Hmmm... very interesting responses.
As you know we are raising our rates due to our incoming indoor arena and we are trying to find ways to keep costs down for our current boarders.
Cleaning stalls 6 days a week would save me $75-$80 x 4 days = $320 a month which translates to lower board so it is something I've considered. However, it goes against the grain for me too... I like stalls cleaned every day.
However, if I did this arrangement it would be a week day. I like stalls to be their cleanest on weekends (when there is the most traffic). What we've done lately with all the rain, we have is "make up" turn out time when the weather is nice where we've left horses out at night. I'm leaning toward this arrangement... If they would like their horses to stay out all night 1 day a week or can choose to leave their horses standing in poo.
Just wanted to see what opinions were... Thank you guys for your help!
