This would have avoided any thrush treatment from staining the floor.
Just saying
I think she said the BO didn't want her doing it in the stall either.

Here is my list of barn rules. I give all boarders a copy

Here are the rules:
1. Please leave keys in car while riding in case we have to move it
2. Minors must wear helmet when around horses, riding, grooming, in aisle etc.
3. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions bring to BO (barn owner)


OTHER NOTE WORTHY RULES
1. All screaming or crying children must be given a ride on golf cart , ATV or dragged behind piece of equipment until quiet
2. All children must be cute ( to be decided by BO)
3. Dogs allowed- (must also be cute)
4. Cribbers must have strap hanging somewhere collecting dust
5. No boarder may ride another boarder's horse without permission unless it is ROO
6. Treats must be periodically brought to BO unless home made by Amy
7. All holes dug by children in aisle or arena must be filled in before leaving
8. No riding through villages made by children in arena while said children are present
9. Horses see well in poorly lit areas, arena lights are not to be used unless you want to see also
10. If BO suggests you try something while riding you must do so without question, this is for your enrichment & great entertainment for BO
11. If ANYONE talks to ANYONE about ANYTHING horse related while riding this will be considered a lesson & a fee must be paid to BO. Boarders must keep track of these 'lessons'
12. Boarders may use only their own equipment/brushes unless they see something else they want to use
13. If you fall off you will be laughed at
14. If you fall off & are hurt you will still be laughed at but will get an apology
15. If you fall off & are killed, well, you won't know either way
16. No crying while mounted
17. Crying while being mounted is allowed

My horse used to prefer his stall, but the irritation of his feet or being edgy, hungry, and full of worms made him a little bit more aggitated than the horse I know.

I suppose I could have tried to do the thrush treatments in the stall even though he has a tendency to dance around with his tender feet. The crossties just really helped me keep him still and get the maximum amount of medicine to stay on his foot. Also, given how wet his stall was anyway, I couldn't soak or clean his foot in the stall. I really didn't need anymore water in the stall.

Them's good rules :)

No matter what road I travel, I'm going home and if I'm riding a horse I am halfway there.
