using barn manager's vet?
I moved my horse to a new barn several months ago. It's a small dressage-oriented barn. Just 9 horses and owners. The barn manager is nice, and I've figured out that it's best just to do things her way. :) However, it's time for fall shots and three of us booked a farm call with our usual vet. Now the manager is insisting that we use the vet she uses. My vet is more expensive, but their practice keeps better records and is more likely to come when I call them at 3 AM. I've been using these guys for 10+ years. The barn manager does not own the property, but she has total control of the barn. Can a barn dictate what vet you use? My feeling is that as long as I'm up-to-date on everything and can prove it, then I should be able to use my own vet. Ever heard of this?
