I'm glad SOME people don't have horses..... vent

Today it was a little warmer so I gave Cinny a nice play/workout. I warmed him up really good (it was still only about 50) and then I cantered and slowly let him out into a nice handgallop, and then let him out a bit more. It was a BLAST! Then I turned Cinny out and let him run/play some more. He got pretty drippy sloppy sweaty so I hand walked him for a good 15 minutes and brought him back into the barn. By then it was dark and the temperature was dropping quickly and was already down to 40. So, I put Cin in the cross ties with his nice cooler blanket on to help him finish drying out (he's not clipped) before putting him to bed.

Well..... Our barn owner has this guy that helps our BO with the full serve horses and he thinks he is the AUTHORITY on horse care. I left Cin on the cross ties with a friend babysitting while she groomed her horse and I went to take care of my friends's 4 horses for the night. When I get back the helper guy was freaking out at me because I had a blanket on my hot sweaty horse and I'd better get it off because I was going to make him overheat and get sick! (I rolled my eyes at this, couldn't help it). So I tried to explain to him that it was a cooler blanket intended to be put on sweaty horses in cold weather to help absorb the sweat and dry them out, and cool them out after a hard workout when the weather is cold. He kept repeating that I didn't know what I was talking about and that you should NEVER put blankets on sweaty horses! Such a freak.

Later after I put him away and I was sweeping up my grooming area the BO came in and we were talking about Cin's auto water (the heater is busted). I asked if it was fixed yet and he said no and told me what to do when/if the water freezes and that he and the helper dude would check during the day until it's fixed to make sure he has water. I told him I was very concerned about my horse not being able to get water when it freezes. So then stable helper dude chimes in "Well, horses can go 24 hours without water you know." And I just ignore him. So he repeats himself louder. So I look at him and told him that although that may be the case, I don't want my horse to go without water for 24 hours and I don't think he should have to go without water when being worked. BO says nothing at all and I really really wish he would tell his freaky barn helper dude to not tell us how our horses should be cared for. grrrrr

If he had a horse, I would really feel so sorry for it!

Tell him he can go 24 hours without drinking. Then tie him up and put a cooler on him....and a muzzle.

hmmmm, good idea only I think I would prefer to put a heavy sweatshirt on him and soak him down with a hose and then let him stand there in soaking wet clothes for the full effect, and no water for 24 hours

What a dweeb. O.o Nothing more aggravating than having advice spewed at you from someone who doesn't have a clue.

Just ignore him. Does he ever take care of the horses? I'd be kind of worried if he does...

My horse, and my friend's horses are all self care so no, he doesn't care for my horse. The most he does is take him to or from turnout if for some reason they need him out of his stall (repairs, etc) or possibly give him his pre-measured feed/hay in my absence if I go on a trip and ask the BO to have it done.

I wouldn't let that guy do ANYTHING else with Cinny. He might chop his forlock into bangs or something!
