I boarded at a place for years, saw it go through 3 different BO's. The first was okay, was the owner's daughter (in her 20's - 30's), the place was run well, set feeding times, all horses fed, set mucking times etc., I don't remember a whole lot about her, then the second person was AMAZING. It was a woman and her partner, if I remember correctly when they started out they weren't married. She was very sweet, older lady, had a couple horses of her own, took the time to get to know each person and horse individually, did walk arounds constantly, including overnight. Her knowing each horse (there were over 100 at the facility) so well, saved my friend's gelding. She knew he never laid down in the middle of the day, and one afternoon, all he was doing was laying in the sun, no rolling or thrashing or anything, but she knew he didn't lie down, so she called owner. Ended up being rushed to emergency colic surgery where they took out quite a bit of intestine, as he had a tumor that had grown around part of his intestine, and cut off blood supply. I know many places that would just say "oh he's just sunbathing I guess, even if he never lies down, he's fine", but she knew that something was off. If I ever felt like my horse was "off", I knew I could tell Moe, and she'd check on him an extra couple of times, and if she saw anything at all, she'd call. I was never worried about my horse's care, and if they were looked after and loved, cause I knew that Moe was around. Third person, complete opposite, horrible stories. Moe ended up leaving with her husband because they decided to get their own ranch property in the neighboring town. We were all so bummed that she was leaving that we threw them a goodbye party. I still think about her, and wonder how she's doing. I've been to quite a few places, and most are okay, only a couple have been truly horrible, and then there wa this place with Moe that was the most amazing place ever.
