I bought a tin of [human] cookies for my barn owners one year.
Depends on the relationship you have with the owners. Since you are the only boarder, maybe you are closer to them. But I figured just the "I thought of you" gift of cookies was enough for/from me.

The idea for doing something for the help is a good idea too. Even homemade cookies in cute baggies would be appreciated probably. (as long as they don't have allergies or something!) =P

I am the only border at a private farm. BO doesn't even own a horse :) I have bought them very nice fruit baskets (which they really enjoyed) and gift cards to some of the nicer restaurants in the area. They have always seemed very pleased. This year I though dinner and a movie :)

Only give booze if you know your BO drinks! I get booze on occasion and I'm not a frequent drinker by any means so what happens is I set it out at the Christmas party and watch my boarders drink it all and regret it the next day!

I 2nd that ^^
I don't drink. So it wouldn't do me any good. I'm sure most people Do drink, but still, it's not something you should assume.

yes the thought is always appreciated, but it doesn't mean one should assume that that is good enough because it's the easiest.

Just saying, one should consider food allergies, beliefs, dis/likes when gift giving. There are so many other options.

I don't think that they drink. I am not too sure but I never see wine bottles in the house etc.

What do you guys think about gift cards to say Home Depot, Tractor Supply etc.... I was thinking last night that there are ALWAYS things to maintain at a stable/barn. Or is that too... impersonal?
