Thank you everyone for your advice I appreciate all of your comments. Her reasons are the fire hazards and if one person puts a fan up then everyone puts a fan up she said. I just don't feel the barn has good enough venilation through it. There is a hayloft right over the stalls and narrow ailes. I am seriously considering moving my horse to another place. I found a place just down the road from me where he will be outside all day in a 15 acre pasture with only 4 other horses. There are trees for shade and I can put in in the barn whenver I want or leave him out. It's also cheaper because it's more "self care". The barn is a huge old barn with wide ailes and the hay loft is on the other end of the barn from where the stalls are. Nothing fancy but I'm thinking maybe better for his well being.

Nothing wrong with moving your horse if the set up you have currently is not working for you and your horse.


What your current barn owner says makes perfect sense. She is very correct. If one person does something then everyone will want to do it. Just look around here. There are frequently posts about it not being fair because someone else got to do something that they are not allowed to do.

Not being able to put a fan on a stall was surprisingly prevalent when I was looking for a new boarding facility a couple of months ago in sw ohio. My last facility was a nice place, but didn't allow fans and the circulation was poor enough that my horse was sweating constantly every day and he's in the 4th stall from the end of the aisle. There was just no cross breeze. We had a foal in the breeziest part of the barn and she was sweating in the stall, but the bo wouldn't allow a fan on that stall. There was a mare - also in the breeziest part of the barn- with a medical condition and a vet saying she had to have a fan, but the bo wouldn't do that either. When I moved, a fan on my stall was a requirement. I had to pass up on a few cheaper places to find one and I'm paying extra to have it on top of the full care cost.

I agree and I'm not upset with the BO at all. Matter of fact my parents used to run a boarding stable back in the 80's and 90's and I remember what a pain in the butt the boarders could be. I just think I need to find something different for my needs. The barn isn't very open and the fact that he doesn't get enough turn out time is a concern. If I turn him out I have to be there the whole time. For some people that works but not for me when I have to work full time and have 2 kids to take of too. The other barn is willing to let me keep him outside with their horses and will bring him in for me if the weather gets bad. That's nice. I wish I could have my own place to be able to turn horses out all day and look out at them grazing in the field but that's not reality...at least not yet...lol!

Sounds like the BO is just avoiding any and all accidents.
