I really don't want to start a conflict with anyone about this. I am just concerned as a first time horse owner and wanted to get other people's opinions.
You have been asked a couple of times - what does the contract say?
Have you asked when they are normally brought in and turned out? Have you asked what the feeding schedule is?
We state very clearly that all horses are turned out daily unless medically necessary to be confined. I feed at 5:00 a.m. And turn out. We feed again between 8 and 9 pm. We do not feed and bring horses in when someone is there. All the stalled horses come in on their own. We have a series of connected turnouts and they come in through the indoor arena. We don't want to interfere with a workout and we don't want someone in the way for evening chores.
