Is thrush a common occurrence with your horse? Why don't you make it out every day to pick it? I couldn't fathom letting a horse sit in his own muck for a week...I would definitely board somewhere else if you can't do it daily for him.

I mucked it daily myself, I am just saying it only gets stripped once a week by the BO. You could pay 60 extra a month to get it picked everyday, but money is tight as it is and why pay for something I can do myself!

Ah, okay. Makes sense! As long as your horse's stall is cleaned daily!

We keep everyone inside when the weather is horrid and stalls are cleaned at night only (by myself). If my stall flooder has a giant wet spot in the middle of his stall the BO will shovel that out in the morning for me but that's it.

99% of the time though, the only thing different between everyone going out or staying in is horses in stalls when I arrive at night and larger piles of poop against the backs of stalls.

Bedding cost $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ every bag/wheelbarrow used cost more money. I understand why they limit the amount needed. If you want more bedding in your stall.. go to the farm store.. buy it and add it!

Can you not bring you own bags of shaving if you need extra?

Horses make me a better person.

Personally, I think you're complaining over something that isn't a big deal, at all.

I asked my BO if she could feed once daily so I could put my nare on some grain to gain a bit more weight faster..She said no, even though she has a pasture with horses who get grain..my pasture doesn't though, can't switch the herds! *flails screaming omg*.

The stalls/run-in got cleaned once a day..if the horses stayed in for two weeks because of weather with limited turn out in the arena..You guessed it, once a day stall cleanings in the morning.

Stalls do not get THAT bad within 24hrs. They get bad when days go by.
When my horse had a stall from 8pm-6am overnight, it use to go two/three days depending on what she did in it. Rarely peed (black mats let it splatter lol) and only pooped in the two back corners. No harm, no foul. She did most of her potty time during her turn out during the day, so it didn't hurt anything to leave that extra pile and a half in the corner for the next day.
