I had one that did...

Worst boarding experience so far. Even worse than the BO who kept trying to OD Dream on Bute. That's saying something...

(see, this is why everything here looks fairly easily fixed to me! LOL)

Oh heavens, that must have been one really, really, really bored BO!

I'm in CO and the weather changes every 15 minutes around here. No way to predict what on earth the weather is going to be like. It can go from hot and sunny to frigid cold and hailing and then back to hot and sunny all while my BO is in line at the feed store! I'll call my trainer, she'll say my lesson is on as the weather is absolutely gorgeous and during my 45min drive, the wind will start howling and rain starts falling, so I'm playing the game of turn around and go back home or press on and hope it stops (which isn't at all unusual). Frustrating!

LOL I always say no man lies more than the weather man. Around here one day it'll be 60 degrees, the next 30. You never know when it's safe to put away the furry boots and winter jackets! & if I followed the weather man, my horses would NEVER be out! Man, it's such a relief to not have to print out a weather report for the BO anymore. We actually had to do that a few times because she'd tell us they were calling for rain and 50 MPH winds...we must have been checking on weather for different states when my report said partly cloudy.

What time did you go to lunge your horse at? I know the barn Rena is at closes at a certain time, and the arena is usually closed all weekend if a clinic is going on.

I personally like my horses stall with a lot of shavings in it because I've seen horses get sores on their hocks from lack of. But that's just MO.

As for the weather, that's understandable if they didn't want to bring him in, that can be a huge pain in the rear end if your doing barn chores to do that. It's hard to blanket to the weather, but I'm almost sure your horse would've been fine out in the field for a few more hours in bad weather without proper blanketing, horsesndont get cold like we do.

I would try and talk to the BO if you're upset about anything serious.

I like the suggestion that you could buy your own shavings if you want more. This seems reasonable to me, as I assume you toured the place before you boarded there and knew the amount of shavings they put in.

As far as the clinic, it could well be that they left it open in case anyone had questions or concerns after the clinic was done. How often are clinics happening at this barn?

I wouldn't board there where it seems to be a lot about just the money, but where people board is their choice.
Are you all ignoring this post? I have agreed, I surrender, this post is getting a tad off track

I live in New Jersey and in the winter sometimes it gets really windy and cold and icy hail storms. At my barn they bring all the horses in if it is a really bad night. There are stormy nights when I believe horses are better inside!! We also got alot of snow this year so the horses were all brought in during the heavy snow. Of course they were let out again to play in the snow!
