Buy a few bags of beet pulp and supply your own 1 lb scoop (a 1lb coffee can works great!) and request that she is do that instead.

With that said, you should still talk to the lady and/or the BO. The BO should be thrilled that you don't want to feed your horse.. that's more money in her pocket! However, if your horse is loud and paws during feeding time that may be her concern in which case the Beet Pulp would be an excellent compromise.

In that conversation you should say "I don't want to come off demanding and I really do love your facilities but I've requested a few times that my horse not be fed (or be fed a certain way) and I keep finding grain in her bucket. If we can't resolve this issue, I will need to find another boarding facility."

I know myself as a barn owner want to please my boarders as much as possible but it really leaves a sour taste when boarders are snarky and witchy about it. Just be polite and hope for the best!

Good Luck!
