BO upset cause I paid her "too much"

Jack & Danee are at a private farm. They have 5 acres of pasture & a open lean too barn in the summer that they share with a cow. For the winter months they share a 15 X15 stall with open turn out to a roughly 35X30 corral. Some "higher horsie athority" brought us together. I needed a better place & she wanted horses with out having to pay for them. They have full access to use Jack with the understanding that he is young & green & I'm not responsible for any accidents (it's in our contract) I only pay like 1/8th of what "normal" bording would be around here. When it started getting colder, she offered to feed them in the am & I would feed them plus her cow in the evening. As the winter got colder & wetter, plus my work hours went crazy, she offered to do all the chores. So I doubled what I would normally pay her for the month. Yesterday I went to work with Jack & gave her April bord, plus extra for chores. A short while later she came out & chewed me out for giving her too much! Even with the "extra" I give her, i"m still paying less than I would for one animal at a bording facility. I guess I should count my blesings & be happy, but I don't want to take advantage of her either! What would you do?

Count your blessings, and if she is really insistent you can just pay what she agrees is fair and save the difference between that and what YOU want to pay and give them really nice extras throughout the year (ie Christmas bonus, birthdays, invite them out for dinner on you, send them on a date night to a special something they would enjoy, etc)

Is there some other way to help out? Like buying hay maybe? Did you explain to her how much normal boarding costs?

I've told her what normal cost are around here & she thinks its crazy. I buy all my own hay & they have a hay field that's baled on shares. We gave them & nice meat bundle from the local butcher shop for Christmas & have plans to give her a gift card for a local spa for mothers day/ her B-Day. Granted, I've done a lot of repairs to the barn & fences, but I look at it as it's a benifet for my animals. I'm thinking I may just have the best BO in the world!
