Not only that, but they can get skin rot/infections from lying in wet filth. We have 2 horses at our boarding stable that may
get their stalls cleaned every 14-20 days. Both got horrible infections around their girth area. The BO doesn't care so we have been sneaking wheelbarrows of fresh sawdust into the stalls when no one is looking. We've tried cleaning the stalls ourselves but it makes the situation worse-the horse owners don't come out at all if they think someone is cleaning for them!
This is a horrible situation and for all the talk it doesn't sound like your parents really care. Push & push to get the horse out of there ASAP!
