I'd rate this pretty high, not many barns have someone on 24/7 that is actually in this category.
BO is very knowledgeable and can usually take care of almost anything without calling in a vet, but also knows when to call one
Have you discussed this with your BO?
--Turn-out has gone downhill. Used to be 8-10 hours/day, now it’s 4 hours/day.
--2 of my 3 are getting very hot/anxious due to lack of turnout and cribber has gotten worse with cribbing because of it
Have you considered moving to Adequan etc injections instead & just have the vet out regularly?
BO does not regularly keep up with the joint supplement I buy the old guy
Does the supplement actually make her feel better? or just you :)
nor the digestive supplement I bought for special needs girl
if she's been fine for 2.5 years, chances are she'll be fine for the next several months...
Easy enough to do :)
BO is very into natural meds, so no regular worming (I have to buy it/do it)
(read some papers on the efficacy of dewormers vs just keeping paddocks etc clean)
Depending on your area, this may be a bigger issue than you expect.
BO doesn’t mind that 1 of my horses cribs
it’s depressing not to see them more often
This is important, so start looking for someplace closer to home :yes: - even if you end up just moving one of them initially.
I’m struggling with this because *I miss them* so much and feel like I’m about to break without them closer to me. Plus, if something really bad were to happen, I’m SO far away
