[QUOTE]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.

Haha, you have to love sayings that don't even make sense :P
I completely understand as well
[QUOTE]Unless there is a drastic temperature change -or when it rained on Monday and everyone was soaked and some blankets needed to be switched - we leave blankets on. I strongly suggest two blankets per horse. At some time the blanket will need to be washed and or repaired.
I do not charge for the once in a while take off or put on but there is no way I would be able to do it for nothing with 30 horses. My time is worth something!

It had gotten a liiitttlllee bit more often then once in awhile
and I don't want her to feel like I am taking advantage of her. Especially since Lucy is needing her blankets changed in the morning and the evening.
[QUOTE]Like many others, blanketing and boots etc are included in my board. But, I pay for full board, with turnout, at a show barn, so really, it all depends on the type of barn and type of board, as well as how many horses are being blanketed. In your case, I don't think there should be a charge if you pay board and yours is the only horse.

My friend has her four horses that she has to take care of as well. So I feel while most days it is not a problem for her to change out Lucy's blanket. It is getting close to the "me taking advantage of her", since Lucy needs her blankets changed so often.
[QUOTE]Very true, some of us have it included in the price of our board though, so it while seems like we aren't paying for it, we really are.
My board is one flat fee, irregardless of what my horse needs. Now my arrangement means that the BO does what she deems is most appropriate for my horse, blanket vs no blanket or multiple blankets, what feed/supplements she gets, her turnout time and where and so forth. Since I agree 100% with the decisions she makes regarding care, this situation is perfect for me and my happy, spoiled rotten horse.

*Sigh* it was so much more easier when I lived two minutes away and could do everything myself.....I wish I could afford full board like that!
[QUOTE]My BO doesn't do blankets (for the most part). But we did have a cold spell last week and she said she would put his blanket on if it looked like he needed it. H

Lucy is body clipped, so I have to blanket
I miss her winter coat now!
Thanks everyone! We decided on a flat fee and we will reevaluate if she is only changing them occasionly
