    He does all of the work himself, and he also goes out into the field on his tractor and farms all day. He's probably about 65, but he's got other health issues (physically, bad hip, tractor accident). No, he lives with his wife, but she doesn't do anything with the horses.

    Been a couple of weeks since you said anything, so I hope everything has been resolved and you and your horse are in a better situation.

    I understand what you're going through. The second I turned 16 my mom told me to go out and get a job and pay for my horses. Takes everything I've got to keep them in the level of care they deserve. Board alone takes up most of my pay check, then the farrier, vet bills, and God forbid you want to show. Then theres more money.

    But, that being said, they are absolutely worth all the hard work. You sound very mature for 15 and like you have your head on straight. I wish you lots of luck in getting your mare out soon, and having her as your own.

    If you are not happy with the care being provided you should move your horse to a different facility!

    If you can not afford to move your horse there is not much to do.
    Repairs on a farm such as moving large pieces of concrete can be quite expensive and will probably not hapen if requested.

    I help run a boarding facility and the quality of the care provided and the safety of the horses is top priority to me and everyone whom works here!

    When it comes to footing in a pasture horse's aren't stupid. They have an uncanny ability to map every square inch. They know where every rock and hole is. It has been proven by observing blind horses in the wild.

    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!

    I know how hard it is. I'm 13 so I obviously can't even apply for a workers permit until August, when I turn 14. I rely on a lot of help from my grandparents and parents and I know that they won't be around forever(my grandparents) so I'm trying to be as independent as I can. Babysitting is a GREAT idea.. that's what I'm going to start doing.

    About the barn situation, I know that you're doing all you can. I mean people, don't get mad at her because the horse isnt out of there, as she has no choice but to keep her there until she buys her. Once you buy her though, she needs to be moved. Stalls should be cleaned about once a day. Even if you have to do it yourself. Who cares what Jay thinks? And I know you should respect your parents, but in that situation, you need to ignore them and do what's best for Duchess. That's what I would do. And if your stepdad knows ANYTHING he should be flipping out as much as you are! Just do what's best for her. I don't even go anywhere with my friends... I'm all about my horse.

    Yeah, I know what you mean about not doing anything with friends... Lol. Jay is actually in the hospital because he got kicked in the pasture, so he's not there and I don't know if the stalls get cleaned at all (or if they even go in their stalls since the care of the horses is now up to his wife and cousin...) but anyway, I didn't want to do her stall because my parents said not to because "we don't want to piss him off". -.-
