They have them at boarding facilities now, but think I would be willing to keep their horses cheaper..NOT.
My mom allowed one of her friends to board with us 10 years ago. She ended up with 3 horses here, and $2000 behind in board before she finally moved. She lived 45 minutes away and came out once a month or so. It was crazy. We never got any money.

never again...

I've managed places in the past, so I know all about the headaches of boarders. That's maybe why this is driving me up the wall. Before if a boarders horse's feet looked the way theirs do, & they weren't trying to fix them, I would've had no issue stating that something needed to be done yada yada.
