It would be less stressful on your horse to only move once. My choice would be to wait and in the meantime make daily visits even if it is an inconvenience .

agreed, pr have someone (a horseperson) go out for you and check on her and make sure everything is up to your standards. Ask the BO to only feed her specific things (IE not whatever caused the runs) and take every preventive measure you can for her health in the mean time.

It depends on the horse, my guys don't get stressed from moving because they are used to shows. Them I would move ASAP to a different place with better care. Even so I have boarded 40 mins away and driven out twice a day while in school. You just have to wake up earlier and get red bull on wholesale :P

I don't expect them to go over her with a fine tooth comb on a daily basis, that's my job as an owner.
If you want a higher level of service though it's your right to move.
Very true. And if she was standing around they wouldn't notice her walk. I think in this instance you are over reacting and the average person would not have known.

Are you real sure that scald was caused by diarrhea? Could she have been in heat? I have seen mares get exactly like that if they had a gelding teasing them over a fence when they were in heat. The hussies just stood there for hours peeing down one leg. I would watch her cycles and see if she is back in in 16 - 18 days.

I was thinking that too, looks like a scald from the acid in the urine. All of a sudden diarrhea, then nothing? And the slight lameness? Prolly kicking while squealing and contacted with something hard.

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!

Cherie, that makes more sense because her lady parts didn't have any manure around them so I was didn't think it was manure either

She had crust down her legs too, although it was brown and hard it could have been that she was in heat which would make me feel a bit better. I honestly thought that someone switched her feed (she's on a special diet) without telling me. But we are moving stables tomorrow so I'm really excited!

Turns out the other place's ring isn't as deep as I thought it was, so I think it'll be fine. Plus fields and trails!
