I want my horse to have more hay at night, and fresh shavings in his stall once or twice a week. I am more than willing to provide these things, I'll even clean his stall out if I need to. I just don't want to be a pain in the ass. I know I can't expect perfection, but they are simple requests.

As of right now, if he gets hay in his stall, it's because I trudged out to the round bale in the pasture and grabbed a pile. I know hay is expensive and I don't expect special treatment, but if I provided it, would it be an imposition to ask her to give it to him? And if I offered to clean his stall out once a week and throw a new bag of shavings in, would that seem a little too... invasive? I dunno, I just don't want her to think I don't approve of how she does things.

What should I do?
I would have a chat with the person in charge of feeding and cleaning. If you are boarding at a facility, you should be able to have open conversation with someone and voice any questions or concerns you may have.
