Thank you for your input, my friend is willing to help me blanket my horse (who is outside 24/7 at the moment, but comes to the barn with the other horses who are stalled at night) However, I do not want to to be unfair to her and want to give her a fair price for helping me out.

Blanketing for stall horses is included.. pasture boarders get charged a $1 each time I put the blanket on or take it off. Here in Texas its 70 during the day and 35 at night.. its alot of on and off and would add hours!

Blanketing isnt even offered where I board, so you have to do it yourself. Luckily the temp change isnt so signifigant that he can have the same blanket on at night as in the day, but if I know its going to be really warm during the day and semi chilly at night I just tell him to suck it up and eat some hay, so I can either put just a sheet on or leave him naked, (he has a pretty good coat, so he wont freeze or anything haha)

We don't currently charge but it's going to go up I think $25 a month. We have over 60 horses boarded at our facility. It doesn't take long to blanket the average horse, but multiply that times 60?? Bad business move to not charge!

Since you board with a friend why not offer to do some other chores in exchange for the blanketing service she will be giving you? Maybe you do all the stalls on weekends or something.

I think I am just going to discuss a lump sum, trying to keep track of it would be more of a pain than anything else

I was going to talk to her the other day, but people keep chiming in with more quotes

I had Lucy clipped because she is about to go into a bit more work and she sweats like a dog O.o so I definitely need to be on top of making sure she is blanketed/layered and unlayered lol.

I cannot imagine having to deal with 60 horses! I worked at a barn where they had about 40. However, almost none of them were ever blanketed, now I am happy with just taking care of my one :

I had brought the whole work in exchange idea up, but I think she likes to get out of the house and do the barn chores. I offered to do them when she didn't have time, but she always has time

Psssst. Dogs do not sweat like that.

And I totally understand the getting out of the house to do chores thing. I can see how the money would be better.

Nada. I either put it on myself or my BO does it when he thinks it should be put on or taken off. Like if its been snowing heavy out and he decides to bring the horses in and the blanket it kind of wet, he'll take it off and hang it up, then put it back on when they go out again.

I think what MIE was meaning that she isnt charged anything at her barn because it is included in the board payment. It isnt that she doesnt pay for it, it is built into board and isnt an extra fee.

Im the only boarder and Im not charged any extra. It has been cold and snowy latley so the blanket just stays on and is checked daily when grain is given. I never really bothered with blankets in past years but this winter I have April on pasture board (with a run-in shed) and have been riding more (yay for indoor at the place!!!) so I don't want her to get sick from being warm from riding and then being put outside.
