barn clean because the boarders simply don't care.

    There is dirt and cobwebs everywhere. People's stuff are all over the floor of the tack room. Things are just thrown everywhere haphazerdly. It is nasty.

    What can I do to clean up this complete mess?

    I would suggest talking with the BO and just see if they mind you trying to clean up a bit. You might also talk to the other boarders who use the self-care barn and see if they will help. Unfortunately, if they don't care whether it is clean or not, you can't keep it tidy all by yourself. You can try though.

    Welcome to the forum by the way. Congrats on the new horse.

    That's what I'm afraid of smrobs. *Sighs* Thanks though...I just don't understand how people can spend soooo much money on buying a horse, all of the tack, and upkeep, but then not even care about where it's kept. I mean....come on now. It's just plan laziness. Maybe I can talk to her about using the barn closer to the full care barn. Cause the mess is driving me insane. I did not spend all of this money just to have it ruined by dirt.

    Aaaaarggghhh!!!! Just overwhelmed with frustration.

    Thanks though. I'm really glad that I have finally joined the horse owner clan. Hehe... That does make me happy.
