Replacing Fence Boards...a border expense?
I've a horse and his field has some boards in the fence needing replacing. He plays across the fence with other horses, the fence isn't new and several of the horses have chewed the wood. It's not a dedicated paddock and he's been in several different fields.
I'm hearing through the grapevine the BO will be asking me to pay for board replacements. I pay board, barns have wear and tear and wood fences (no hotwire) get old and do get chewed.
Am I being unfair or unreasonable to not want to pay extra to replace boards that were there before I started boarding and all horses are rough on the physical plant at barns.
