Should I ask her to cover part of my loss?

I have a boarder who I go above and beyond for because I feel sorry for her horse.

Yesterday it was like 30 degrees here in the morning and her TB had lost quite a bit of hair on both sides of his neck. He isn't bald bt the hair is so thin that I can see skin and he was shivering. I put one of my jammie hoods on him with a blanket and he ended up shredding my hood! Those suckers cost $50. Should I ask her to reimberse me for part of it?

Your choice to put them one so you take the loss.

Did you ask her if you could put the hood on the horse before hand? Was it your blanket or hers?

I have to agree with Spyder. Unless she asked you to do it, it's on you. Rember, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

I also agree with the other posters. If she had asked to borrow your hood then yes, you can ask for a replacement. But you volunteered it out of the goodness of your heart, so she doesn't need to replace it.

If you were my BO and you put a hood on my horse because he was shivering and he destoryed I would volunteer to give you some money, just because I wasn't there to blanket my horse and you did.

Maybe bring it up in a conversation and see what she says.
The good thing is that it IS replaceable.

I agree with everyone else...If she didn't ask you to do it and it was out of the goodness of your heart, then it's on you. But, appylover31803 brings up a good point, if I were the border, I would feel kind of bad and want to help repay for it.

I also agree with everyone and I do agree with appylover too. But you might end up getting stuck with buying a new one

Did you ask her prior to putting it on? She may of known the horse would try to itch it off.

Why is the hair so thin? Skin condition?
