Of course the BO isn't to blame for the injury but I'd certainly be annoyed with the BO for missing it.
In my eyes part of the daily routine needs to be a look over the horses. I could understand missing something small or tucked away behind a leg. Not that.
Meh. Honestly, she is great, and is doing a wonderful job taking care of Walter. She felt horrible, she cried, and we are working together to get him back on track. She loves this horse. I guess if you believe in Karma, she got it back, as her filly did the same thing.
She cleans his leg when I can't get out, and keeps me posted during the day how he is. I am really happy at this barn. If this had happened at the last barn I boarded at down the road, that BO would have charged me out the a$$ for every little thing.
I have nothing bad to say about her. No one is perfect. Sometimes things are missed.
