I predicated my statement on the basis that the horse has full time access to shelter, water and hay. I lived in the PNW and my horses had the choice to go in the shelter or stay out. Letting a horse get rain rot to that degree is sheer abuse and neglect and putting a blanket on a horse and never checking would have been just as bad. Did the horse also have a raging case of thrush?

I know I tend to be blunt, I will make more of an effort to try and see how my statements come across.

I wouldn't be too concerned if she doesn't report minor injuries to you. People with a lot of horse experience know what needs to be reported and what will be fine if left alone. I'm wondering if youk new immediatly of a fresh scrape if you'd be hurrying to put some sort of medication on it rather than allow it to heal on it's own.

Not reporting an injury is one thing but flat out not noticing it is another. She never looks over horses, checks for shoes or anything. She simply doesn't notice. I was always taught that as a care provider you should be looking over the horses as you feed them. Maybe it was just a quirk of the barns I was at before.

God, where do you LIVE? $470? That's cheap. My full board is $800 a month (work off $200 so I pay $600).

My horse is in Ijamsville MD.

Self care field board (hay, shelter and water provided) is $200. She has all kinds of tiers including "full care" and "partial care". Her self care includes hay as needed which is huge IMO.

We ended up going with a partial care where she gives him his feed and turns him out in the morning and I feed and bring him in at night. So I'm not at the $470 mark. I just leave a note regarding which blanket if any I want on him for the next day.

$800 a month would either be a mid level barn with training or the low range of a high end barn here.
