Now that is one thing most boards do have in common, you can start threads but you can't always stop them, and you certainly can't get all the people to agree with you or see it your way, it rarely happens in life.

The only thing you can do is follow the advice you have given yourself and walk away, we can all play quite happily here, no need for you to hang around.

Our obsession is not with you, but with the message that you opened with, because there is a drought, there are hay shortages, prices have gone up, and sadly as a boarder you have to pay up, or if you can find a better deal move on, it's simple really.

Once again - how much are you paying, how many services are you getting/what is your facility like, and what area are you in? I can do a simple search on CL to find out approximately how much hay is going for, and how much other places are asking for board. I'll do your "homework" for you.

Hmm, tough call between obtuse and plain old everyday trolling in my book

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Doesnt matter what my board is the posters in here will most likely say I'm lucky I don't have to pay more, not taking that bait
I know for a fact my BO is exploiting the situation.she has practically admitted it to someone who left her barn
She is trying to buy extra hay to price gouge this winter
It's disgusting that ppl in this business would consider that
She doesn't need the $$$$ it is just a side business
Anyway
I don't expect any support or understanding from anyone in here
But you've asked several times just wanted to explain to you
I can leave whenever I want but it's still hard to move when my horse has settled in here
His welfare and happiness comes first

Sure. Fine. You simply must be right, like you 'always' are. Of course you're the perfect boarder. Nothing screams "perfect boarder" like screaming that you're being screwed over without any sort of proof... on the interwebs. And then rejecting help when it's offered.

*giggle*

because apparently im a glutton for punishment im going to spell it out for you.

Quote:
There's that "you"and "OUR" again Sarcasm. Using your words against you...showing you what you were saying...way to take my meaning, throw it in the trash, stomp all over it, and then twist it to make your own point. Just wow.
I'm serious.. Why do you bother keeping the thread going when you obviously don't care about my greedy BO exploiting the hay situation? because your ORIGINAL POST was about the drought being FAKE...how many times do people have to tell you that your ORIGINAL POST had NOTHING to do with your BO you didnt bring your BO into it until after you got pissed about people talking about the drought. Seems to me this is just personal now. nobody is trying to make it personal that I can see. I was the one trying to defend you and give you the benefit of the doubt....you twisted my words around to make your point. I would say the mob mentality in here is extremely counter productive,and not very welcoming if I might add....where is the mob mentality you speak of....you are the one making accusitions, and being unwelcoming to our opinions, on a PUBLIC forum.
You obviously want to hear what I have to say otherwise you would stop responding...despite what you obviously believe I do appreciate everybodies opinion. Not trying to speak for everybody else but im guessing they feel the same way since they too are on a PUBLIC forum. That's what im flipping fighting for in the military.
Am I right ? I usually am ...catty much? And you don't consider this attitude rude???
My BO did not even give notice of the huge increase
But who cares right? once again a complete lack of information until after you are pissed that we didnt say what you wanted us to magically read your mind and know about. 99% of the people on here from my experience honestly want to help...but how can we if you withhold information until your pissed and throwing it in "our" faces (our being the people you keep calling out for no reason)
I am moving forward..you should too have a good life.

People arent so much "obsessed" with you. Theyre just not going to sit back and listen to you trash em....theres still some on here that were trying to help you out......

*Insert something witty*

some hay growers may stock thier hay and sell at a higher winter price.
Most Farmers work 18 hr days, don't get bonuses don't get raises. Deal with EPA rules, water shortages, paying for water and not having it delivered (canals /ditches ) or using water wells, and if you had a well and watch the electric meter spin when that well kicked on.. you would faint. Water cost, baling twine cost, seed cost, fuel cost, or if you have to pay a worker, or someone to come cut and bale, cost.. There may be some greedy guys out there, but it is a supply and demand crop . I had to pay a little over ten grand this year for hay to feed the horses here and it will last 9 maybe 10 months.. and it cost for insurance about 80 to 100 month to cover boarding a horse so that money you pay for board is not making anyone rich. Do yoy clean your own pens? Supplements come out of your pocket? Salt licks? O maybe you pay for the barn help. Pay to mend the stalls, barns fences ?? Pay the insurance? Hmmm... maybe some research needed done first.

First, JDI & RC, I just want to take this moment to say "I luv ya, man".

Second, LMBB. With all due respect, white flag is waiving, approaching calmly & quietly, I'm going to ask a question, and this is simply me trying to better understand your situation, and possibly (depending on your answer) tactfully suggest another point of view for you to ponder.....

Have you been in a position that required you to make financial decisions for a business? This includes staffing, purchasing, accounts payable, etc.

Again, my white flag is raised, & I'm not making any sudden moves. I'm just asking a question.
