We are done with boarding

Well seems like our BO might be giving our feed to other horses We buy better feed than available at barn and at the rate our horse goes through it she should be fat. 40lbs in 3 day in addition to hay. Other issues but won't go into it. We are very fortunate to have a friend who said we can move our horse to her house. If things go really well the deal we are working for a 10 acre farm will go through

Cute....50 lb bag should be about one week, feeding like I feed. Which actually comes down to 16 feedings but don't worry about other 2.

You have been getting shafted big time.

Horses make me a better person.

Great to hear you found a situation that works well for you! I could not imagine being unhappy with where I board.

Wow, I'm glad you're getting the horse out of there.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

One of the "joys" of boarding. I soooo like being at a private barn by myself. No stolen tack, borrowed tack, tack not put back where it belonged, hay and feed disappearing at alarming rates, only my messes to clean up and no attitudes to deal with other than a snotty gelding once in awhile. Can you tell that I'm jaded??

It's good you've got a plan in place. Keep us posted with the acreage deal - it's hard work having your own place but well worth your peace of mind.

I knew of a boarder who was stealing feed from another boarder. A hidden camera caught her in action. BO knew nothing about it.
