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?
