Is this reasonable/unreasonable?
Where I work now there are 12 horses on the property, but it is soon to be going up to 16 horses. Here's my problem: I'm paid for two hours worth of work, that's two hours to get all paddocks clean, waters scrubbed and refilled, horses in and fed, which boils down to 10 minutes per paddock, and even though I do have help to bring them in, I'm always a bit late getting off (but get paid only for the two hours worth of work). So what happens when there are 16 horses? 7.5 minutes per horse (paddock, water, feeding and turn in) I don't think that's reasonable, personally? I don't know how long it should take... and maybe I'm just slow, but for most of the horses it's a 1-2 minute walk from paddock to barn and I'm just curious as to what you guys think?
