Just keep in mind that they might be a bit more expensive.
    I couldn't agree with you more!!

    You have the right to be as sensitive as you would like.

    Do we turn out without shelter - no. We have run in access in all turnouts.

    Do "we" blanket - no. Boarders have the option of blanketing their horse. I will make adjustments, reattach leg straps, etc. But I cannot trust a boarders horse as I trust my own. With my own I have the option to get on their case for being naughty.

    I will also tell my boarders if they choose to blanket they MUST have two. They get dirty, they rip, straps break. There is no sense in blankets if they are not maintained.

    Do not know what happened at this barn but sometimes they get soaked when rain comes and it takes a bit for the BO to get them all in.

    Glad you are moving some where new. It is always best to pick a barn that follows the same standards that you want applied. I am sure the way this barn does things is fine with many people. You will be happier in your new barn.
