If the current BO was that worried about 30 days she should have had a contract. With no contract or any verbal agreement one way or the other 2 weeks is plenty of notice.
But like many of the questions on this forum. All kinds of disputes could be solved or prevented altogether if there was a written contract. Personally I feel both sides are wrong for not having it in writing.

Let's see, your horse gets turned out onto mainly a dirt pasture with a hill. She won't founder on dirt and the hill is good for building muscle. She's turned out for the night. Again, that's a positive as the biting insects aren't as bad. Most horses want to be out at night and in during the day. Your darling horse showed the BO lack of respect and was reprimanded. If your horse keeps eating 10 lbs of grain daily it may never get over having sore hooves. Cut back on the grain and add more hay. She'd be better off. If she goes out on grass 24/7 she may founder then she'll really be crippled.

My mare is far from at risk for foundering, shes a thin 4 year old thoroughbred who would benefit greatly from being on pasture. She is on free choice hay. The amount of grain shes on is the only thing that put weight on her (its a complete feed, so 10lbs is not that outrageous anyways) in addition to rice bran. Being on pasture will be advantageous because I should be able to cut her grain back, which i stated is something I wanted.

While hills are great for building muscle, this is quite a steep grade. Combine that with the hard ground, rocks that often accompany dirt, and a group of other thoroughbred mares who like to RUN, it is far from ideal. She is foot sore because she has thin walls and soles and had her shoes pulled prior to my owning her. Her feet were poorly taken care of and she had a lot wear and tear, she needs time to grow some foot. She is not foot sore because shes on a lot of grain, or because of laminitic episodes.

Yes, night turnout is great. However, being a young off the track thoroughbred who is obviously not in work she can use all the turnout she can get. When its 75 out and sunny and shes sitting in her stall all day pacing (a habit shes started since at this barn) its a little frustrating. I live in NY, we have not had the same excessive heat the rest of the country has, being turned out during the day is not cruel nor unusual.

And yes, my darling horse did show the barn manager a bit of disrespect. Shes a baby and she gets impatient and will lip at you and on occasion nip. However, any good horse person should know not to hit any horse in the face with their fist. Yell, slap them on the neck, shoulder, belly; sure.
Face? No. Pretty common sense. When the person taking care of my horse on a daily basis tells me "if your horse is ever head shy its probably because I hit her in the face"...it doesn't exactly thrill me.

So "Let's see" ..anything else you'd like to tell me about my horse?
