    They go outside when the weather isn't too bad, but when I kick the poop out of the way, it's more like the first layer that just gets shoved out of the one spot that she stands in. I've looked for other farms nearby, but they're all more expensive for no better care. We're moving sometime this winter though, early spring at the very latest, to a very nice barn a couple minutes away. She's not mine yet, I only lease her for now.

    Self care is a lot cheaper. I know I could never afford to keep a horse on full board.

    If you're open to self care do a letter box drop seeking agistment, or put a wanted ad in the feed store.

    I don't have the option to move her yet, but when we buy her were moving that day. She's my friend horse, so wherever they want her is here she'll stay until we buy her.

    Pm me and tell which area you are in, South county, north county or west county. I will see if I can help you find something else. I know a few people, mostly west though.

    I would rather have a nice pasture board place and forget the stall. The poor care had to be obvious when you did a pre visit. You should be ale to find a nice safe place with out a stall in your price range I would assume.

Do you know if smearing Vaseline on the bottom of their hooves to keep them cleaner and keep all that yucky stuff out? I heard it works pretty well, and was thinking I could try that for the fact that she stands in the gross stall.

    If you really were concerned wrap them in duct tape

    IMHO - If there is room in an 8 x 10 stall to kick manure to the side, there can't be much manure.
    Sure there can. I used to board at a stable we're the stallions stall was never cleaned nor did he get out for excersize and it just mounded up in the corner. In 2 years I saw him out of the stall maybe twice except to breed a mare

    I didn't go with them to the pre visit. I'm not the mares owner, I just lease. But I'm the only one who does anything with her. I would rather have pasture boarding for her too but there's nowhere in my area that offers it. Trust me, I've looked.

    Most stallions manure in one spot. They use their scent to cover another scent.

    Does the BO do most / all of the work himself? You mentioned he's "old". How old? Elderly? Does he live by himself? The day he is not taking care of the horses while insisting that no one helps out "because he's set in his ways" sounds like dementia / Alzheimer's to me. A terrible, sad situation, regardless.
