    This is getting a little off track from the OP's question, but an owner is virtually always responsible for the actions/damages caused by their animal. So if you own a horse and it is boarded but...

    Without knowing the specifics of your operation it is hard for me to comment too much on what you are paying. The $1139 sounds very reasonable to me but my opinion is not worth much without knowing...

    French Fry is right, there IS a market for Arabian hunters but they are called Welsh ponies without papers or Welsh pony crosses (without papers). I know more than one out there, and I'm sure there...

    Agreed. I'd be surprised if this was strangles. But at a boarding stable where other people/horses are involved, an emergency vet visit--arranged and paid for by the owner--is in order to rule it...

    Sounds to me like you handled things perfectly. Leases aren't permanent, and it was a good situation while it lasted. I agree, it is so much better when people are up front about what they can and...

    I think you are getting a bit ahead of yourself. I'd be more worried about making sure that introductions go well and that the two get along.

    Horses are social creatures and whenever possible...

    I doubt it...although the species do not share many pathogens, sheep and cattle farmers are typically very careful about contagious diseases. Sheep farmers deal with their own abscess...

    I'm not convinced that the BO has asked the OP to leave because her horse has strangles--it might have more to do with how she is handling it. How would you feel if you were managing a boarding barn...

    Ok, take a deep breath. Your horse may or may not have strangles. I have had horses with strangles and I also have had multiple horses with abscesses in that area who had different diagnoses. Your...

    Personally I'm with SnicklefritzG. It's a huge move to go from keeping horses boarded with a trainer to keeping them at home. I would not lease a horse of mine to a situation where it was being kept...

    I was sort of offended by the "toy" comment too, that's just such a common mindset that trainers and barn owners want clients to pay for their "toys."

    Personally I would refuse. It would be one thing if she was asking for everyone to be part of a management program based on scientifically proven/vet recommended animal husbandry practices, but DE is...

    There is a steep learning curve to foaling mares. Caring for broodmares and newborn foals isn't something you can learn from a book (though obviously that helps). There are a million different things...

    It really isn't worth risking someone's health/safety/life to fix a dangerous horse. Rearing is indeed a very dangerous habit, and it is a habit that even if you can improve it, it is something the...

    If I get blisters on my legs from riding I use moleskin to continue riding without making the blister worse. The directions say not to put it directly on a blister but I do that frequently and have...

    That's one of the most frustrating things about the horse industry--there are a lot of clients out there that are offended by any situation where a barn owner or trainer might be actually be earning...

    Speaking as someone who owns a farm and also travels to shows, I can tell you that my "at home" bills don't go down that much--or really at all--when I have horses off at shows. I can't lay off...

    A boarding barn owner owes absolutely zero to outside trainers who wish to teach train at that facility. As a boarding barn owner, I can tell you it is not cost neutral to have outside instructors...

    Once again jsalem hits the nail on the head.

    I can't get past your statement that you don't think you will need a tractor. How would that work? I'm pretty sure you will need a tractor.

    I don't understand the vitriol--if you dislike a person and their barn so much, just move and move on! No horses are being held hostage at this facility, right?

    I wouldn't touch on this point...

    Well, the $10 fee is $10/month, not $10/lesson. Probably the BO should get rid of that fee and just charge the $15/lesson to the trainer.

    It seems unrealistic that your BO would expect the...

    Charging a fee for outside trainers to use the facilities is very reasonable and normal. $10-$15 per lesson is very typical and certainly nothing out of the ordinary. If this is the nicest facility...

    It really depends on the specifics of the chips. You need a second opinion. A tiny bone chip the size of a grain of rice located away from the joint is no big deal. Chips can form similar to OCDs as...
