Lol the manure pile are NOT away from the horses (used to board there). i am also not paying 180 for my horse be be fed 1 flake of alfalfa a day. My mare is fine. I know exactly what they are doing. They have upped her grass and are taking the alfalfa (their gelding will only eat alfalfa. he went 3 days without eating because he refused to eat the grass). So I got rid of the alfalfa. This is the first time in almost 7 months that i had a feed related issue like this with them. Im looking for anywhere to keep her right now that feeds.

There are a few listing on Craigslist for that area that are within your price range...
This one was the cheapest: HORSE BOARDING
Sounds like its closer than where you're currently boarding too..

I boarded there. The fencing is dangerous. Id have to pull her shoes because she will get stuck in the fencing again. The kids throw fire crackers at the horses (found some in my cut up mare's stall) and there is at least 1 stud on the property (the horses are NOT well contained if the gelding next to my mare can take the fence down between them). That is my worst case scenario. (also someone was stealing my hay from there too). The Bo is also a little nuts. He started yelling at me like a was a child because i was no longer going to have him feed my hay in the morning (because I was tired of paying $25 extra a month for him to forget to feed my mare at a good time once a day). To be honest im better off where im at now than there.
There is some good news though. I know the horses that moved in. Both are old (almost 40!) and non-troublemakers so my mare won't get in a fight with them. She remembers the gelding from another place I boarded at. I have emailed some boarding places not far from me that are within my price range as well.

(I was the only person on the property at the time under 60 and not broken so i was roped into dealing with the "Brat" V)
I also had to catch the spoiled mare. Bo was bringing her and and she tried to kick Bo in the head. Took off and ran into another horse's stall. Little mare realized that was not a good idea. She tried to kick me, i put a rope halter on her and we practiced backing up. Im NOT going to lead a horse that is going to run me over. Less than 5 min i had the brat in HER stall and locked up. Normally i would not bother but my mare was hyped as it was and there there two old horses being walked into the barn. Bo could not handle it so that left me. If i had her owners number i would have called her to get her horse but I dont. And BO did not want to bother her... UGH!

Hopefully I hear back from the two barns soon.

A old friend of mine will be spending a lot of time at the barn thanks to the older horses. She is a vet tech, trainer (broke her own horses gently for years), and most of all, a go getter who will not put up with stupidity. She has been known to "whip barns into shape". Since her word is like god to most people (including BO) i MAY not have to move. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop looking, but Things might get better. Lol she may drive out Brat and her owner (I will NOT be sad to see them go.)
