    That is a shame. Too bad the BO is being so stubborn. I can't imagine not being able to have a mature discussion about a blanket with the person who owns my barn. I hate to say it but I would move if its an option

    I would move your horse.
    It's probably not a big deal. Most horses don't NEED to be blanketed. But it worries me that they went out and took the blanket off of your horse after you sent them an email saying it was your responsibility. It is your horse. Like JDI said, most blankets these days are water proof. If they aren't you could water proof them. Unless your horse is in danger the BO has no right to do that that I know of. Now, if you signed the boarding contract and it said this, then that's a different story but it doesn't sound like that is the case.
    I blanket my horse. He is at the bottom of the herd and the other horses do not let him in the shelter. It keeps my peace of mind to know that he has a blanket.
    If you are saying you will take the blankets on and off then the BO should not be able to go out there and take off your blanket.

    I would move just because I think that is disrespectful.
    However if you want to stay, it may sound like you will have to sacrifice blanketing.

    Thank you everyone for your posts. I think all of you touched on a point that's exactly how I feel.

    We have a boarder who has a 19 year old arabian mare which I blanket. She has 4 blankets and as a BO I have to to say I really find it alot of work and I would prefer not to. However, I like the boarder very much and her horse is lovely. I would rather do a little bit more and have great people and horses.
    Her horse comes from England and has been blaketed her entire life. Luckily no other boarders want blankets.
    It is really a lot of extra work and I don't like the idea of pastured horses in blaknets due to the risk of injury.
