Currently keeping the horses on my friend's property on the San Mateo coast of California. It's a beautiful place with an actual ocean view and when it's dry it's great. Soon as it rains though, it produces a kind of mud which I'm convinced was conceived in the 5th or 6th layer of hell. The place where the horse paddocks sit is right between the foot of some hills and a creek, the area being a natural water catch with practically no drainage. At times it borders on standing water. Also, to dry out it would have to not rain for about a month and that pretty much doesn't happen this time of year.
I'm aggressively looking into someplace to take them to get relief from this situation as I'm getting worried about their health from living in these conditions, though because of the area we're in it's tough to find boarding that doesn't cost a fortune (one place is $800/month per horse).
Anyone ever been in a similar situation and if so, did your horses develop any health problems? If they did, how long did it take? They've been in there for just over two weeks so far and nothing yet, but I don't want to let it go that far if I can avoid it.
