    The key word is "paid". Payment implies accepting responsibility to provide whatever has been agreed upon. If the agreement was to provide water and check on/report conditions of the horses under their care then I would expect water to be available to the horses at all times and if there was an injury to be informed or yes I would be upset. I would also move my animals if the agreement was broken. Was your agreement in writing or oral, was there a possibility of misinterpretation on either of your parts?? Did they have a number they could contact you at any time as well as the number to the vet if the injury was life threatening? Did you ask why there was no water or call when the injury occurred? I'm asking out of curiosity as I've kept/keep horses on other property that didn't belong to me under similar circumstances and I keep horses on my property with agreements to provide water and basic care. I look over all the animals here on a daily basis and check water at least once a day if not twice depending on the size waterer and number of horses drinking. I certainly don't expect to watch them 24/7 or have mine watched 24/7 but I do provide/expect notice if I will be away for more than 24. I can see legitimate reasons for there to be no water but would have expected a call so that I could resolve the issue or move the horses. Now if it was simply neglect then time to move your animals. Even if they weren't paid if there was an agreement in place then if they could not keep the agreement you should have been informed. You should either way have some means by which to check up on your animals to make sure their needs are being met. Edited to add that for some reason my computer didn't drop the replies until after I posted.

    It isn't on paper, my parents, me and them just spoke about it. She would check on, water, and fix the fence, and if my horses were to ever get out she would go get them... I do feel like I'm being angry a little bit to much but it just gets to me when my horse gets hurt from a fence they said wasn't going to cause a problem.

    So maybe I do just need to stop getting mad at things I can't control.. sorry people.

    Do what YOU can .. check water as often as possible .. offer to help them mend the fence .. mend what you can of the fence ...

    After that, there isn't much you can do.

    Yes, I'd be mad about the lack of water as that is dangerous & easy to fix. However, if I kept my horse at a place with substandard care I would expect substandard care.

    Okay I can do that.. Checking the water isn't that bad either, I mean like I just have to walk there, but I thought she was doing it.

    I guess after hearing what you guys had to say, the only one to blame here is me, not my friend here, who is just trying to help with our bills, I feel bad now....

    There must be some other place to keep your horse. At least a place where the fences are verticle instead of horizontal.
