You need to remove your emotions from it and think strickly from the point of view of what is best for the horse. They are not cheap. I had to pick up two part time jobs on top of my regular 40 hr a week day job to pay for the increased costs my horse had from being a rescue and needing to get healthy. Vet bills will cost money and potentially lots of it. To get my horse fattened up and healthy, and she was by no means this bad, it was costing me an extra $300 a month on top of my board bill.
This horse needs to see a vet and be removed from the current property and to a place that will actually care for him. Yes he is yours but when I board a horse I expect the boarding facility to properly feed my horse and to let me know if there is any problems with their eating habits immediately.
All of you are right I will check into another boarding place.Thx
