I really do not see much wrong at all. Like was said, manure is just organic plant matter, and if the deworming program is up to snuff there isnt really much to worry about. If the manure id dried(as I suspect in the arid climate it takes only a short period of time for it to turn to poop bricks) and raked over the sand it really isnt that bad at all IMO. It isnt like people poop filled with fats and chemicals and stuff, just undigested plant fibers. Not saying I bed with it, but in that situaton it really does not look harmful.
Those corrals do not look bad to me at all and as has been said, out west very common, called "mare motels" sometimes. They are lagre enough for the horse to move around during the day while not being turned out.
The water buckets in question look like they were just emptied. Maybe it is just before watering rounds? Maybe the horses in question play in thier water buckets and splased most of it out and drank the rest?
I really do not see anything to get in a tizzy over. Are you just assuming all that you said or did you actually take the time to speak to the facility management about the situations you posted to find out reasons?
Sounds to me like you did not.
