It's not >_> It's being run by a new teacher now who hopefully takes it more seriously. Our previous one had those "backyard" horses and doesn't really highly value horses but loves them. I think in her mind, a horse that is fed/watered is perfectly fine.
The place they boarded before was AWESOME. They had amazing facilities, lots of pasture turn outs, many riding rings/corrals/turn-outs/hot walkers, and everything was way more professional. Horses even get bedding! (Gee, strange concept here... -.- ) They switched because some students got yelled at for "using too much water" because they left the hose running. GAH!!!
This new woman is so far very nice, and she finally listened and switched my gelding to higher quality hay and way less grain. He's barely worked, so I personally think he should be on only hay, but this is at least better... for now! Before he was getting a whole full large scoop of grain a day! And now they all have lovely shavings for beddings that actually pads, and their water bales were completely full. Not to mention, amazingly enough, there was contact info on the stalls this time! *SHOCKER*
I hope things look up. So far, they have with this new woman, the abscess wasn't her fault at all, but the past woman's.
I will tell you his progress, definitely. I can't wait to see him again, see if they're doing something, or if I really will have to do this all myself. Let's hope for the first!!
