Thanks, Tazzie. I'm not familiar with the barns and people on this area because I came from north of Dayton and I'm not into contesting, dressage, hunter/jumper, combined, eventing stuff. That's what's very prevalent down here. Up north, it's your basic open shows.

Anabel, I didn't like that part either because it's a 2 quart scoop so it's limited a lot. The self care people don't have that restriction, though because they provide their own hay and grain. If I want him to get up to 1.5 scoops and 3 flakes if hay per feeding, it'll be an extra $50/mo. It wouldn't so bad if the hay weren't so inconsistent. The stuff they got recently is terrible quality! Unfortunately, the hay situation around here isn't that great for cheap hay, which is what they buy.

Luckily I have never had to board my horses.......I've had a few boarders here, I have one that's been here for about 7yrs. now (he's had two different horses here), the other one I had a problem with, she was forever moving things, using our's and the other boarders stuff without permission, last spring I finally told her she had to move her horse. The boarder I do have is great to get along with, we both feed the same feed/hay/minerals/etc....his horse had an accident a couple years ago and degloved his leg. When the accident happened I spent months cleaning his wound/hauling his horse to the vet for him and never asked for extra $ to do it, I do this because I love his horse like he is my own. I put some stuff on the scar every second day in the winter here becuase the owner asked me to and I don't charge him extra to do that, it only takes a minute of my time. I would love to have an indoor arena LOL but probably won't happen in the near future.
You shouldn't have to put up with stuff going missing/misplaced or used that is your's! As for blanketing, none of our horses have blankets......they are out 24/7 with a shelter/bush they can go into when it's windy/rainy/or freezing cold wind chills like now.
