I guess maybe you have different expectations with rented property than I do.
I maintain the barn and keep it clean, same as I was doing with the stalls, etc.
You should. You are paying to rent it, it's your job to keep it clean and do the stalls.
The pasture is now at a point that it is all weeds. She blamed my horses for 'eating it down' but truth be told, it was never mowed and therefore never promoted good growth. I have been told by many neighbors that this pasture was never allowed to become a pasture and that's why the rocks and weeds have taken over when they built it 5 years ago.
Clear out the rocks and mow it. I have never lived in a rented house where they still came and mowed the grass. That only happens in big apartment complexes.
alexS- If it were as easy as walking the fence line, that would be fine. Fiance did that and was amazed at the amount of trees and shurbbery there was. We don't have a chain saw but took our hedge cutter and weed wacker and barely made a dent. I assume this was manicured at some point, but it no longer gets taken care of.
Spend some time and get it done. Buy or borrow a chain saw.
I realize that you are sounding like you are not wanting to do much work on the property but this is a matter of your horses safety.
The water trough is an auto-waterer where when the landlord (also neighbors) water pump went out, they took the house from the trough and connected it to our pump to get water to their house. That went on for weeks. There was no hose to disconnect and fill the trough. (I was lugging buckets of water from my house to the pasture- no easy task but I did it)
This is the only thing that your landlord should take care of in my opinion. In the mean time, buy a hose and run it out there so you don't have to carry buckets.
By the way, the board fencing is vinyl so if the horse leans on it they pop out. I don't know how because they are quite a #$#$@ to get back in place, lol!
You just have to space it correctly, so that early boards are not taking up too much of the in space leaving nothing for later boards.
I got the crazy 3 headed creature reaction. I always went out of my way to be thankful and be respectful but all 3 times you'd think I walked up to them and smacked them in the face with a sweaty sock. It was actually very frightening and eye opening to see the reaction. Maybe that hindered my ability to speak openly to them...
I think I might have freaked too. It's not unreasonable to expect you to own a hose. And you could have asked if you could feed her horse rather than can you feed it at a set time. I couldn't feed my horse at a set time every day.
