She sent me more texts. She still insists that the only solution is for Cinny to only be turned out half day and monster the other half. Cinny has had ulcers in the past and when I moved in to this barn I told her specifically that he was to be turned out all day with a round bale and if he couldn't have that it was a deal breaker, we would not move in. She said at the time ALL boarders were turned out ALL day. So to me this is sort of a breach of contract. I informed her that I insist on a turnout situation in which I do not feel like I am in danger when I get my horse, and my horse is to be turned out all day. This is what I contracted for, this is what I am paying for.
She now wants us to discuss it later this week as I am obviously currently "upset" about this and I need time to cool down.
I think my old barn has openings. It is a little more high stress for Cinny (not drama, he just stressed there) and it's more expensive but I think my husband would rather pay higher board than have my head kicked in by the demon spawn. The barn I was at before here has openings but they had 5 mysterious horse deaths last year....all boarders, all acute onset colic, hmmmmm. The other 3 barns in the area are very high drama. Sigh..... I love my barn. It sucks that I have to chose between the possibility of being charged at and trampled but living otherwise stress free or going to a stress barn :( I wish my BO would just get it through her head that the safety of boarders important.
