I don't know how you throw your hay, but with my two I found that if I just put 3 or 4 flakes out for each of them in two piles that a lot of it was getting wasted. I've started spreading out the flakes into different places. This morning there were 8 flakes all together in 8 different spots...where they had to walk to each flake. There is basically no waste anymore, even with them getting that much twice a day. With this type of feeding, both of them are starting to gain weight. I'd rather mine to be a little on the chunky side going into winter...instead of trying to put weight on them once the bad cold weather actually starts.

I would also contact the investigator. It may help you out in the long run. He/she will probably tell you if you need to start looking for another barn.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

Another vote to contact the investigator.

I admit I am confused. You say yourself that the barn owner tells you they do one thing as far as caring for your animals and you know by your own visualization that it is not happening. Why exactly do you want to stay some place that the barn owner is more than willing to simply lie to your face? Do you think this is the only topic they lie to you about?

I'm pretty close to you too...I work in Bellbrook, and live near the Dayton Airport.

My trainer has her guys here:
Home
And it is gorgeous...but more expensive- 290 self care and like 550 full care. (bellbrook)

I used to take lessons here:

And I really like the owner, but I haven't been out in a couple years. They are 440.00 full care. (Bellbrook)

I also am wondering which barn you are at-if only so I never steer anyone I know that way! And, I'll add to the MOVE vote!

I still have no heard if they are actually coming or if it was just talk, I'm not really sure. I can prove both of my horses are mine and we do have a contract. I think I have to give 60 day notice regaurdless.

If the BO is not feeding your horses - that is a violation of the contract.

60 days?

Move, move, move.

Like someone else said, the BO is LYING to YOUR FACE about the care of your horses. And you aren't moving?
Don't just google stables. Ask around, look around. There are tons of hole-in-the-wall stables that provide excellent care for awesome prices.

You know I had the same problem and of course I was friends with the girl who was caring for my horse. But we ended up moving him to a different barn and he fattened right up. Sometimes you just got to do whats right for your horse weather it hurts the barn owners feelings or not. You don't want your horses taken away.
