Boarding horses can be so stressful! I am out at the barn everyday. I pay one of the help there to feed in the a.m. When I am working. I know it doesn't happen sometimes. It seems like my horses hadn't been fed for the last three mornings so there was a big emotional discussion tonight about that. I chose to give her the benefit of the doubt and keep her on because I really like her and I know she really needs the money. For me it's the honesty issue. If you can't feed, just let me know and I'll get up early and go there do it myself. Someone left the water on all day and flooded part of my horses pasture and yesterday somebody messed with my mare's halter ... the lead rope was attached to the side ring. Oh and two days ago two Percherons got into my colt's grain and ate an entire half-bin (50 lbs) of Ultium Growth grain because somebody didn't close the gate correctly. Third time this has happened. Just keep telling myself that I love the covered arena and the quasi-manager trainer is an awesome go to person. Just a little too loosey goosey for me in the property management area :((
So jealous of you all that hopefully don't know what I am talking about because you have your horses on your own property!
End of rant.
