    Question Is it too soon?

    Well, after a long, hard, and stressful move to a new stables, we are finally settling in. Well, my horse is. I'm not. I'm having a few problems, and i've only been there for about a month, and i'm not really sure if it's....too early..to start asking for a bit of change. I don't want to be the " asks for a raise after a month of work" type of person.

    Anyway, the largest problems I am having is

    1) the dogs, there are 5 of them. They are all kept in spare stalls, and I kid you not, sound like they are on the verge of killing you the moment you walk through the doors. And today, the small one decided he would do circles around me while lunging.

    2) the BO has started feeding my horse extra food ( I.e charging me extra board) without even asking or notifying me. When we first moved there, my horse lost about 100 pounds that he really didn't need to loose, so we asked her to give him lots of hay, and complete feed. A few weeks later, he was looking better, come to find out she had added 2 extra supliments to his grain each day. So now i'm worried what else she does without my knowledge ( my most recent fear is that she will get my horses feet done ( her neighbour is a farrier) without my knowledge.

    I'm only 15, and am a bit uncomfortable telling an adult what to do, not to mention I am a new boarder ( like I said in the beginning) anway, any advice as to what I should do? I don't want to get my parents involved, they have been annoyed for the last few months at a whole whack of random crap, so I really don't want them telling me how much they regret buying me a horse.

    I would confront her . You are the owner of the horse and she should not be doing stuff with or to him without your permission. Ask her to at least ask you first.It could also avoid a health issue because if she were to give him something he was allergic to you could have a seroius problem. Also ask her if there is a place you can put the dogs when you are out working your horse. The lady who feeds where I am wasn't feeding quite right so I politely asked her to give my boy less and who needed more she understood completely and took what I said and used it im also 15 but when it comes to the horses I wont hesitate to say something
