same here, as they expect feeding that often.

but really, i am not complaining about the horses being at home. i boarded for a while and would only get to the barn a couple times a week at best. this is so much better!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

I'm in the 7 days a week crowd since mine are kept here at home but I only go once a day unless something is up. Right now I'm getting a forced "vacation" from the barn and tomorrow it will be 2 weeks since I've done my barn chores and it's starting to drive me a little batty. While I could probably feed just fine everyone knows me well enough that they know I'd end up with a pooper scooper in hand, scrubbing water tanks, filling up feed containers and the myriad of other things I do at the barn on a daily basis, so I'm not allowed in the barn. LOL

ehh kinda depends. Right now 3-4 days per week. Used to be every day, up to 3 times per day. If we have a bad couple weeks during the winter I'll be there every day to check on waters and blankets and lunge if there's no turnout due to weather. We have super mild winters, warm even, but occasionally we have a winter where there's a week or two where horses are stuck inside and waters freeze and all that fun stuff.

4 for myself and my own lessons (it will move to 5 or 6 as I bring my horse back into work)

5 for my daughter who volunteers there and takes lessons

Every minute there is a minute I feel is well-spent!

Twice a day 7 days a week as mine live at home. If I don't feed them they don't get fed. I try to ride 3 times per week. My daughter rides 6-7.

3... sometimes 4 days a week. The barn is only about 15 minutes from my house, but I have two dogs that also require attention after work! So, I try to divide my time so they aren't cooped up all day, either.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon

I go to the barn five days a week. I always try to go more though!

Any tips for keeping a grey horse grey would be greatly appreciated! ;D
