After about 2 weeks of me going nightly to feed and water my horses, magically it was already done (pellets, supplements, hay and buckets full of clean water). I continued to go every day for another 7 to 10 days... and it continued.
So what has changed.... When other boarders started asking same questions I was, and voicing some of same concerns some investigating was done.
Turns out my fears were not unfounded...
Long story ~ short: BM has decided to move on, BO has taken over BM duties.
