Stall Cleaning Poll-

If a potential boarding facility only cleans stalls 6 days a week, does this effect your decision to board there? Why or why not?

I wouldn't board somewhere that only cleaned stalls 6 days a week. Unless I got a break on the price and had the time to come and clean on the day they had "off."

I don't understand why barns have a 'day off' of cleaning stalls. It just ends up being 2 or 3 times the work the next day 'on'.

We have a horse on stall rest right now. She has a buddy in with her. Those stalls are cleaned 3 times per day.

I would prefer everyday, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker.

I would never board my horse in a facility where he would be made to stand in a dirty stall for more than a day.

Where I board, we have all day turnout. If the weather is really nice, this can mean 16hrs of turnout, so stalls are basically untouched. If the stalls are pretty much untouched and scheduled to be stripped the next day, my BO will skip cleaning them.

On yucky days when everyone is stuck inside for all or most of the day, my BO cleans the stalls at least 3x per day. She also cleans all the stalls right before the Vet/Farrier arrive since she keeps everyone inside for those visits so nobody is anxious about a buddy not being around.

I'm fine with this, I know if I personally was cleaning stalls, I'd do the same thing!

I understand your staff needing a day off but I'm with mls, in this case it really only causes so much more to do the next day 'on'. Is there anyway the staff could rotate or something to always have someone there cleaning?

I don't have a horse to board but if I did and a potential stable said my horse would be left to fill their stall one day a week plus however long it takes to get to their stall to clean it the next day I would be weary. It better be a very very nice place otherwise with all the other amenities I could need from a stable.

OR at least let me have access to a muck rake, bucket and the poop pile so I can do it myself.

Delfina has a good point with the all day turn out, but that just doesn't happen much here.

If they are in the stalls should be clean.
I know a place that doesn't turn horses out at all on weekends-ever. They don't clean then either. Pure laziness & contol freaks.
A friend used to board there & it stunk, nasty flies, no fans allowed, no windows & very dark. She would hate to bring familiy or friends out because she was so embarrassed. Most people do bring guests on weekends too.
She also was not allowed to clean her own stall because the BO didn't want others to complain if they saw a clean stall while theirs was filthy.
How some places get boarders I'll never know.

It wouldn't infuriate me, but for the price most full-care stables charge around here, I might be a little ticked if they announced they were going to skip one day a week.
