BM Too Young

I recently relocated my horse to a Grass Farm. It sounded great to have plenty of grass for my horse instead of feeding grain. The winter was OK as BM put roundbales in field to supplement grass not growing.

Come spring the BM asked if each boarder wanted on the lush grass field that might cause colic and/or founder, or on the "Fat field" where not much grass grows. Most boarders elected the "Fat field".

The "Fat field" is actually a dirt/weed lot.

The BM raised the board and lost all but two boarders. Since a 30 days notice is required, the last couple weeks of my notice the remaining horses have had no hay to supplement the lack of grass.

This is a deliberate move by the BM. She is hurting horses she is being paid to care for. Only cares about incoming money and not the wellbeing of the horses.

Beware when boarding at Over the Grass Farm. The trails in The Plains are great, but the BM has no interest in your horses, only her own.

What does any of that have to do with the BM's age?

Move now. She already broke the contract & she won't do anything about you leaving.
Why would everyone chose the Fat Field? Horses can be safely put out on grass if it's done right.

I agree with Natisha on "move out", and with other poster on "What the age has to do with it?". I know several barns in area with BM/BO in their 50th - 60th, and doing dangerous things for horses (and in 1 case caring only about $$$). On other hand I know younger folks with great farms and care.

I also agree ^.... Why not put the horses on rotation with the lush field and dry lot? They would still get lots of grass but not over eat.
