    It's not necessary to place blame (and a bad habit to get into) .. only to take the steps to change the current situation. Given the circumstances, you can only do what you can do ... so do it!

    In the end it's their property - you can't move onto a property with poor fencing and expect that to improve just because you are paying board.

    As for the water, it depends. An empty water trough does not necessarily equal neglect - is it ALWAYS empty? Or was it just that one time? It's summer after all, and sometimes they just go through water faster than we can keep up.

    The property owners being home doesn't mean that they have nothing better to do than fix fences and fill waters immediately as required. In the end, your board money isn't enough of a motivator to change how they manage their property.

    If you want more done, you either need to move (which doesn't appear to be an option) or start doing these things yourself. The catch to having the extreme luck of having horses at your age is that you are at the mercy of your parents in situations like this. If you don't see eye to eye on horse care, then unless you can find a way to make it work it may be easier on your conscience to hold off on horse ownership until you can call the shots.

    I would be upset in the case you are in. But an emotional reaction is not necessarily based on the total logical parameters of the situation.

    In any case, it sounds like, for right or for wrong, you will need to step into a gap here and add your energies to improving the state of care your horses receive. No need to feel bad. Just get busy.
