    DINGDINGDINGDINGDING!!!!!!!!!

    She did not like being shown up, absolutely right. I don't think she can deal with not being the expert in everything.

    It's a little sad that it will never feel the same there.

    If the BM is happy with the farrier, why is she going to make suggestions to him about what to do with this horse?

    If the farrier is a professional and knows what he is doing, then he would be the one making suggestions. If he had half a clue, no one would need to make suggestions to him.

    I feel the same way about those commercials that tell us to ask or doctor about some med- shouldn't the doctor know?

    Update. Friend called and was told by BO that she shouldn't come to me for advice. She should ask them. (ROFL) Well Golly Gee, they looked at those horse's feet for more than the past month and said nothing. Then she asked them and they said there's nothing they can do. Then they find out that she asked for my advice because she wasn't comfortable with what their replies were.

    There were 5 of them that were aware. They all blew her off.

    But now they are bending over backwards catering to her.

    I don't know. Friend said she asked for my advice. It was not something I pointed out to her. Friend says she made sure that she knew that. But I feel like she should have said more. It's like I took the fall for her and her horse. I'd do it again. For the horse. But now I feel like I don't want anything to do with any of them.

    You need to move girl. We board for many reasons, one of the big ones is so that if we can't get there one day, our horses are cared for.
    This BO has proved they are not trustworthy with care, and that's a deal breaker for me.

    I'm looking to move. See, I have an acre and a stall at home. I went to board to be around horsey people, to chat, to ride, incentive. The first 2 years I was there, it was mostly teens with their horses. That was fun. They loved to do anything. Then for the last 2 years it's turned over to mostly adults. Most of them can't even say hello when they come into the barn. And now, OMG! Don't ever tell the truth if someone asks what you think about something.

    I think I'm kindof burnt out from the politics there. So, I'll either look around or take my horse home. Or just stay and make them feel uncomfortable, LOL

    A gf offered me care at her place, which is immaculate, good hay, good farrier. Trails nearby. Next month I have to got away for 2 weeks for a course and it would be nice not to worry.

    I accepted, whether temporary or not, there would be no bs politics. I have overlooked other issues there, such as V of feed quality, and the water supplied in the pastures does not ever get cleaned.

    Should a barn of 30 horses have 4 horses colic in 3 months? Not good either, I think.

    I am moving my horse to a new place tomorrow. It's a very nice area and lots of places to ride. People are nice and the horses look good. I know the farrier. He's the only one in 4 years that I had no complaints with other than a long toe (he shoes gaited show horses). Hopefully I can tell him she's a mustang and he'll believe me, LOL.
