Had a little texting chat with R today. She works at the barn I ride/board/work as well.
Remember the post about me bitching that stalls didn't get done for 1-2 days during the snowstorm when the worker who was feeding for those days lived on the farm and didn't need to worry about getting to the barn (driving wise)?
Well, apparently things are still going awry.
Everytime I feed it takes me an extra hour because the stalls are so FILTHY and bare.
Apparently everytime R feeds, it is the same scenario.
So someone is not doing their job and stalls are still not getting taken care of properly.
Right now there is still snow covering the path to A barn and B barn but people can still go through the arena that connects the barns...not a hard concept.
This pisses me off in a bad way since, a) I was getting blamed a bit for it b) I do EXTRA work everytime I go c) I am not getting the care I pay for
I don't MIND doing stalls and I don't MIND doing MY share of the work (hell I don;t even mind doing extra every once in a blue moon since it is the horses I care about). But I will not and can not stand for my horses' care (as well as others) suffering. Sure sure, horses can stand to stand in their own excrement for a day or two. But no, not when I pay as much as I do in board for exceptional care. I don't believe the barn owner owner would be happy to hear about this.
Am I going off the wall, or should I be as mad as I am about a 'little' thing like stalls not getting cleaned and not having ample enough bedding?
