Thanks! They are fine with me supplying pellets for him, even tho it is a little (minimally) inconvenient for them. I probably won't ask for any discount in board, since the cost to me is very little, and worth my peace of mind.
I will let them know about the hay, altho it is SO yummy up north, it may be worth a road trip to get some! It is about $4/bale and quality is much better. For now he seems fine, adapting well, so I will just watch and see. I am already seeing that 2 flakes here equals 1 up north.....
Oh-he is in Berryville.....

I would never feed my horses sweet feed. Our 5 yr. old TB was put on it at his old barn because that was the routine.... it made him positively crazy. We had to take him off it to save his life.....he flipped out so badly that he'd gallop around madly, rearing and bucking, and we were afraid he'd tear a tendon or break his darn leg.....

NEVER will I use that stuff.

I would provide my own feed and if they refused I would find someplace else to board :)

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

Thanks Peggy Sue-they are fine with it, thankfully, since it is not easy to find someplace with an indoor who will alllow "all disciplines" (western). Huge h/j/dressage/event country around here. (which I USED to do...

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
