At the place where I board my 20yr old Arab/qh I believe all of the boarders are being underfed. There are 13 horses in the pasture and only 2 bales of hay that are in slow feed nets. My horse is one of the bottom horses and always has bites and has been losing weight. I had the vet out to check for other issues but she got a clean bill of health except for being skinny. When I told the barn owner what he said she kind of just brushed it off like it was no big deal. I don't want to move my horse because I live right behind the barn and at the moment another boarder and myself have a feeding plan so they get fed twice a day. She is beginning to put on weight but I think extra hay would help.
How do I bring it up to the barn owner that she isn't feeding the boarder horses enough? She isn't always very understanding and she is very 'money hungry' so she complains that the boarder horses waste to much hay. Any ideas would be appreciated.
