It was made quite clear that I would not be "allowed" to help with feedings if I expected anything in return. On top of it, I'm already spending an extra $60 a month on shavings because she uses straw and I have concerns about his colicing issues and being on straw. I was told that I'm not entitled to any break on board for that either, even though I'm not using their bedding. I have no problem paying and supplying that myself, but she also complains constantly because everyone else will thing that the rest of the horses should be on shavings too. However, this was something that I cleared with her before bringing my new horse home.
I'm not passing judgements on any rumors, only what I am experiencing first hand. While I have concerns about the entire place, my issues and decisions are based on what affects me and my horse. The bottom line is that I am not comfortable right now with the situation that my horse is in. When we have tried talking to the BO about any concerns in the past, it was always blown off.
On a side note, sillybunny is offering her opinion and experiences. I don't think that's being a negative person in any way. I always value her input on different situations! Just because someone offers an opinion, that doesn't mean that everyone else will do as they say.
Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.
