Hope it goes well and you get the acreage. be careful about boarding at a friends, things can go south in a hurry, Thats the only place where I boarded that i had feed come up missing.
Hope everything works out for you, and when you leave , if they ask on the day you are packed and trailered, just say, because of the missing feed .

Thanks for the replays. Going to ask why we are going through so much feed and see what I get for an explanation.

You probably won't get a good explanation. I know someone who sent her horse away for training, they claimed he was going through a 60-pound bale a day plus a bag of feed every 3 days. And he came back skinny. When he came back his owner put him on 1/3 bale a day, and 4 lbs of feed and he gained all his weight back pretty quickly.

I have boarded before and always had problems, but then I was "spoiled" to having my horses on my daddy's property. Last place I boarded at, the lady who was unofficially in charge was always complaining and smart mouthing about something from the fact that we didn't lunge our horses before we rode, to the fact that I went home and cooked a meal every night, instead of just having soup and sandwiches, which would not heat up my kitchen, to taking over my kids riding lessons that I was paying for, for her own self!! This was not only rude, but embarrasing as well. She would actually go saddle her horse, and come join in with her own questions and problems!!
