Janet, as much as it's a nice dream the reality is you get to put up with a lot of crap. Your contract has to be very clear on what you are willing to provide in the boarding fee. Blanketing, flymasks, holding for farrier are all additional services for which you must be paid. Either that or you increase the boarding fees across the board for everyone. Unless you can afford to hire a barn cleaner you will be doing poop duty every morning without fail, after you turn the horses out. Then bedding the stalls. Even paddocks need periodic cleaning. You may find you don't have much time to ride or even spend time with your own horses.
