How much would you pay?? -also looking for boarding in central PA
Long story trying to keep short.
My horse was getting noooooo turn out and he has bad arthritis. A "friend" had her own place.. She said bring him here $150 for field board will feed grain and bring in if its really bad weather. Just help when hay is delivered to pay my half and help feed/clean now and then. Keep in mind I watched their house 5 dogs, clean stalls, turn out, rode their horses for a week while they were on vacation for FREE.
Well for my sanity I want to move to the place down the road where my friends are. I made the mistake of mentioning how their rate of $285 (they have 100+acres of trails, two rings, indoor, full care) is reasonible.. Now my "friend" is wanting to up charge me.
She starting bringing in my horse more and feeding him more grain and telling me is costing her more then what I am paying.
I never asked for any of that. He needs his supplements and they have the habbit of tossing grain on the ground with 2 other horses which all end up swapping feed.
OK quiestion is - until I can get over to my friends place (they are booked) How much would I need to get down and go over a flat rate with her. Maybe $150 isn't enough but she doesnt consitently take care of my horses needs, not to metion countless times I picked up extra feed and help ride her horses etc. Since shes making it seem like I'm cheaping her money - I want to sit down and have her right up an agreement till I can find a place ot move.
How much would you pay for MOSTLY pasture board w. 2x grain and some hay?? IDK why shes been bringing him in - weather is fine (I think she just wants to say he's costing her money) and she tells me he gets unlimited hay but they only bought 50 bales (in march) and just NOW are getting more delivered...uh theres 5 horses unlimited hay my butt!
Sorry about the rant!! If anyone knows any temp places I could move that be sweet!!
