Question Barn Switched Feeds...Need Advice Please

I have this posted in the Nutrition section of the forum too, but not getting much luck on any replies and it's partially about nutrition, but also partially an extension of my previous venting post about my barn. So anyway, here's the link - any comments or information would be much appreciated! Thank you!

I'm not going to pass comment on the feeds themselves because I am not familiar with those brands at all. However I will say that in my view and experience it is totally unacceptable for your horses feed to be altered in any way without your express permission. And the fact that you are less experienced than your yard owners does in no way excuse them.

Your horse, your rules.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I feel the same way. I'm by no means a beginner or inexperienced when it comes to horses. I've owned, ridden, shown, and been at this barn for over 11 years now, just never had to deal with this particular type of situation before. Though I probably should have taken a bit more interest in the nutrition area before, I never had much reason to. The barn owner is just disrespectful and doesn't really care much anymore from what I can tell, where I used to really respect and trust her. The last 1-2 years everything at the barn has gone downhill.
