So I recently moved my horse because I was at a top show barn, and I am not really into showing right now, and so I didnt take lessons, I was paying $430 a month, and I must say the care was excellent.. but there were some personal issues between me and the owner.. so I decided to move my horse, I did the beginning of august and so she has been at this new place for about a month, and it is a smaller 10 stall non show barn, every one jus does there own thing, which I have liked because the arean is more availale all the time, but... I am not seeing some issues I don't like, my (horsey) parent, which is my dad, thinks that at the other barn my horse was spoiled, I call it excellent horse care, this new place seems to skimp on a lot of things to A) make a profit, B) not do alot of work. I am now paying $367 and I got the feeling I was paying that for a stall, but it seems my horse is left outside all the time and only brougt into feed and is put back outside, even if it is raining.. yes there are big shelters but my horse is new to the paddock pecking order and may be last to get in the shelter... and to the hay and water... etc.. she hasnt dropped any weight which is good, but I would like for my horse to be brought in at night if it is raining, and put during the day.... so do I talk to the owners.. and then make a decision to go back up to a "better" barn or wait it out... at the other barn my horse was never left out in the rain, and never sick, and was in perfect health... I don't want any vet bills.....
So what do I do? Ask for her to be brought in and pay more if needed,..??? Any suggestions are welcome!
