Rideordie112; I don't have to cover all expenses, just the difference between the board at this place ($225) and the new place ($360), which is $135. My mom and stepdad will cover farrier, and the new place does vaccinations/wormings for free.
Endiku; Just the other day when I was out there, Jay asked me if I watered Chief (my friend's horse) and I said no, and asked why. He said he was asking because it was put into the wrong bucket and that he figured I knew better to do that since he had asked us not to, but he just wondered. My thoughts about this are no, I didn't water him, but what if I did? I thank the person who watered him, because he obviously needed it if his bucket was empty. I don't understand WHY we can't help maintain our horses stalls…..
Granted, the guy is like 800000 years old and has been doing this his whole life, but that definitely doesn't account for this kind of negligence to these horses. My friends parents signed the papers for boarding, so I don't know what all they said (technically, it wasn't my business to be in -.- ).
